    Comprehending Accountants - Take One

    Two accountancy students were walking across campus when one said,
    "Where
    did you get such a great bike?"

    The second accountant replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday
    minding
    my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw
    the
    bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you
    want."

    The first accountant nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes
    probably
    wouldn't have fit."


    Comprehending Accountants - Take Two

    An architect, an artist and an accountant were discussing whether it was
    better to spend time with the wife or a mistress.

    The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid
    foundation for an enduring relationship.

    The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the
    passion
    and mystery he found there.

    The accountant said, "I like both."

    "Both?"

    The accountant replied "Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they
    will
    each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go
    to
    the office and get some work done."

    To the optimist, the glass is half full.

    To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.

    "An Accountant and His Frog"

    An accountant was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him
    and
    said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess". He bent
    over,
    picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

    The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into
    a
    beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week".

    The accountant took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and
    returned
    it to the pocket.

    The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a
    princess,
    I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want."

    Again the accountant took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back
    into
    his pocket.

    Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a
    beautiful
    princess, that I'll stay with you and do anything you want. Why won't
    you
    kiss me?"

    The accountant said, "Look I'm an accountant. I don't have time for a
    girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."


    Comprehending Accountants - Take Five
    A businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of Divisional
    Manager.

    He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job.
    He
    asked each applicant the question, "What is two and two"?

    The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was "twenty-two."

    The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and
    showed
    the answer to be between 3.999999 and 4.000001.

    The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v.
    Commr of Stamp Duties (Qld), two and two was proven to be four.

    The last applicant was an accountant. The business man asked him, "How
    much
    is two and two?" The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the
    door, closed it then came back and sat down.

    He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, "How much do you want
    it
    to be?"

    He got the job.
