You may think that accountancy is the least likely profession to make you famous. But accountants don’t become accountants because they want to be a celebrity. Accountants become accountants because they are intelligent and conscientious people, and sometimes their knowledge-ability lends itself to other capabilities, allowing them to be more than just number crunchers.
Accountants are not only calculating and scrupulous, but that intelligence allows them to be ingenious and creative as well. Did you know that Bubblegum as we know it was invented by an accountant? That’s right, Walter Diemer may have looked and acted like any regular accountant, but he was intuitive and intelligent, and if it was not for his wit and creativity, we would live in a sad world without any Double Bubble.
The face of a man without a pink blob to chew on.
Although every elementary school teacher everywhere would have been happy to live in a world where they didn’t have to scrap pink goo off the underside of every table and desk, we now live in a substantially more delicious and chewy world thanks to the genius of an accountant.
