I’m always surprised what I can find with a Google image search, and today is no exception. Here we have the fearsome I.R.S. Dragon, a fearsome beast that we Americans must face every spring. (I.R.S. stands for Internal Revenue Service, for my non-U.S. readers.)
Tax day is usually April 15th (which was Friday), but that was a federal holiday in our nation’s capital, so we get an extra few days this year. Tomorrow, April 18th, is the final day to file your taxes, and as I am a devout procrastinator, I have of course waited until the last minute myself. But the forms are in the mail now, promise!
I found this dragon on a tax help site for a business located in California, with the odd name of “Orange County Tax Help, IRS Problems Resolution, Back Taxes, & Debt Settlement, Inc.” I suppose that’s a fine, descriptive name, but then I realized, that’s also their website address. Seriously, the whole name, written out:
http://www.orangecountytaxhelpirsproblemsresolutionbacktaxesdebtsettlement.com/index.php. I found it funny, anyhow.
The dragon is on their Audit Help page as above, and then on another more specific audit page as below, attacking the poor taxpayers. I wasn’t able to find any information on the artist — my guess is the service either hired someone to create the graphic, or they had someone in-house do it. I wish I could credit them — I mean, I’ve never seen a dragon in a dress shirt and tie, and this guy’s pretty amazing!
All right, enjoy your Sunday everyone, thanks for reading and remember to stop back tomorrow for the next letter in the A to Z Challenge!
