Accountants are an integral part of the financial system, as the holders of debits and credits, cashflow and balance sheets.
Known as boring folks:
A woman went to the doctor, who broke her the dreadful news that she only had six months left to live.
"That's terrible doctor, what should I do?" she pleaded.
"I suggest you marry an accountant", he replied.
"Why? Will that make me live longer?" she asked.
"No ... it will just seem a lot longer."
They're not always boring though:
"My company is looking for an accountant."
"I thought you hired one last week?"
"That's the one we're looking for!"
