Happy Friday! It is time for my annual public service announcement to remind you that time is running out to file your 2016 tax return. While you are getting all those numbers lines up, this is a perfect opportunity to poke a little fun at the accountants out there, myself included.
How does an accountant stay out of debt? He learns to act his/her wage.
What’s grey and not there? An accountant on vacation.
How do accountants make a bold fashion statement? Wear their dark grey socks instead of the light grey.
Just remember that It’s accrual world out there so be audit you can be!
Is it true that homeless accountants live in tax shelters?
What do you call an accountant without a spreadsheet? Lost.
How can you tell it an introverted accountant from an extroverted accountant? An introverted accountant looks at his shoes when he talks to you while an extroverted accountant looks at your shoes while he’s talking to you.
Did you hear the joke about the extremely charismatic and interesting accountant? I haven’t either.
If you read your son the story of Cinderella and when you get to the part where the pumpkin turns into a golden carriage, he asks you “Daddy, is that ordinary income or a capital gain?” He just might grow up to be an accountant.
A woman goes to the doctor and is told that she only has 6 months left to live.
Quite alarmed, the woman asks the doctor, “What shall I do?!”
“If I were you, I would marry an accountant,” suggested the doctor.
“And that will make me live longer? asked the woman.
“It won’t make you live any longer,” replied the doctor. “But it will undoubtedly be the longest six months of your life.”
