As handsomely-remunerated CEO of SpinCorp, Kevin Spin needs good – but legitimate [after all, he is an elected representative of the people!], professional advice on minimizing his personal tax liability. This involves frequent temporary absences from his native shore to visit remote, sparsely-populated groups of islands set in sparkling, silvery seas with romantic sunsets and long, cool cocktails.
On such trips – described by his office as “going offshore”, Senator Spin sometimes manages to combine business with just a smidgeon of pleasure. And here – dear readers, we managed to capture Mr Spin “between meetings” as he rushed from his power lunch with the island’s movers and shakers to catch a brief offshore wave. A snatched photo for The Dependent before hitting the waves in search of his daily tube ride; today – sadly, the Senator mistimed his pop-up and – three seconds later, it was all over.
But what about the Great White sharks that have been striking fear into the hearts of the surfing communities worldwide of late, I hear you – the humble, tax-paying, working reader, ask? “No, the Great Whites hold no fear for a man of my experience, skill and cunning. It’s only those Wall Street dudes over there on the 18th that really give me the shivers!”, remarked the hard-working Senator as the cocktail waitress delivered his second Surfer on Acid.
