Steam Donkeys Call for End to Tax Season

Addressing a crowd of overworked, underpaid barflies at a local watering hole, a spokesperson for the Steam Donkeys—a Buffalo, NY-based music act and global think tank—called for an end to tax season.
“For too long, the State and Federal Governments have had their hands in your wallets!” Shouted Steam Donkeys front man and spokesperson Buck Quigley, as he motioned for another round. “This out of control taxation must come to an end immediately,” he added.
“Quigley’s fiery rhetoric does stir people’s emotions,” said one certified public accountant, on condition of anonymity, “But I have to question his timing. The tax deadline is today. So, with tax season over, I was planning on going down to this little place I have in the Florida Keys and smoking a bag of weed on the beach for a week. But, whatever. He thinks he’s a revolutionary.”
“The revolution has just begun,” says Quigley. “This Saturday (4/18), we’re calling for a mass demonstration at the Sportsmen’s Tavern. To send a strong message to Albany and Washington, we’ll be waiving all taxes on the $5 admission fee. We call that ‘Sticking it to the Man!'”
Joining the Steam Donkeys will be local favorites Randle and the Late Night Scandals—who will get the event going at 8:30pm. They will also be selling tax-free copies of their latest CD.
“We urge everyone to come out in force so we can finally put an end to this terrible burden on working men, women, and families—known as ‘tax season.'”
