Mensa Cartoon

Mensa is the international high IQ society whose membership is limited to those who score in the top 2% on a standard intelligence test. One hundred ten thousand men, women and children worldwide call themselves Mensans with 57,000+ of these residing in the United States. This cartoon wrote itself one April about 30 years ago as I struggled to do my taxes. Mensa, by the way, is Latin for "table," the idea being that members would gather around a table to discuss, and perhaps solve, the problems of the world. Alas, that fine organization notwithstanding, we are still all confronted with the same problem every April 15th: the IRS.
