    OK, OK It can’t always be accounting. Is management not at fault?

    Accounting is not at fault here. Accounting is only foretelling the upcoming doomsday.

    How can Petersen from Accounting have so much time to wander the streets? Doesn’t he have any books to cook?

    In “Dilbert,” the Accounting Department is filled with grouchy trolls. In society, they are the butt of jokes, stereotypically boring and gray, with oatmeal personalities. In physical terms, they could be considered the intestines of the body, collecting and churning data day by day. (Marketing people are an organ further down.)
    Arise, Accountants of the World! Accountants need to organize and rebel, as they did in the Monty Python movie, “The Meaning of Life.”

    I kinda feel sorry for accountants, they’re usually just the messengers who deliver the bad news.

    Of couse the Mayans were 100% correct. We’re about 20 days into the next baktun already. And in anothe 143,950 days or so (depending on exactly when the Maya calendar reset), we’ll get another chance to go through all that nonsense again.

    While we’re on such stories… a professional consultant is driving across Scotland, when he’s forced to stop and wait for a flock of sheep crossing the road. He gets out and strikes up a conversation with the shepherd, eventually making a small bet: the shepherd’s hip flask (full of fine single-malt, of course) if he can guess how many sheep are in the flock without counting. The shepherd takes him up on the bet, and the consultant says, “two hundred fifty.” “Amazing,” says the shepherd, reluctantly handing over the flast (after taking a wee nip). “But ye cannae simply take my whisky; ye must give me a chance to win it back. I bet I can tell you what you do for a living. If I’m wrong, I’ll fill the flask all the way up for you, if I’m right, you give it back.” The consultant thinks for a second, concludes there’s nothing about his attire or vehicle that would give him away, and takes the bet. Says the Scotsman, “Ye are a management consultant!” Amazed, the consultant asks how a simple shepherd could have figured this out. “Simple,” is the reply, “you drop in from nowhere, tell me something I already know, and charge me for it!”

    Have you read the book by Joel Bakan:
    The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power? I think it’s a must read by every citizen who wants to be informed of the forces at work in our lives.

    Accountants do get a bad rap, but remember, you can steal more with a pencil than with a gun !
