Dave Barry is known for his satirical humor. In this quote, he is jokingly referring to how tedious and frustrating the process of doing taxes can be for many Americans.

By saying to “stab yourself in the aorta”, he is using hyperbole to emphasize just how unpleasant gathering receipts and filling out tax forms feels to some.

The best interpretation is that he is using sarcasm and exaggeration for comedic effect to poke fun at the annual burden of completing one’s income taxes.
