I'm sorry, but this is far too funny

American government. Gotta love it, no?

Have a look here, at this PDF document:
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf
Some horrendous form to do with paying American tax. Just go to the bottom, where you see the text, "Printed on Recycled Paper"

Has anyone got any thin concrete I can feed through my printer to print that out on?

Digital recycled paper?

Seriously, how stupid is that mistake? I mean, when printed okay, but a PDF-file... :P 8)

http://www.flyingthingz.com - that's where they get their ideas from :D :lol: :D

I mean, there's even a flying DOGHOUSE there :roll:

OK, a bit more mundane, but how about this for stupidity with knobs on?
Yesterday, we were sent an email at work to say that email services were down. A couple of hours later, I received it together wih a second email saying that email services had been restored :!: Duh!

If you look on their site you'll see that you can also get a flying witch and a flying army tank in addition to the aforementioned doghouse :!:

Flying doghouse? Of course! What do you think Snoopy flew when he went up against the Red Baron?

I work for the IRS, Angoid. I can show you funnier forms than this. The forms are nothing. It is the tax law which will have you pulling your hair and drooling on yourself.

Tax laws are enough to drive you to drink and drugs, regardless of the country you reside in .... fortunately I don't do drink, drugs nor tax laws...

Still love the form they ask you when you enter the USA in which they ask if you have ever been involved in a crime involving moral terpitude. Always makes me smile, that one.
Used to be asked on the green card you filled out on the plane, but nowadays it's on the ESTA (online) form that you must do before flying to the States.
