Notorious I.R.S.?

Vanilla Ice's Taxing Raps

2/13/2007 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So, what rhymes with "1099" and "itemized deductions?" We know who would know -- Vanilla Ice, of course. Vanilla who?

Those crazy tax software pros at Intuit have gotten the most infamously un-entertaining white boy of all -- Vanilla Ice -- to shill for them during tax season. In a gloriously nonsensical (and possibly brilliant) promotion, the company recruited Vanilla (also known as Rob Van Winkle) to help pimp its TurboTax software in a contest they're calling The Tax Rap.

Civilians can post their own rhymes about W-2s and Schedule Bs to Former "Surreal Life"-er Mr. Ice will judge the entries and announce a $25,000 winner on tax day, April 15, but for now he's graced us with his own tax-related masterpiece. Also, if we didn't before, we now know exactly where Kevin Federline got his artistic inspiration.

Jake, your posting is way too long and boring to keep an audience's attention. Anyway, we know that 51% of women are single because that's the "damn ugly" half!

He's Boring now    

I dont think I'll be using their Tax Software this year...their spokesman is about as phony as one could get when accuracy and due diligence should be the theme.

Here's a ryhme you can use Vanilla for the contest you are judging:

Ice Ice baby
Dont get your tax right
Be Ready for a fight
Or you'll be
On Ice Ice baby

Sorry but Kevin Federline looks dumb with his raps. Vanilla Ice has been around since 1990, and even though he's had ups and downs, at least he's still performing. I still listen to his old albums to this day! I like that he's taking part in this TurboTax software. Remember, Ice was known for his catchy raps, and anybody could take part in writing a unique rap about taxes.

We, are not amused.    

So we should be down on someone trying to earn an honest dollar?
At least he's not whoring around.
I say good for him! Nothing wrong with trying to make an honest buck, he never pretended to be something that he wasn't.
