Friday Funnies goes fiscal

An accountant is someone who solves a problem you never knew you had, in a way you don’t understand and for a fee you can’t afford. For Friday Funnies today, we’ve cracked open the classic files on accountants, giving you the best jokes to make fun of our financially focused friends.


When does a person decide to become an accountant?
When he realises he doesn’t have the charisma to succeed as an undertaker.


A guy in a bar leans over to the man next to him and says, “Want to hear an accountant joke?”
The man next to him replies, “Well, before you tell that joke, you should know that I’m 190 centimetres tall and weigh 100 kilograms, and I’m an accountant. And the guy sitting next to me is 193 centimetres and 110 kilograms and he’s an accountant. Now, do you still want to tell that joke?”
The first guy says, “No thanks, I don’t want to have to explain it twice.”


What’s the difference between sperm and an accountant?
The sperm has a one in 250,000 chance of becoming human.


A patient returns to her doctor’s office to receive some test results. Her doctor says, “I have some very bad news, you have six months to live.”
Shaken, the patient asks, “Doctor, what should I do?”
The doctor replies, “Marry an accountant.”
“Will that make me live longer?” asks the patient.
“No,” said the doctor, “but it will seem longer.”


What do accountants do when they are constipated?
They get a pencil and work it out.


What’s the difference between an accountant and a lawyer?
The accountant knows he’s boring.


An accountancy student asks a partner to explain ethics in accountancy. The partner thinks for a moment and relates the following.
“Ms Murray, an elderly client of ours, came to see me last week and paid me $1000 in cash. As she left, I counted the notes and they came to $1100.”
The student replied, “I see. So the ethics question is do I tell the client?”
“Nope! The question is do I tell my partner.”


Why are accountants such good lovers?
Because they’re great with figures.


Why did the accountant stare at his glass of orange juice for three hours?

Because on the box it said ‘concentrate’.


Have you heard the joke about the interesting accountant? No? We haven’t either.
