I recently became a CPA in the state of Nevada. By CPA, I’m referring to Certified Public Accountant. Although this is a widely recognized acronym in the United States, Wikipedia lists many other uses of it throughout the world.
The CPA acronym is also often used to poke fun at number crunchers in many variations. Here are a few of the best I’ve heard:
- Cheapest Price Available
- Copy, Paste, and Annotate
- Can’t Produce Anything
- Constantly Proposing Audits
- Couldn’t Pass Again (referring to the CPA exam, of course)
I claim that none of the above are applicable to me, but I refuse to take the CPA exam again just to prove it.
If you have a hilarious CPA acronym to share, please leave a comment. A hard-working accountant like me needs a burst of uncontrollable laughter once in a while.
