Where no tax agency has gone before

I don't know if this news item belongs here or in the Fan Productions area, but the IRS is in hot water for (among other things) spending $50,000 for videos, including a Trek parody. Here it is:

Somewhat old news this.

But whilst it might be a waste of US tax payers money, look at this way it just goes to show the impact ST has.

It's certainly more imaginative than the insipid line dancing video that just recently came out, but still an abhorrent waste of time and tax dollars.

Maybe they should have done a parody of Firefly.

The IRS could have been the evil inner worlds (who of course only want to help everyone) and Captain Mel could be the brave brown coat Tea Party patriot/rebel.

They could probably do a whole season on Mel's efforts to get tax excempt status.

They should've been Ferengi. Then the parody would be complete.

People who throw money around and have big expensive partys are often regarded as "cool."
