Ask the Accountant: 2016

I just thought I’d get this one out of the way now…Enjoy!

Is it just me or does it seem like 2016 was over before it began?

It’s true, 2016, seemed to be over before it began.

Why is that?

I’ll take the blame. One of my unspoken resolutions was to be more proactive in 2016 which caused a rip in the space-time continuum resulting in 2016 being over in a flash. Sorry about that.

Though I’d like to know who won the presidential election, I’m more curious about whether you are still listening to Justin Bieber or not?

I am happy to say that I have not listened to any more Justin Bieber –  I’ve moved on to Clay Aiken.

Really?

No comment

So who did win the presidential election?

In a surprise move, President Obama revoked the two-term law paving the wave for FDR to win his record 5th term as president of the United States of America. Not surprising is the fact that Bernie Sanders, a childhood friend of Franklin is the Vice President.

Isn’t Franklin D. Roosevelt dead?

Yes, but it never stopped Reagan did it?

So who came in second in the presidential election?

Not surprisingly it wasn’t Donald Trump but instead was the Nixon/Cheney ticket.

Isn’t Richard Nixon dead?

We all thought that he was but it wasn’t until a hunting trip with Dick Cheney that Richard M. Nixon ultimately met his maker. On the positive side, Cheney was finally able to claim that he bagged a Donkey that day.

Outside of the presidential election, the most important questions is who won the Super Bowl this year?

Not surprisingly the Chicago Cardinals won the Super Bowl over the New England Deflaters.

Chicago Cardinals? Aren’t they the Arizona Cardinals now?

They were but, out of desperation to have a championship football team in Chicago, President Obama extradited the Cardinals back to Chicago and sent the Bears to Syria as a way to break the tension in their long-lasting civil war.

Who won the College Football Championship?

The Chicago Cardinals

How did that happen?

Not sure but…Thanks Obama!

What else happened in the year 2016?

Here are some of the other highlights:

  1. I wrote a Best Selling Novel
  2. Lost 468 pounds
  3. Blocked Justin Bieber tunes from all of my music apps

Which one of those isn’t a joke?

Take your pick

Speaking of jokes, what happened to Donald Trump anyway?

While it wasn’t widely reported, it turned out that The Don was never actually running for president but instead thought he was competing in the Mr. Universe contest. Unfortunately not even Steve Harvey was capable of giving the victory to Mr. Trump.

Did Steve Harvey have a better year in 2016?

Better in the sense that his name isn’t Bill Cosby.

What was the biggest story of the year?

The biggest story of 2016 was, without a doubt, the fact that the recently reunited Guns n Roses nearly made it through the first song of their first show before breaking up again.

Given the opportunity, what would you have done differently in 2016?

I would have chosen to write something a little more creative as my first blog post of the year.
