Tax Day

Tax Day is a good day to remember the late Jeff MacNelly classic 1040 Form cartoon. The online version is just a little too low-resolution to fully appreciate, but I can’t scan a better one because my copy is at home in Ireland, in a book called The Gang of Eight. I remember buying it in the late 1980s, but it took me till well after I got to the U.S. for grad school before I understood the joke about ‘Filing Status’ (the choices are ‘Single’, ‘Double’, and ‘Sacrifice Fly’).
