Are You A Super Genius To Your Own Detriment?

Updated: Oct 6


Today I saw a financial adviser preview of the documentary "The Tax Train is Coming" by David McKnight. (And it's VERY GOOD!) In it, there were clips of David McKnight speaking about a Warner Brothers "Roadrunner and Coyote" clip about "the shed and the freight train."


Now, this clip is obviously hilarious... but I'd like to translate it for you for today:

- Bugs Bunny (possibly represents the Government? The IRS? Other well-meaning advisers recommending that you postpone your taxes for a tax-break this year?) is driving the tractor to move the shed onto the tracks.

- Wiley E. Coyote (that's you and me) is counting up his carrots believing he's a "super genius" with how much he has (I think they're sticks of dynamite).

- The train... is the fiscal problem of our federal government and the impending tax situation.

- Once it's too late, Wiley E. Coyote (you and me) simply closes the shade to ignore what's immediately about to happen.
