NFL player takes a whiz on the IRS

Be prepared to love the Eagles’ Evan Mathis, even if you hate the Eagles:

Evan Mathis

Mathis was in Washington, D.C. Wednesday and wanted to send a message to the IRS. I hope his accountant’s good.

Hell, this past Eagle hater might have to become a fan now.

That’s all kinds of awesome.

The only good that came from my two years I was audited (IRS; bad, CA Franchise Tax Board; worse, and the CA Board of Equalization; out-right Gestapo) was the fulfillment of aspects of my sex life I would never have considered. After all of my years here in Northern California from the Midwest, I have never gotten around to trying anal sex, but the organizations above fixed all of that for me, and how!

Pass the Astroglide.

As Mr. Garcia said (while bent over?), “If you’ve got a warrant, I guess you’re coming Ihhhhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

Shaughnessy on May 16, 2013 at 10:05 AM

The rest of us need to join him. After all the place is a SEWER.

dogsoldier on May 16, 2013 at 10:13 AM

IRS to Mathis – get off our lawn!!!!!!

Mathis to IRS – hold on a sec, I’m takin’ a leak.

antipc on May 16, 2013 at 10:19 AM

Who will the IRS pay to kneecap Mathis?

Steve Eggleston on May 16, 2013 at 10:20 AM

The left, who celebrated the “Occupy” guy dumping on a police car, will have a stroke when they see this.

dirtseller on May 16, 2013 at 10:23 AM

Now Bounties in the NFL will not only be acceptable, but required for this guy.

dirtseller on May 16, 2013 at 10:23 AM

And the IRS was cleaner for having been peed on.

forest on May 16, 2013 at 10:27 AM

Eagles. That’s a Tea Party symbol. More punishment!

Shy Guy on May 16, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Maybe he was ordered to pay fines and penalties or else, and that’s all he had left.

E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!!1q1!!

Hoorah! You know, there’s an idea here……

We’ve had sit-ins, meet-ups, smoke-outs…. Maybe we should have a whip-it-out against the IRS? One day when the 47% of us who pay net taxes can help water the IRS’ lawns* all across the country. I think we’re going to need someone to supply the beer, though – lots of it. Do we let it stay local, or see if a national brew might want to sponsor?

* This is different than watering the tree of liberty. This can be an “along with” rather than “instead of”, if we want. I’m easy that way.

GWB on May 16, 2013 at 10:40 AM

And the Eagles will hold a press conference to announce his apology in 5, 4, 3, 2,…

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on May 16, 2013 at 10:55 AM

I’ve never heard of Mashable… but if Sam Laird’s ignorance is representative of their entire staff, I guess I’ve been fortunate up until now.

Just what precisely Mathis is so pissed off about — other than just like, taxes in general, man — isn’t quite clear.

Hey Sam, try watching shows other than TMZ and Inside Edition – you might have a better grasp of what’s going on in the world.

I don’t know if I’ve lost respect for you, or maybe gained some.

I’ll have to ponder that …….

listens2glenn on May 16, 2013 at 11:32 AM

P-E-A-G-L-E-S Peagles ! This could be the coolest O-line in football ! Have you seen Kelce’s beard ? It’s got it’s own Twitter feed !

birdhurd on May 16, 2013 at 11:34 AM

Eagles – “Desperado”

antipc on May 16, 2013 at 11:41 AM

Even with a brace on his leg… ‘piss on the IRS. That’s great.

RalphyBoy on May 16, 2013 at 11:54 AM

Eagles. That’s a Tea Party symbol. More punishment!

Shy Guy on May 16, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Good thing he doesn’t play for the Patriots or his life would have been one perpetual audit.

CJ on May 16, 2013 at 11:56 AM

……

We’ve had sit-ins, meet-ups, smoke-outs….

May I suggest peons (pee-ons) since that’s what the IRS thinks we are already…

Taking a page from the Obama playbook:

“It’s just a coincidence that Mr. Mathias was relieving himself in the vicinity of building signage. If you’ll note the trees in the background, it appears obvious that he selected the location because he wrongfully assumed the trees would provide privacy. Clearly, had Mr. Mathias known he could be seen publicly urinating, he would have selected a more private location (assuming he was not so distressed as to be unable to proceed to a more private location).”

Shaughnessy on May 16, 2013 at 10:05 AM

sounds absolutely romantic /

You still in Ca.?

DanMan on May 16, 2013 at 1:08 PM

LOL

Let’s hope the Eagles can do that to their divisional opponents this year as well.

Good Lt on May 16, 2013 at 1:36 PM

i hope he doesn’t apply for 501 c tax examption, it might take a while now.

..close the thread and go home folks, we have a winner!

Not so much. As much as I loathe the IRS, all this says to me is “yet another high paid athlete acting juvenile.”

How about actually doing something constructive instead of posting childish pictures?

But, then again, I suppose this is about the level of involvement we can expect from low information voters.

Shump on May 16, 2013 at 7:03 PM

Awesome!! Lets make it a trend
Go to your local IRS office, lift a leg and express your dislike for America’s KGB

james23 on May 16, 2013 at 9:03 PM

Childish.

Hurts our cause.
