Death & Taxes
. . . I cannot refrain from making the following suggestion to the civilized nations of the world.
As a means of increasing their tax receipts and of thereby being able to pay their debts, and at the same time to build, equip and endow hospitals for all communities, thereby benefiting humanity instead of satisfying our own sentimental vanity, I propose that a tax of 100% be placed on the cost of burial, starting with the wreath or what have you after death, through to the finished and marked grave.
