(Newser) – Remember the IRS training videos that parodied, or tried to parody, Star Trek and Gilligan's Island? Well, the House Ways and Means Committee has found another, this one a takeoff of Donald Trump and The Apprentice, reports CNN. "Another day, another example of abuse and waste at the IRS, says Rep. Charles Boustany. This one cost $10,000, and the agency swears it's not making these kinds of videos anymore. The sad thing is that it's not even good in a bad, campy way. "It is truly awful," writes Joe Coscarelli at Daily Intel.

The IRS works with so many billions of dollars that I guess it's people forget how $10,000 is not chump change to the average person in the US. I voted "ridiculous" for this one. I wish I could do it more than once.
