Taxes are done! Well, they are on the way to the accountant.

Brother-in-Law, The Mouth, is next. His should be easy, if i can get into his tax program. He keeps giving me the wrong passwords, or neglecting to tell me that certain letters are capitals, or whatever.

By the end of the weekend, i want his done, too.

In other news, the kids didn't kill each other over the pranking and revenge getting for April Fools Day.

In honor of National Humor Month:

If a person is fluent in English and profanity, does that make him bilingual?

Boudreaux was riding along the highway when a truck passes with some pigs in it.
One of the pigs falls out and Boudreaux stops to pick it up.

A while later, a state trooper stops and says "Boudreaux, what you doin with dat pig?"

Boudreaux says "A man passed by wid a truck full of pigs and dis one fell out. I was goin to try to catch up with de truck and give de man his pig back."

The state trooper says "Boudreaux, dat man is long gone, why don't you just take dat pig to de zoo?"

Boudreaux said "OK".

A couple of days later, the state trooper sees Boudreaux on the highway with the pig still in his truck.

He stops Boudreaux and says "Didn't I tell you to bring dat pig to the zoo?"

Boudreaux says "Mais, yea, but we had so much fun at de zoo dat I tink we are gonna go to AstroWorld now!"
