"Knee in the package"

On the lighter side of taxes this tax season, if you haven't seen "Knee in the Package", a spoof ad by Rick Mercer which parodies the "Hand in My Pocket" ad, get yourself to the Mercer Report on the CBC website:

The spoof features such lines as "Tax evasion is illegal so just get it over with and you might feel normal again by July" and "the best 60% of your money you'll ever spend". Well worth the download! Two tax forms up!
