Pearly gates

An accountant dies and goes to Heaven. He is met by St. Peter, who goes through the usual questionnaire.

“What sort of accountant are you?” asks St. Peter.

“Public practitioner,” is the reply.


He gives his name. St. Peter goes through some files and pulls one out.

“Oh, yes. We’ve been expecting you. You’ve reached your allotted span,” he says.

“How can that be?” says the accountant. “I’m too young to go. I’m only 48.”

“No, that’s impossible.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Well, we’ve been looking at your time sheets and the hours you’ve charged your clients. By our reckoning, you’re at least 93.”

Counting sheep 3

An auditor was examining the balance sheet of a mining company that had just bought a sheep station in the Pilbara area of Western Australia. The reason for the purchase was partly for the thousands of acres that the station covered and partly for the thousands of sheep that ranged over those thousands of acres. The auditor, being very diligent, noted that the value of the sheep formed a significant asset and, like all good auditors, knew that he would have to verify that asset.  He chartered an aircraft and flew up to the station.  The manager was at the airstrip to meet him.

“Hello,” he said. “I’m the auditor.  I’ve come to count the sheep.”
