The Path to Public Accounting… In Super Mario Bros Form

As a child of the 80s (yeah yeah, I'm old), I can appreciate this. Can anyone explain why the chick accountant has a mustache and such a short skirt?

The only part of this I take issue with is the CPA exam part ("test," really?!). To say 50% roughly pass the exam isn't quite correct. I understand it's an infographic and has to keep it simple but you're talking about first-time pass rates, not overall. As anyone who has taken the exam 17 times can tell you, passing is passing. We don't really know how many tries it takes each candidate but there are those who stick it out as many tries as it takes. In fact, that's a lot of you.

Also, Mario, your princess is in another castle. Just sayin.
