Gov't Scientists Given Grant To Study Rainbows

'If There Are Pots of Gold To Tax, We Are On It'


(SNN) Using the rationale that “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”, Revenue Canada has embarked on a bold scheme for increasing their coffers without riling up taxpayers.

“Stories of pots of gold at the end of the rainbow have existed for… uh… a really long time,” explained Hubert Einstein, grandson of famous physicist, Professor Plum- Whit der Candlestick. “So we have received a grant from the Revenue Minister to establish if there is any scientific basis for these gold-filled pots. If there is, I am sure the department will see this as a whole new revenue stream.”

Penny Nichols, spokesman for Minister of National Revenue, Gail Shea, revealed this initiative was the type of “out of the box” thinking that is being instilled within the department to create greater wealth for the country without having to tax people earning what an average MP does.

“There was some pushback in the CPC caucus,” admitted Nichols. “Of course, many of the members don’t actually believe in science.”
