Juan Bobo:       

The Patron Saint of Taxpayers 

Juan Bobo is the patron saint of France. He is also the patron saint of taxpayers all over the world. The reason is quite simple.

In the year 242 A.D., when the French Tax Agency (FTA) taxed the last dime out of him, Juan Bobo paid a visit to the local FTA office.

“I have nothing left to give,” said Juan. “So here, take this.”       

Juan Bobo placed his head in front of the FTA man and walked out. From that very moment, in the third century A.D., Juan Bobo became the patron saint of France and of taxpayers around the world.
