Taxes are due on Monday and you haven't even started? Well, we have the perfect excuse for you.
Here are the Top Reasons You Haven't Done Your Taxes.
Whenever you log onto your computer to use TurboTax, you're distracted by this fascinating thing called "pornography."
You know some of your taxes will fund the war on drugs. And you love drugs.
Hey, you try calculating an adjusted gross income with an abacus!
You're not good with numbers. Or letters. Okay, you're illiterate.
You lost track of The Time. But oddly, not Morris Day. Because he's playing at your local boat show this weekend.
You morally disagree with the Obama administration's use of drones. Oh and also because you owe money.
You're banking on the whole "North Korea blowing up the world" thing-y.
You're waiting to see if you can write off your recent Cuba trip as an educational expense.
Your name is Mitt Romney and what the hell are taxes?
This may come as a shock, but occasionally things on the Internet are exaggerated. Not everything that happens is "insane" or "epic."
According to an email poll, here are the nine most overused adjectives online.
6. Epic. (This seems awfully low for "epic". It really gets used less than "innovative"?)
New in theatres this weekend: 42 - The True Story of Jackie Robinson, an American Legend.
Chadwick Boseman plays Robinson, the first African American to ever play major league baseball, and Harrison Ford is the guy who signed him to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Robinson wore the number 42 on his jersey.
Robinson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1962. The Dodgers won six pennants during his time with the team, and he was named the National League MVP in 1949. He stayed with them for 10 years before retiring from baseball in 1956.
I’m sure the film will be hilarious, insane, mind-blowing, awesome, innovative and epic.
Ok, maybe not hilarious.
