Accounting, while incredible painful, comes attached with two professors in possession of a wacky sense of humor.
Behold, an excerpt from one of my practice problems:
"Heber Smith, a college student in Utah, is investigating what he believes is a promising business opportunity. His idea is to manufacture and sell plastic jello molds in the form of the Salt Lake Temple. Heber has a tentative purchase commitment from a book and gift retail chain for 4,000 units over the first three months of initial operations."*
Plastic jello molds in the form of the Salt Lake Temple.**
Hold on. Wait. Just let me... one more time.
Plastic JELLO MOLDS SHAPED LIKE THE SALT LAKE TEMPLE.
YES. SO MUCH YES.
This is hysterical people. I love crap like this. Love it like a fat kid loves cake. I love it when people have the that wry sense of humor and add it into small details of an otherwise normal or boring situation Bless you Norm Nemrow for being a wack job. It's right up my alley.
*I just want you to know that I clicked back and forth between screens to type this up, it wouldn't let me copy and paste. THAT'S how important I thought it was.
