Three accountants were in the urinal performing their morning constitutional.  The first finishes and walks over to the sink to wash his hands.  He then proceeds to dry his hands carefully.  He uses paper towel after paper towel and ensures that every single spot of water on his hands is dried.   Turning to other two accountants, he says – “Chartered Accountants are trained to be extremely thorough.”
The second finishes his task at the urinal and he proceeds to wash his hands.  He uses a single paper and makes sure that he dries every drop of water from his hands using every available portion of the paper towel.  He turns and says – “Certified Accountants are not only trained be extremely thorough but also trained to be extremely efficient.”
The third accountant finishes and walks straight for the door.  “Management Accountants learn not to piss on their hands.”

Did you hear about the shy and retiring accountant?
The accountant is $1 million shy and hence is retiring.

A man lands on a hot air balloon in the middle of the desert, not knowing his whereabouts he looks around. Along walks another guy so the balloon man asks “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?” “Sure” says the other one “longitude 23’45”, latitude 34’12”. “Oh,” says the balloon man, “you must be accountant” “As a matter of fact, I am, how did you know?” “Well, you just gave me a very precise piece of worthless information.” ” I see” says the accountant “and you must be a consultant.” “You are right, how did you know?” “As long as you’re up in the air, you seem to know where you’re going, but as soon as you get down to earth, you’re lost.”

While waiting to board a plane in a small airport, a ticket agent said on the paging system: “Would the accountant who dropped his pants please return to the ticket counter.”  After a slight pause, the same voice added, “The pants were on a hanger!”

An auditor is having a hard time sleeping and goes to see his doctor.  “Doctor, I just can’t get sleep at night.”
“Have you tried counting sheep?”
“That’s the problem – I make a mistake and then spend many hours trying to find it.”
