There have been a lot of photos and videos posted on social media today of auditors holding balloons, wearing foam fingers, forcing awkward smiles, striking unnatural poses, and eating food of all kinds. Auditors sure know how to have fun, don’t they?

We’ve spent the afternoon looking at various tweets celebrating auditors, and while many were snoozers, we actually learned some stuff today:

1. Being #AuditorProud makes you talk like a buzzword bot.

2. Being #AuditorProud allows you to attend more baseball games than client meetings.

3. Being #AuditorProud makes you pretend like you have a tattoo.

4. Being #AuditorProud means wearing cowboy hats.

5. Being #AuditorProud means feigning interest in accounting standards.

6. Being #AuditorProud means always keeping your hands clean.

7. Being #AuditorProud makes you want to juggle apples.

8. Being #AuditorProud makes you want to sing like Lizzo in the breakroom.

9. Being #AuditorProud means putting together a list of songs you want played at your funeral.

10. Being #AuditorProud means thanking your firm’s auditors in the same boilerplate tweet as your predecessor’s.
