I should be doing my taxes right now. For the record (and especially for those distinguished employees of the Internal Revenue Service – every one of whom I admire and respect – that might be reading this), I WILL DO MY TAXES. I promise. On time, accurately and everything.
Still, there are many things I would rather do than pull out old receipts and figure out how much I owe the tax man. I went into the archives and found a few cartoons to help explain.
10. Swim with sharks.
9. Get a colonoscopy.
8. Get violently ill.
7. Electrical shock.
6. Major surgery.
5. Get beat with a bat.
4. Get a root canal.
3. Drink someone else’s spit.
1. Poke a sharp stick in my eye.
To be fair, there are worse things than figuring out how much you owe in taxes. Lots of things.
I just can’t think of any right now.
