Friday Funnies: Tax Time Edition

Finding humor in the inevitable

ComplainingThe old saying is that the only sure things in life are death and taxes. And while we don’t have anything in America quite as silly as a tax on beards (as was placed on Russians by Peter the Great in 1705 as a way to encourage the clean-shaven look so popular throughout Europe at the time) or strangely high taxes on playing cards and dice (which were in place in England from 1710 until 1960), bucking up every Spring can still be a frustrating experience.

But where did all that money go … ?


Oh. That’s where all that money went.


Beacause of course he did.
