Short Link to this Quote:
Paula Poundstone is making a joke about the phrase “the wages of sin are death.” She’s saying that while the Bible says the consequences of sinning are death, in reality after taxes are deducted from any earnings from sinful acts, the feeling one is left with is not death but just a tired, worn-out feeling.
So she’s poking fun at how taxes reduce the impact or severity of consequences. The quote suggests that through the lens of taxation, the punishment for sinning is significantly lessened, turning something as serious as “death” into just feeling tired or drained.
