Another from Will and Guy

** Tax Return **

There was a man who made his tax returns promptly and properly only to find that he owed the IRS [Internal Revenue Service], in 1997, $3407USD. [Somewhat less than £2000] He packaged up his payment and included this letter:

Dear IRS,

Enclosed is my 1997 tax return and payment. Please take note of the attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers and NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat.

Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2400) and six hammers (value $1029).

This brings my total payment to $3429.00. Please note the overpayment of $22.00 and apply it to the 'Presidential Election Fund', as noted on my return. Might I suggest you then send the above mentioned fund a '1.5 inch screw'. (See attached article - HUD paid $22.00 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw.)

It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year. I have just read an article about the Pentagon and 'screwdrivers'.


Disgruntled of Oklahoma.

That is funny. I remember the Pentagon paying thousands of dollars for a toilet seat was big news a few years ago.

This is so cool and something to remember if I ever owe them.

Hahahaha! Disgruntled is funny!

Yep, have not blogged since last Easter. Even Face Book is losing it's charm for me. Just too many other things to do, I guess.

You enjoying this season's DWS?

Have a nice evening, Patty.

Oh, if only we could. Right now I have 2 old toilet seats that need a home.
