 The best team corporate money can buy, knocks social services outta the park!

WHO: The Tax Dodgers will be celebrating yet another record-breaking season at the headquarters of their sponsors, GE, Verizon, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America.  The team will be joined by their hula-hooping cheerleading squad, The Loopholes, and together, they will be personally thanking everyday New Yorkers for paying their taxes for them. The team will even pay a special visit to Trump Tower with their official mascot, ‘Mitt’ in order to  help Donald Trump throw a birthday party for Anne Romney, where Mitt himself is expected to show. The team’s house band, the Occuponics, will help them sing  joyous renditions of ‘Take Me Out To The Tax Game.’

Team owner Alec Dickman, explains the team’s victorious mood: “On Tax Day, most Americans feel like they are making a making a difficult sacrifice for the greater good.  Not us. For the richest corporations in America, Tax Day is Pay Day.”
