What a picture is worth…15, apparently

This picture comes from my grandfather, and was taken in an Alabama Walmart at the checkout lane:


First, I imagine the Walmart in Alabama must be the closest we come in this country to the third world (for more on this go here). Second, since no one has a third hand to count on, this is unlikely to be helpful, as the world of numbers must stop at ten. And third, if this is what has to be done for people who are just buying groceries, how long is it until tax code is written this way? (And how great would that be: “Your marginal tax rate is THIS MANY!”)
