Give the government all your money, then get free stuff

Paying your taxes is not equivalent to just throwing your money in the trash, according to a new study, because paying the gub’mint gives you a “warm glow” utility that makes “you feel good about helping others” or some such socialist claptrap.  Perhaps you’re particularly attuned to the oddness of our tax system after this year of Occupying and injustice that you don’t have your own car elevator to write off. Well too bad! There’s nothing to be done about it now except to dull the pain. This year’s tax day freebies include the usual roundup of fast food options from Arby’s, Hooters and IHOP, but also includes a relief program at Halyards that features free drinks!


Hooters: 20 boneless wings for $9.99.

Arby’s: Free value-sized (small) curly fries and a chance to win $5,000. Get it when you “Like” Arby’son Facebook

Cinnabon: Two free “Bites” – tiny Cinnabon rolls – per customer between 6-8pm.

Seattle’s Best Coffee: A free sample of ground coffee with a Facebook “like.”

-Not strictly tax-related per se, but still free and fun: Last Exit in Cobble Hill is launching its new Slurring Bee, an adult spelling bee, tonight at 9pm. It’s $5 to enter (free to watch): after every word you spell right, you get another drink of special Slurring Bee nectar. Winner receives the cash pot and other prizes.
