Tax Day: All Around Suckage

It's tax time again here in the States. Yes, April 15th, the day souls are crushed, dreams are shattered and fortunes lost. But don't worry, you're not alone. For instance...

There's the tax pigs. If they grew that much between 1940 and 1951, imagine how big they are now. My God, they must be monstrous!


Then there's this lady with her son looking at the long form at the Federal Building in this pic from April 15th, 1958. She slaps her hand to her face, "Oy vey," she thinks, but just look at that crowd behind her. Major suckage going on there!


But don't worry Long Form Lady because even the stars have problems. Why it's Bette Davis in tax court in 1951. She sets an example to all of us by smiling even as Uncle Sam's lawyers are mere minutes away from reducing her pathetic lawyer to smoldering doggy poo. See, here's the thing, they're the IRS, and if they say you owe, YOU OWE! Period! Up yours Hollywood Star! Time to pay up!
