Editor's Note
Today we feature Part IV in our ongoing saga, Life in the Big Four. This light-hearted look at work (and play) experiences in a big accounting firm focuses on office pranks this week. While it's a long way from April 1, many of those of us in who live in the snow belt are already dreaming about spring, and what better way to imagine April Fool's Day than with some office pranks? If you have experienced any office pranks, or just happen to have some interesting ideas to share, be sure to click the Post Comments option at the end of the Big Four story and share your thoughts.

Best regards,
