Jun 22 Word of the Day
Taken in the contest of the song Baby's Got Back by Sir-Mix-Alot he is referring to Florence Griffith Joyner a track athlete in the 1988 Olympics who defiantly fits all the other descriptions of what he likes in women mentioned in that song.

Another necessary evil perpetrated by the government, which is itself a necessary evil. While many people disagree over just how much taxes they need to pay, it is stunningly obvious that we need to pay some taxes. Running the country, after all, isn't a part-time job.

1: I'm a Democrat! I want higher taxes!
2: I'm a Republican! I want lower taxes!
3: I'm an Urban Dictionarian! I want no taxes!

A form of stealing made to sound good by the fact that a "majority" voted.
Paul didn't want to give up any more of his hard earned money but since Peter belonged to the majority he was able to get taxes raised.
