Frank gets annoyed

I have a good friend named Frank. We talk on the phone at least once a week.

Yesterday he told me this story:

He received a letter from the IRS. Inside the envelope there was an overpayment check for $14.62.

“Not much to get excited about,” said Frank. “But there was something else in the envelope. It was a letter about taking my check and investing it in government securities!”

The humor in that statement takes a second to seep in.

Did you receive your rebate check yet? I think it is supposed to be $600, right? I heard we were supposed to receive it on May 23rd. I’m still waiting. It’s fun to think about how I can spend that princely sum but I strongly doubt I will put it into an investment.

Quote: “Next to being shot at and missed, nothing is quite as satisfying as an income tax refund.”

Quote: “When are we going to be allowed to list the government as a dependent?”

Do you realize that some tax forms ask you to check a box if you are BLIND?

Under the Freedom of Information Act, a man with a small business sent a request to the IRS asking if they had a file on him. The IRS wrote back, “There is now.”

See you next time!

Laura Ingram is a big bad b*tch

That headline is just to get some attention.

Actually, I do enjoy listening to Laura Ingram. Once in a while she gets my dander up but usually I know that she is trying to do just that.

This week she’s been blasting Keith Olbermann. Keith can be irksome too.

But Laura said he is saying bad things about the troops. Sorry, Laura, you missed his meaning intentionally or not.

If you really believe that it is because you are so deep into Conservatism that you do not understand the language of liberals.

More later…
