Be Careful What You Ask For

More News of the Weird:

In December, a self-employed market analyst in Chimacum, Wash., requested from the Internal Revenue Service a copy of the 2003 Form 1040 and instructions so he could revise an old tax return. Three weeks later, he received instead two shipments totaling 48, 000 copies of 2005 Form 1040 and instructions.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just download it from the IRS web site?
