Let’s Play a Game of Accountant/Not an Accountant!

With Caleb running around in DC trying to rub elbows with legit tax dorks today, we need something fun around here. So let's play a game of accountant/not an accountant, shall we?

Here's how it works. I'm going to give you a picture, not tell you who it is, and you guess if they are an accountant or not an accountant then just click through to the next page for the answer. Easy enough, right? I'd ask you not to cheat by using Google but who gives a crap? I know I don't.

Let's do this!

Accountant or not an accountant?

 

Accountant

George Wendt is not a real accountant but his character on Cheers – Hillary Norman "Norm" Peterson – was alleged to be. Believable, actually, the guy was always at the bar.

Technically not an accountant, but…

Failed 2012 VP candidate Paul Ryan is not a real accountant, but he is – or was – America's Accountant, at least according to TIME. Fun fact: he was also voted Biggest Brown-Noser in high school.

 

 

Accountant… sort of

Miss J Alexander – best known for his work on America's Next Top Model – went to school to be an accountant but quickly abandoned the idea "after realizing the job was too confining." You don't say.

Freakish Gonzaga grad Kelly Olynyk graduated with an accounting degree last December but is skipping his senior season to hit the NBA draft.

Troubled Buckwild "star" Salwa Amin is currently in jail for possession with intent to sell but apparently she does hold an accounting degree. Guess she won't be practicing any time soon.

 

Accountant

Too easy.

Not an accountant

Momager, attention whore and the woman we have to blame for unleashing Kim Kardashian's ass on the world, Kris Jenner is most definitely NOT an accountant. As for the lovely photobomber in the photo, we have no idea.

 

On that note, we're sufficiently grossed out. Let's do this again sometime, eh?
