# 86 Accountants laugh at them

Accountants have sense of humour – shock….lawyers make them laugh
Paul Brennan, legal cartoon, accountantAfter years, of receiving polite applause or even stunned silence to mark the end of my legal presentations, I was surprised to receive the following testimonial:
“From our members feedback - Interactive, informative, interesting, dynamic, entertaining, enthusiastic, started at 1450AD and kept moving, no slides, kept us awake and felt dizzy - it makes it difficult to believe that this was a presentation on Intellectual Property law” 
Institute of Chartered Accountants
If I had to put this positive feedback down to any one thing I would say it was - free grog.  As in the early days of the Navy, accountants are press ganged into attending continuing legal education and given free alcohol to make it bearable.    On the evening of my legal presentation, no one fell out of the rigging but such was the joyous atmosphere, I think that they are making a big mistake conducting their accountancy practices sober.
The biggest laugh of the evening was when I showed them my cash flow forecast.

  1. Hi! I come from the Polish, the average country in Europe. Do you know anything about Polish? If you do not invite you to my blog:) Cheers!

    1. Thank you I have met many Polish people over the years, they are a lot of fun.

  2. Surely, you can draft contracts on your own, you can survive gruesome negotiations with your business clients, you can settle a marital dispute among yourselves but when the need to come to court arises, you need to get a lawyer.Holm Law Group San Diego

  3. Thank you Mark. The modern desire for feedback can be overrated. All the best
