    The Gettysburg address is 269 words, the Declaration of Independence
    is 1,337 words, and the Holy Bible is only 773,000 [I don't know what
    version the author was referring to] words. However, the tax law has
    grown from 11,400 words in 1913, to 7 million words today.

    The IRS sends out 8 billion pages of forms and instructions each
    year. Laid end to end, they would stretch 28 times around the earth.

    Nearly 300,000 trees are cut down yearly to produce the paper for all
    the IRS forms and instructions.

    The IRS employs 114,000 people; that's twice as many as the CIA and
    five times more than the FBI.

    Taxes eat up 38.2% of the average family's income; that's more than
    for food, clothing and shelter combined.

    A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo,
    and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones
    at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for
    the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the
    whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest

    In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast
    as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all
    know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and
    weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer
    eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and
    more efficient machine.

    And that's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    A visitor from Holland was chatting with his American friend
    and was jokingly explaining about the red, white and blue in
    the Netherlands flag.

    "Our flag symbolizes our taxes," he said. "We get red when
    we talk about them, white when we get our tax bill, and blue
    after we pay them."

    "That's the same with us," the American said, "only we see
    stars, too."
