Mallard Fillmore jumps on Fat Uncle Sam Bandwagon

My good freind and protege Bill Tinsley is using my Fat Uncle Sam character in his latest Mallard Fillmore. I haven't been following the previous 30 installments of this storyline closely, but apparently Fat Uncle Sam has run out of bacon double cheeseburgers and has resorted to stuffing his mouth with green polaroid photos. He's also bringing us the facts that the mainstream media want you to ignore: "The costs of operating the tax system eat up an estimated 65 percent of every dollar collected from us!"
Unfortunately, Fat Uncle Sam seems to continue to be a lightning rod for attacks from narrow-minded trolls on the internets. Somebody here says: "So, in 2004, the federal government took in 1.88 trillion in taxes. According to Tinsley's 'fact' (the one ignored by the MSM), that means that the IRS' budget must have been 1.22 trillion in 2004. I wonder why Congress appopriated only 10.2 billion for the IRS budget in 2004. Tinsley was off by more than a factor of 100. Impressive."
You morons! You've obviously fallen for the lies of the mainstream media, which as Bill so eloquently tells us, does not include syndicated newspaper cartoons. That Mallard Fillmore shit is the underground.
