That was actually pretty funny. Especially where it said, "If line 10 is larger than line 11, all refunds must be in bees. 10 pounds of bees will be deposited in your account."

I never get those parts: no matter how I measure the lines are always the exact same thickness.

No no, phunniemee, "miringue" is a new type of cookie made with rice wine that you just aren't familiar with.

It's a meringue made with ricin.

No, it's when you do a brisk Latin dance to a 2/4 beat on a Russian space station.

In those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

A bit of trivia: the IRS publishes 480 tax forms and 280 forms to explain those 480 forms. I don't even know what to say about that.

I'm getting Form 404. And here I was hoping I'd be able to file the 404EZ.

404 if you're on mobile. Mobile fail. Request desktop site on Android.

Too complicated. This is simpler.

From the comments: I just wrote ITS COMPLICATED on everything including the envelope.

Of course the tax forms are unnecessarily complicated and long-winded. That's why it's called progressive taxation.

That's around $200 worth of bees, by the way.

The bee-to-wasp exchange rate has gotten ridiculous. I'm sinking all my savings into ants. They're much more stable down the road. Thanks, ants!

I'm moving my wealth into witchetty grubs, but only because I so enjoy saying 'witchetty grub' aloud.
