* The world may laugh at America, but now America’s laughing at the world… competitively.

* Some people are just made of money.

* Want to colonize space? First, take all the drugs. Next, get a rocket…

* Thank you, science, for making a creepy robot man of our nightmares (this is not a Mitt Romney joke, we swear).

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyagers of the Starship Enterprise Y. Its never-ending mission is to seek out new tax forms. To explore strange new regulations. To boldly go where no government employee has gone before.

The IRS spent $60,000 to create this Stark Trek spoof for its employees. 

It is even worse than the time some creepy dude sent you a video of himself speaking Klingon. It is still better than Star Trek: Voyager.

Throw the Best Sequester Day Party Ever
Invite your friends over.
Pick an arbitrary time. When that time comes, take up to ten percent of your friends’ money from their wallets.
When they complain, blame someone else for coming up with the idea to take up to ten percent of their money.
Balloons are a fun touch.
