• QOTD: Just How Deep Is That Hole, Exactly, Sir?

    By | January 6, 2014

    It's been a looooong time since we've done a Quote of the Day but this one is too good to ignore yet not interesting enough to warrant an entire missive on its true meaning. This is new IRS commissioner John Koskinen to reporters in Washington after his swearing-in this afternoon:

    “It took a little while to dig the hole, and it’s going to take us a little while to get out of it."

    Discuss if needed.

      Don’t forget to send the first year to observe the measurement

        Lower them down into the hole a la Ghostbusters 2, just watch out for the pink slime.

    • Happy P.O.S. Accountant

      I think “pile” would have been a better metaphor than “hole” especially since a hole can only be so deep but a pile can go on forever…and the pile would smell more like what the IRS actually does than a hole would.
