Dan Geddes Video Selection (1/2)


Dan Geddes is a true stalwart not only of Glossy News, but of humor and satire in general. He has done a lot of stand-up comedy, which you can find on his Youtube channel. I’m sure you’re not gonna die of surprise when I tell you that like every single other humorist in the history of satire, without exception, Dan is rather shy and reserved, and never likes to be the first person in the room to break an uncomfortable silence. Even so, I hope he’ll forgive me for introducing these videos to you!

Taxes and Death (And Taxes)

Glossy News Soccer, um, FOOTBALL Round-up! (2/2)


Football Legend

Self-styled, very much self-stylish, and scandalously glossy-cape-porting Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has made thinking about football, dreaming about football, or otherwise being remotely aware of the historical existence of football, an unforgivable and inexcusable hate crime against The Greater Good.

Back of the Old Onion Swag

And on a completely unrelated note to the latter tyrannical and highly bureaucratic measure, the UK Government have passed a new benevolently-Tory-paternalistic motion. Read the full story

Ideas Man Newt Gingrich Finally Solves Fiscal Responsibility Problem


The new Newt Gingrich is re-branding himself as the Ideas Man™ of the Republican Party, but this time he’s outdone even himself with an astonishingly innovative solution.

“You know what, everybody? We all know about the fiscal responsibility problem, and it’s really intractable. Too much dogmatism on both sides, unwillingness to compromise, the whole complexity of the situation. You know I’m no idealist, I’m a practical thinker, not a bookworm. (Ouch!™ fail!).

Harry Reid Takes on Bundy Family, Al says “Let’s Rock”


(Nevada) – Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has doubled down on his name calling by referring to the Bundy family as ‘domestic terrorists’ after the Bundy home became a lightning rod for controversy involving unpaid taxes.

The situation began after patriarch Al Bundy refused to pay taxes on Big ‘Uns magazines as well as Bon-Bons and hair care products for wife Peggy.

“Those things are basic essentials, like food and water,” proclaimed Al. “You can’t tax hooters! It’s un-American!”

“We weren’t sure why people were going to the seashore.” said lead research scientist Phil Pockets. “Was it something encoded in our DNA? Did people feel socially obligated to build sand castles and sing songs while roasting marshmallows around a bonfire? Nobody knew.” Read the full story

High Unemployment Rate Leads to Rise in Suckers


Wash. D.C.- At the Bureau of Labor Statistics, economists announced the unemployment rate had not changed in any significant way, there was one sector of the economy that had grown unexpectedly.

“Scams are in,” says notable economist Tim Kane. “Although the numbers are hard to track, I think we have found ourselves a new, American, cottage industry. It’s good to see some of the unemployed take initiative to scam their fellow indigents, thus employimg them in the scamming sector of the economy.”

“With the high volume of patsies available and ease of scamming using the Internet, distress and overwhelming need were all that was needed to set this market off.”

Scams had been traditionally off shored to places like Nigeria, a country whose princes seem to always be held up by bureaucratic bank procedure.

Other offshore scamming tactics have been your relative in dire straits on a European vacation, poor south-east Asian farm girls who need financial assistance to make it to America to sleep in big comfy beds with big strong American man, or the old fashioned fake ransom in South America.

Ben Bernanke stated that this, “was exactly what this jobs market needed. I knew that the void created by the economic stagnation would only give way to another emerging market. It was only a matter of time American ingenuity would catch up to the need. The unemployed are a perfect source of dupes, fools, and saps that this fledgling industry relies on.”

“The unemployed are so desperate, their gullibility has reached an all time high,” explained John M. Galvin, acting commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“With such a high volume of potential suckers out there, some one was bound to take advantage of the opportunity. This makes the unemployment rate somewhat self regulated. It’ll all sort itself out once every one jumps on the scam band wagon. It’s the fastest growing sector of our economy today.”

The new American made scamming techniques include needing potential employees to submit a credit check to get social security numbers, “Free iPad” in craigslist jobs postings, and fake charitable organizations for those particularly hopeless stooges who believe karma is effecting their luck with job searches.

Nobel-Prize winner, Paul Krugman, tried simplifying this phenomenon in a lecture at Princeton. He stated that, “this isn’t the first time in history we’ve seen an emergence in scamming.

After most of the south was burnt to the ground after the Civil War, carpetbaggers moved in to take advantage of the overwhelming melancholy facing the destroyed infrastructure of the south. There isn’t too much different about today. There is a portion of the population who deem it necessary to take advantage of the dire needs of the unemployed.”

Although most of the revenue gained from scamming largely goes unaccounted for, Tim Kane reassures the American public that “Not all untaxable sources of revenue are a bad thing. GE payed 0% of billions in revenues, these scam artists are a relative drop in the bucket. The revenue from these scams are redistributed back in the economy when the perpetrators buy consumer goods and services, keeping local economies afloat.”

He went on to add, “Ponzi Schemes are scams that destroy our economy, particularly by victimizing job creators. Although I will say, these swindlers are well on their way to becoming the next generation of business leaders. It’s all just a matter of business models.”

The Prosperity Preschool


About this time last year, I found myself confronted with a daunting task: enrolling my son in a preschool. As all American parents know, it’s a choice upon which a child’s entire future can hinge, and requires diligence, focus, and tenacity.

I should say that I needed to enroll him in a new preschool, since, like any high-achieving three year-old, he was already attending school, and since, as with the previous schools, the current one wasn’t quite working out. Let’s say it was a disaster. Yes, the teachers were nice, the students too, but their values were utterly un-American. Read the full story

Federal Workforce May Have Topped 3-Million, or Maybe Not


Washington DC – GlossyNews.com – According to the most recent government data available, Uncle Sam’s civilian workforce may have topped 3 million as of March 1, 2010, says spokeswoman Audrey Slaberman.

“This is a truly remarkable achievement,” says Slaberman, “that over the course of the worst economic downturn in eighty years the federal bureaucracy continued to put on fat just as it did in the previous upturn.

Engraved Tax Bills Sent To British Taxpayers on Eve of Royal Wedding


Reports are coming out of England that part of the cost of throwing one of the most lavish weddings of the decade will be borne by British taxpayers. Unfortunately, with the economy pretty much still on a downward slide, this news could not have come at a worse time for the royal subjects.

To soften the blow, the Queen has come up with a plan that she hopes will take the sting out of bearing some of the burden for a wedding that is rumored to be overpriced and which most of them may only get to attend by watching it on the telly. Read the full story

Tax Refunds Revealed as Giant Ponzi Scheme


Washington, DC (GlossyNews) — Investigators have uncovered a multi-trillion dollar financial fraud so massive and widespread it has victimized nearly every household in America for decades.

According to investigators the so-called “Tax Refund Pyramid” employs many of the same techniques as other financial frauds, but on a much larger scale.

“On one level, this monumental scheme simply gives people back some of the money it already collected from them,” said one investigator. “But the parent organization’s finances are so shaky it has to resort to heavy borrowing and even print its own money just to do that.” Read the full story
