    The heavy burden imposed by a patchwork of governments each with its hand out is sorting out what is and is not taxable -- food is exempt in some places, clothing is exempt in some places, etc; and the exemptions are never as simple as that (e.g. Is a jar of honey "food"? Maybe, maybe not...). The business manager has to sort that out on his own, and if he gives the computer the wrong answer it's garbage in, garbage out.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
