This just in: Nintendo has patented the "Breakfast Taco" they have made over 400 billion dollars in the past 30 minutes.

Holy duck **** Micro$oft just patented the word computer! /S

On topic, I'd buy that for a dollar!

I patented money itself, everyone who owns money, has to pay me.

@Chrischi1988: But they can't pay you without paying you, which requires paying you, which they can't do until they pay you.

Endless paradox resulting in you not getting any money because you patented money and so no one can use it until they pay you.

@Cobra: Not exactly. There are methods to have your income tax done for free.

For example, the law states that you have to FILE your income tax, not that you have to DO your income tax. You can actually make the government do your income taxes for you, though that's inadvisable for many many reasons.

~A spokesperson close to the deal explained that Washington has been on the lookout for new ways to peer into unsuspecting civilians’ homes, and Twitch falls right in line with the NSA’s ideals.

“We’re going to be able to reduce staff and technology costs,” claimed an NSA agent, beaming with glee.

“These idiots… I mean, USERS, are going to voluntarily let us in on their chats, in their homes, where we can watch and hear everything that goes on. It’s a dream come true for the NSA!” When asked if a “gazillion” dollars was even a real amount of money, the agent replied quickly.

“I have no idea,” he said casually.
“We’re the government. If we run out of money, we just print more. This will all be funded by the taxpayers, anyways.”
