HUMOR CORNER

You May Be Taking Accounting To Seriously if - You cannot
wait to do your own tax return. You think the GAP store at
the mall sells accounting standards. You cheer at the Oscars when they announce the accounting firm in charge of the envelopes. You read film credits to identify the name of the Production Accountant. You think that leaving at 5 o'clock is a half-day. You use the term "value added" with a straight face.
