First comment! Woo hoo!

A nickel tax for kissing a woman on the cheek? What's the tax for shtuping her?
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:15pm D:

Is this about as right wing as FMU gets?
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:17pm Sean Daily:

No, it's just an observation of an important annual event. We play Christmas songs at Christmas, so it seems logical to play tax songs at tax time.
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:17pm G.:

Apparently taxes have always been unpopular, who'd have guessed!

Nice selections as always, Joe...
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:17pm lou:

Why?
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:27pm Joe:

Thanks, G!
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:28pm D:

I apologize. That was a stupid joke. I like this music.
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:36pm Joe:

Thanks, D!
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:44pm Kenzo:

Thanks, Joe, for reading that Armenian translation! "Let me be shoes for your feet"
  Tue. 4/14/09 7:45pm Joe:

I know, it's lovely, isn't it?
