Accountants are pussies who bend to the will of banks and politicians.

Mark to market, anyone?

If anyone is going to say that, it will be Lynn Turner.

Better go get my Fuck Math t-shirt drycleaned.

Does this mean you are suggesting the hashtag #accountantsarepussies ? That really cuts down on my available characters.

Goldman Sachs turned accountants into life guards on an ocean beach filled with sharks.

BigMoney now moves around virtually as BigData. Account's methods are as out as date as a 1970 desktop calculator.

RIP CPA profession (learn to count cards in Vegas).
