Accountants of Reddit Take Instagrammer to Karma Court Over Meme Theft

Inb4 one of y’all thinks to comment “geez, Adrienne, slow news day?” let me remind you that we write about accounting; every day is a slow news day. So unless one of y’all plan to embezzle something, let it go, that comment doesn’t hurt me. In the last year or so, /r/accounting has made the […]

Unfounded Rumor of the Day: Porn Floating Around PwC’s Internal Instant Messaging Service

Have you ever trash talked in IM at work? Have you ever been paranoid enough about it that you asked Reddit if they have ever trash talked in IM and gotten in trouble for it? This guy did. "I feel like I have no filter when I get on sametime," he said. Surely you all […]

Actually, the question our philosopher pal posted was a bit more hostile than the question in the headline above.

ESPN “Bitcoin Sign Guy” Raises Over $22k, Now Needs Tax Advice

Let no one deter you from flying a wacky sign, as this guy learned over the weekend: Here's the deal: Yesterday on ESPN's "College GameDay" (an ESPN college football show that's filmed at a different college campus each week) some student held the above sign that has both the Bitcoin logo and a QR code.

Marine Struggling With the Transition From Military Fist Fights To Big 4 Butt-Kissing

This guy on Reddit is a tad upset (not to mention a bit preoccupied with fellatio as it pertains to earning brownie points in public accounting): I hate the corporate accounting world, and small private firms suck too. I don't want to get too into depth. Just a long rant and hoping someone can offer […]
