Tax Day March W-2 Hats Fail To Catch On Like Pussy Hats

W2hatLOS ANGELES, CA —  Today was the much anticipated Tax Day March in Los Angeles and other cities around the country. People took to the streets to demand that Trump release his tax returns. The march failed to have the kind of marketability of the women’s protest, specifically in its choice of symbolic head wear.

Protester, Martha Waters, made her own hat the night before the protest. “Ya I basically just stapled my W-2 to a baseball cap. It keeps  blowing away”. Directly after making this statement, Waters hit a nearby protestor in the eye with her W-2 hat. There have been no updates on the condition of that protester.

Pussyhats were seen in the profile picture of liberals everywhere, however, W-2 hats, not as much. Monica Jones who marked herself “interested” in the Tax Day March on Facebook, but didn’t go, commented, “I already had the profile picture from the women’s march. I didn’t really want to go through all the hassle of making a new hat”. She added that while she does want to see Trump’s taxes, she had a spin class that she really couldn’t miss again. Analysts have suggested that the behavior of people like Monica might be because “taxes are just less exciting than women”.

Daily Ruin reached out to the organizers of the event to ask why so little thought was put into hats. Philip Rodgers, a lead organizer, had this to say, “Before the women’s march we were angry. We wanted to come up with a symbol that would show Trump how many people were standing against him. Something that everyone could make at home”. Reportedly several weeks were spent developing the now famous “pussy hat”. Rodger added this about the development of the W-2 hats, “Trump’s been President for almost three months now. Everyday is terrifying. We’re just so tired. We figured why not just staple some forms to a hat. Fuck it”.

When we reached out to the Trump administration for comment about today’s protest they stated “What protest? Have you heard about what North Korea did? Isn’t that crazy? Why are people still talking about Trump’s taxes. Look over here. Look at North Korea”.
