One Big Happy (2/28/10)

Every year around tax time, the folks at Liberty Tax Service do their best to reel in people who have neither the time nor the inclination to fill out their own 1040s. One of the company’s least subtle methods of attracting customers is to take some poor sap, dress him up in a Statue of Liberty costume, and send him out onto a busy street to flag down passing cars. The felt get-up resembles the chicken costume in panel three of this strip, and with Liberty storefronts all over Chicago, these mini mascots are almost impossible for me to avoid. This particular tax preparer also places giant balloons atop its roofs to draw attention to itself. Needless to say, I’ve always chosen to have my taxes done elsewhere.
