OK, I'll admit: when I go to a wedding, I cringe when I have to sit through "Cupid Shuffle".

Ever hear of it? It was a 2007 hip-hop/R&B tune by a singer whose name just happens to be Cupid. The song wasn't a huge pop hit, but it did well on the R&B charts, peaking at #21.

Although it might have been limited to urban contemporary stations, "Cupid Shuffle" is a hit at weddings because, well, it's a dance and chicks love it. Guess who also likes it? The IRS.

Yep, the IRS is in hot water all because of some videos they made for several conferences they held all in the expense of taxpayers. One of the videos teaches people how to do the Shuffle, another parodies Star Trek, another does Gilligan's Island and so on.

So, why in the hell is the media giving two flying fucks about this? Good question. I think it's because of the backlash the IRS got for targeting teabaggers recently. Why? After all, since the Koch Brothers are worth billions, I could care less on how they're being taxed.

How about this: GAS PRICES ARE NOW $4.29 HERE IN MICHIGAN. Why can't the media worry more on that? After all, we the people are paying big oil BILLIONS. Same goes to the billionaires and companies like GE that hardly pay a dime in taxes.

But yet, we have to worry about some one-hit-wonder from the 2000's?

Sorry folks, but I could care less about the IRS. Tax those wealthy-ass motherfuckers for all I care. Let's sock 'em with a 90% tax rate like FDR did back in the 1930's. It only boosted the economy and created jobs.

As for the IRS, I'll worry about them if I hear that they made a video featuring the Cha-Cha Slide.
