Nelly, on the counsel of your Uncle Ned who’s convinced that if you don’t forward this email to 20 people you’ll have 20 years of bad luck, has decided that he shouldn’t have to pay taxes during the government shutdown. “If they’re not working, I shouldn’t have to pay taxes,” he told VH1.

“Being in the upper echelon of the tax bracket, the money I could be saving over these next couple of days could be very vital to my survival,” Nelly joked.

“Y’all keep bangin’,” he says to the lawmakers who are currently doing the bare minimum required to make it appear that they are working to come to a solution. Fortunately for Nelly, it doesn’t look like the government will be up and running again anytime soon.
