Tacks Day

Ben Franklin once said, “…[I]n this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” He also once said, “I sure have banged a lot of broads in my day, but I bet that won’t keep me from having my face on money.” He was right on both accounts.

This cartoon is the brainchild of my known associate, Wayno of Pittsburgh, who, on his own delightful blog, has blamed it on his wife. (I haven’t read her blog yet so I don’t know if she continues to pass the buck.)

Some of you regular readers may remember my former wife, called “CHNW” on this blog. We were married on April 15th, 2002. Many people have asked me why we got married on a day that strikes fear and loathing in the hearts of most Americans and I always responded, “If the marriage works out, it will make a bad day better. If it doesn’t, it was a lousy day anyway.”

Like Franklin, I was right on both accounts.
