I hate to burst your bubble, but if you haven’t filed your 2015 tax return by now you may soon be in hot water with the IRS. Sure, most people don’t have the best impression of the Internal Revenue Service. Heck, who could like an institution that makes you get organized and think about numbers once a year? As it turns out, Last Week Tonight may change your whole attitude toward that most despised government agency with one very revealing report (and a sexy song). Also, Weird Al Yankovic will give you a new appreciation for going round and round, plus Hush Money will show you just what every father is thinking about their kid’s significant other. This week is looking better already!
John Oliver has a knack for changing our minds. I mean only HE could make infrastructure remotely interesting. Well, he’s done it again. Oliver invited THE Michael Bolton to woo us into thinking more kindly about those tax workers that separate us from our hard earned dollars on a yearly basis. Watch as Oliver’s Last Week Tonight compares the IRS to a mostly unpleasant, yet much needed part of the human anatomy. (Bolton fans, your muse drops in at 13:30.)
You know him as the king of pop parody but “Weird Al” is so much more than that. I only wish I could achieve this level of chill. If I had this apparatus in my backyard, I’d never do a lick of work again. Relish this exercise in playground zen.
What’s the one thing that every couple dreads? Meeting their partner’s parents, of course. Hush Money’s “Meeting The Parents” sketch shows just what every father really has on his mind when his beloved kid and beau pay a visit. (If you are at work, I’d lower the volume now.)
