PolygamousRanchKid writes "Miss your tax deadline in the United States this weekend, and you might get a nasty letter at your door. In Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, you might get Riffee and the gang. They are transgender tax collectors — whose weapons include flamboyancy, surprise — and a little lipstick."

I have showed this article to friends, who are now planning to move to Pakistan, not pay their taxes, and have a really FUN time!

Transgender? (1)

I dunno, I get the feeling 'transgender' is a wrong term to use here. They look just plain old transvestites, transgender refers to deeper personality issues with gender relations.

As an aside, damn that is an odd way of trying to get people to pay their taxes.
