Now this was funny! Love to see more of this!There was an expert accountant who was well versed in game theory. He heard that his intelligent niece, who was five years old, always took a 50p piece, when a choice between a 50p piece and a pound coin was offered to her.
He went to see his niece and offered her just such a choice. She took the 50p and said
"Thank you Uncle".
The accountant tried to explain to his niece
"You must understand, a pound coin is twice as valuable as a 50p piece, so you should always choose the pound coin."
The niece replied
"Uncle, but then people will not offer me any money."
The above joke was rendered as a very entertaining TV commercial about a year ago: h t t p : / / vimeo.com/21474336... always took a 50p piece, when a choice between a 50p piece and a pound coin was offered to her...
My wife absolutely cracked up at this!Marry An Accountant
A patient was at her doctor's office after undergoing a complete physical exam. The doctor said, "I have some very grave news for you. You only have six months to live."
The patient asked, "Oh doctor, what should I do?"
The doctor replied, "Marry an accountant."
"Will that make me live longer?" asked the patient.
"No," said the doctor, "but it will SEEM longer."
