To Whom It May Concern:

I was downtown with a friend last week when a not unattractive woman passed by.

Damn. I'd like to tax that, my friend mumbled.

Tax what? I asked.

No. No. No. Not this. Please, not this.

But I don't understand. What do you want to tax?

Long pause here. Easily three minutes.

That ass, you fool. I want to TAX that ASS.

But you're a customer service manager! You can't levy taxes!

The conversation quickly devolved, as my friend grew frustrated with what he calls my incurable literal-mindedness.

I tried to get him to answer my question, but he acted like it was somehow beneath him. I only want to know how my friend, or anyone else for that matter, can tax that ass.

I figure if anyone can explain it, you can.
