But Career Services might be able to help you.

Prof [re filing joint tax returns]: Imagine Cindy says to Doug, “I know you don’t like me and don’t even know me, but if you marry me, you’ll save $3,000 on your taxes.” What do you think about that system?

Student: Does Cindy have a sister?

Prof: *laughs* It’s a hypo.

B, you totally weren't paying attention. Cindy made $300,000 or something a year, and wanted to marry Doug so she could save $3,000 on HER taxes. Making the Student a total male gold digger, and therefore a more fitting object of ridicule (or admiration).

Eh, whatever. That's not what the slide said. I clearly remember Cindy having an income of 0 and Doug raking in dough. You can't expect me to read AND listen carefully.
