Should probably be the YRS, though. (But I can see that would risk killing the joke.)

Much as I think that an organization as totalitarian as the IRS should die in a fire... I can still laugh at jokes about them. E.

You can't polymorph into an @, and the joke would hardly be lessened if the symbol for a taxman was given as &. Still, quite Good.

Snicker. :p

#5 Dentarthurdent Wed, 7 Oct 2009 12:26:14
Not quite true, NobodySpecial. You can polymorph into an Elvenking. I can't remember how many other @ are valid poly targets, though.

A comic has to be funny, not correct...

#7 Sorceror Wed, 7 Oct 2009 13:07:36
Should probably change IRS symbol to & and wait for it to appear in SLASHEM.

How fitting: IRS - an invisible, snakelike creature rotting your treasury.

Or in vanilla, as a hallucination-substitute for leprechauns. :D

@NobodySpecial, and everyone else who suggests &: I think V would work much better.

The taxman could also be a $.
