It’s tax day! Feeling powerless? It’s no wonder. In the words of Albert Einstein, certainly no mathematical slouch, “the hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax.”
Hardly! How about more like a dinner at In-n-Out burgers, a good movie, or some new tires for the car. Better yet, borrow from the coupon-clipping theme of the past, and go for a snip-n-save.
You worked hard, you saved hard, and you just missed “March Dadness” when your buddies got their vasectomies last month. Now’s your chance. Treat yourself to a 9-minute no-scalpel vasectomy and reap the economic rewards. Since you’re in tax mode, let’s break it down. Here is a simple cost-benefit analysis of getting your wings clipped compared to not having the nut-cut.
Vasectomy No Vasectomy
- Value (to partner) Priceless Worthless
- Rug rats ++ (++++++)2
- Contraception “No worries” “Did you pull out in time?”
- Freedom Unbridled Shackled
Putting aside the economics, there are other reasons for a vasectomy straight from the horse’s mouth:
“I have a penis without a conscience”
“I always ride bareback now.”
“My genes are not that great.”
“My first time for manscaping.”
“A whole day of Blockbuster movies!”
“My one chance to have bigger balls.”
“I needed a good third-hand tale.”
Whether it’s amortization, appreciation, bubble or bust, a vasectomy is one of the few gifts that, in simple economics, keeps on giving.
