Cryptic Accounting

I waste a lot of time on the internet. Alternatively, I discover a lot of weird and interesting things on the internet.

Many of these things have nothing to do with the internet, ergo, I can't in good conscience share them with you because it doesn't exactly fall within my job description. However, when something weird and interesting that does relate to accounting comes my way, I get pretty excited.

Which is why I'm so thrilled to share this blog that automatically mashes accounting rules with H.P. Lovecraft's work with you. It is my favorite.

While accounting rules and Lovecraft frighten readers on their own with little effort, together the prose takes on a whole new level of horror. It's a perfect match, really.

Go enjoy some Dark Accounting, but hopefully your workweek is far less macabre.
