Sitting in a compartment on a train were the Tooth fairy, an expensive Accountant and a cheap Accountant. On a table between them was placed a briefcase full of money.

Suddenly the train entered a tunnel and everything went dark. When the train exited the tunnel and the light returned, the briefcase was gone. Who took the briefcase?...

Well, it's obvious really. It had to be the expensive Accountant as there's no such thing as the Tooth fairy or a cheap Accountant!


The doctor comes to see his heart transplant patient.
"This is good news. It is very unusual, but we have two donors to choose from for your new heart."
The patient is pleased. She asks, "What were their jobs?"
"One was a Teacher and the other was an Accountant."
"I'll take the Accountant's heart," says the patient. "I want one that hasn't been used."
