Here Is a Short List of People Less Deserving of Bonuses Than IRS Employees

Not sure if you heard the news but the IRS has made friendly with its employee union and will distribute $43 million in bonuses, $32 million short of what the union says employees were owed.

Well, Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah heard, and he felt this way about it:

"It’s hard to think of a group of people less deserving of bonuses than IRS employees."

In honor of that comment, we would like to humbly suggest a short list of people less deserving of bonuses than IRS employees. As always, feel free to add yours in the comments.

  • U.S. Senators
  • Heck, let's throw in all of Congress
  • Scott London
  • Fred Goodwin
  • Joe Namath and his stupid fur coat
  • Jamie Dimon
  • Peyton Manning
  • Everyone involved in the making of Gigli
  • People who don't use their turn signals
  • People who regularly use words like "dynamic" and "synergy"

Have any to add? Surely there are plenty more.
