Who are the ad wizards that came up with this one?*

It's tax season, and I've noticed there are two competing ads on TV.

TurboTax has an ad campaign where people are at a tax office and realize it's a waste of money, in effect saying, "Hey, you're not a retard! You can do your taxes without H&R Block."

H&R Block has an ad campaign where some guy fucks up his taxes by using software, in effect saying, "Hey, you are a retard! If you use TurboTax you'll end up doing a dime in federal prison."

I'm not sure which ad campaign will win.

* Stand Up and Win was the best SNL game show ever.

Whichever tax preparation ad contains nudity will win. At least in MY book.

I'm expecting a big cupcake return this year.

TurboTax could advertise that you can do your taxes completely naked.

H&R Block would then counter that you look silly and you should put some damned pants on and go to their office.

i'm really confused on what to do this tax year. last year i did it myself and it was so easy. i did it on paper and sent that bitch in! this year i was wanting to try turbo tax.

any advice?

I've used TurboTax for many years and never had a problem. Although, I have nothing to compare it to.

However, I was thinking about using TaxCut this year instead, because they offer audit defense for free.

And considering how much you cheat on your taxes, Booty, good call.

I mean, you can't claim everyone who comments on this blog as a dependent.

H&R block has a robotic hand that you connect to your PC via USB or firewire. when you complete your taxes, the robotic hands goes down your pants.

so i do my taxes quarterly these days instead of choice.

Best idea to reduce tax cheats ever.

But it is the biggest retard who pays big bucks for a retard accountant who fucks up your taxes for you. But the wonderful irony makes up for it all.
