DURST: New IRS Taxpayer Friendly Slogans
April 25, 2000
The IRS is under Congressional mandate to become less like the Spanish Inquisition and more ... well, cuddly. And to be honest, it's having a harder time than Dan Quayle with his MENSA membership application. Imagine Isabella Rosellini trying to act dowdy. Or a pound of liver trying to survive a whole week at a Cat Show. As part of the turnaround, they've opened a hotline where waiting for affable agents to politely answer your questions, pleasant new wave music lulls you into security. What they obviously need is a good tax payer friendly slogan.*The IRS: when you need a hug.*When you need us, we'll be around.*The IRS: just a bundle of cash a day is all we ask.*The New Improved Fat Free Low Cholesterol IRS.*The Internal Revenue Service, just a smile away.*The IRS: we're not your father's tax collector anymore.*We're the IRS. Go ahead, screw with us. We don't care anymore.*Hey, its not like we take everything.*We care because it's not just your money, it's our money too.*The IRS: we're back and we're nice now. Really.*Tasty, and we're good for you too.*The Modern IRS: think of South Park all grown up.*The IRS: we still don't need a warrant, but we'll get one if you ask.*The IRS: we're the People People.*Give us a little kiss: the IRS.
