HR Strange But True!
November 05, 2003

Hoping to put the word out that accountants aren't boring after all, the state society for certified public accountants (CPAs) in Louisiana has come out with a new calendar. It stars accountants who engage in such spare-time pursuits as whitewater rafting and experimental plane flying.

Meet Brandy Ivy-- and her pet tarantula, Pookie. And here comes Vance Bailes, atop his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, clad in a black leather jacket.

"We are definitely not the dull, humorless bean counters so many stereotypes and office jokes have made us out to be," said another accountant/thrill seeker, Tommie Vassel. "Outside the office, we're intriguing people with a wide variety of interests and hobbies who love to have a good time."

Proceeds from sales of the calendar, titled "All on Account of Fun," will benefit the accounting society's scholarship foundation.
