Can Monkeys With Typewriters Write the U.S. Tax Code?

Posted on September 8, 2012 5:00 pm

It has recently been estimated that the current U.S. tax code is about four times longer than the roughly one million word complete works of William Shakespeare.

I suppose the real question is, if monkeys with typewriters given enough time can compose all of Shakespeare’s works, can they also come up with the tax code…or is that actually how it was written in the first place?

    If an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters sat down with an infinite amount of time — they’d throw the typewriters, pick then to pieces, crap on them. They’re monkeys. They’re never going to type anything. Might as well ask how long it would take a pile of rocks to type the tax code.

    (Many, many jackasses were involved in our current tax code, however.)

    Monkeys do Shakespeare? Probably.

    Monkeys do the tax code? No, because they can’t type numbers. And they also suck at 10-key.

    I don’t know that monkeys are malicious enough to have produced our tax code. Demons, perhaps.

    Are you sure about that Jim? Are you sure?

  5. zzyzx says:

    What!? You mean monkeys with typewriters DIDN’T write our tax code?

  6. Writer says:

    Frankly, I doubt that even monkeys are stupid enough to write that without slitting their wrists.
