That was a big tax refund you got there.

I don't think I could buy one, my refund won't be that big.

Maybe I could lease one with the option to purchase though.

Lets see, .50 cents down - 36 months @.02 cents and a another .50 cents.
at the end of the lease.

One can always dream...




Thanks for the laugh...

Refund? What's a refund? If I'm lucky enough to get hit for less tax than I actually sent in, the excess amount just gets applied to the April estimated tax payment for 2011 :-(

If you're getting a tax return, you're lending too much to the gubmint anyway... I'd rather they loan me the money instead... even for the short while between the estimated tax payments...

I live next to a Air Force base, so my return on taxes flies over the house a few times a day!

The sound of freedom! Or is that Freedumb?

Anyway the fighter jets use massive amounts of jet fuel. The f-18 at full afterburner burns approx. 2 gals a mile. That's enough for a fleet of trucks! Sometimes I can look out and see 6 jets in the air at one time.

I get a refund cuz I have 3 kids. Go go tax credit! I also under-claim my dependents, so that they take out too much, to guarantee a refund.

I gotta say,
My first thought, when I red the title, was;
"How much @#$%^ing money did he make last year.
Then, the reality, when I got here to see -

Priceless
