Ice cream fixes everything

Compensation Watch ’12: KPMG

UPDATED: KPMG Celebrates Summer With Ice Cream Packages For Loyal Servants

Really, KPMG? Buying folks off with ice cream?!

Free Ice Cream Outside the IRS Building Should Briefly Distract Any Protesters

This momentous occasion not only marks the end of the traditional return filing season but it is also marking the Blizzard’s 25th birthday. This might, just might, cajole some Tea Partiers to leave their homes as opposed to marching on the Internet (especially since there doesn’t appear to be a limit per taxpayer/accountant).

However! The window of opportunity is short and you’ll only have from noon to 1 pm to get your miniature cup of refined sugary goodness. One might think that since Doug Shulman might be anti-pizza that he also might have something against blended ice cream confections. But on the other hand, Warren Buffet didn’t get filthy rich by giving away crackalicious deserts for free now, did he?
