Enter The Eternal SPLOST Boy

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 3:06 pm

In the local news has been quite a bit of debate about the renewal of a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or SPLOST. This seems to be primarily a Georgia thing, judging from the Google results for that acronym; basically, as the name suggests, it’s an extra 1% sales tax, added on to the state sales tax, that’s used to fund county government projects.

But that’s not the point I’m trying to make. No, the point I’m trying to make is that “SPLOST” would be an excellent comic-book sound effect. It’s like the sound made by a watermelon falling fifty feet to the ground, or something along those lines.

Yes, yes, I know, I’m way too easily amused…
