You Can’t Avoid Them: Death and Taxes

Caption: Death and Taxes

“Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes.”

 Chato’s Mental Health Humor Cartoon notes: While I was rushing to the post office today on April 15th to get my stuff  stamped.  Sending it Certified U.S. Mail with Return Receipt Requested.  Something recommended that I should do, so I did, and it cost me and extra $6.99.  Not sure If can deduct that next year?

Anyway, while I was doing a zillion things in my mind – I started to to think how funny it would be to see “Death” in line at the post office mailing tax returns. That is when I quickly reached for some paper to write down the idea…If i don’t record/ write it /draw/ or doodle it–i will forget… And move on to the next creative process.

The end cartoon is the mental health humor toon above with “Death” in line at the USPS.  Did you notice his envelope’s return address?

Please don’t psychoanalyze me about drawing dark humor using “Death”! I already have a diagnosis.  🙂
