Taxman in sense of humour shock

There's a great letter from the Inland Revenue to a digruntled taxpayer reproduced on the Taxpayer's Alliance blog. This has probably been doing the rounds for months but it's the first time I've come across it. A sample:
[Y]our frustration at our adding to the "endless stream of crapulent whining and panhandling vomited daily through the letterbox on to the doormat" has been noted. However, whilst I have naturally not seen the other letters to which you refer I would cautiously suggest that their being from "pauper councils, Lombardy pirate banking houses and pissant gas-mongerers" might indicate that your decision to "file them next to the toilet in case of emergencies" is at best a little ill-advised.
Read the whole thing.
