Yard sale, huh? Megan wants me to de-clutter. YARD SALE. How much for the fish lamp? You wanna buy my fish lamp? I won't sell it for less than $20! Outrageous. I'll give you ten. Well … Okay. To a good home. Actually, I don’t want it. Well, then, just adopt it. No. I'll pay you to take it. Twenty dollars. Fine. It's yours. Just take good care of it. I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT! I WANT IT BACK!! Twenty more dollars.
Hey Hawthorne, can you help me do my taxes? You're the finance guru. Okay. How much money did you make last year? 37 dollars. Write that down here. Now pick a number between one and ten. Three. Divide 37 by 3 and that's your tax. Did you eat an accountant last year? Yes. Take a $10 credit. Now roll these dice. Seven! Move forward seven spaces. What's it say? "Pay Luxury Tax. $75." Okay, next, throw your tax form up in the air. If it lands face down, you don't have to pay anything. YES! That's a little trick Warren Buffett uses.
