Do You Like Scary Taxes?

Jeff Stahler, 3/14/11:
They say that we get the government we deserve, so a people that equates paying taxes at all with being slaughtered by a serial killer -- as seen in this cartoon as well as one by Milt Priggee  -- is clearly doomed to have eternal budget battles because we just can't manage to fund the stuff we want to do entirely by taking money from other people.

In other taxes-are-hell news, Joe Heller at least makes it a gas prices joke, which isn't original but is at least distinctive. And John Cole misses the movie reference, but has the same attitude: it's better to die than to pay taxes. John R. Rose goes with the time-tested "death and taxes" reference, and is yet another cartoonist who can't pass up a chance to drawn the Grim Reaper.

But, guys, pssst! Tax Day isn't actually until Monday this year.

  1. I'd just like to point out that it's not "scream 4". It's "Scre4m" or "screfourm".
