Here’s a Photo of AICPA CEO Barry Melancon Having the Most Interesting Conversation of His Life

I have no idea what AICPA CEO, President and street taco eating champion Barry Melancon is thinking in the above photo, but he couldn’t be more rapt with what this woman has to say. The caption from the Wyoming Society of CPAs website reads: “Break-time Alexandra Wilkinson explaining a case to Barry Melancon.” And sure, that’s probably accurate, but personally, I see a more complex picture.

Alexandra Wilkinson appears to be juggling imaginary grapefruits or flaming torches or live chihuahuas or something and Barry is absolutely spellbound. He had no idea that CPAs in Wyoming could be this fascinating or have clients that sell grapefruits or torches or chihuahuas.

Or, on the other hand, is he cringing? Is she regaling him with a tale of a cowboy caught between a bull and a barbed wire fence? Is he looking thoughtful and sage but actually thinking, “I’m such a remarkable listener. I really should recognized by an official body for my exceptional listening skills. Maybe the AICPA should create a listening certification?”

I can’t quite tell, but Adrienne and I both agree that it’s a hilarious photo and that it needed to be shared. If you can write a better caption than the Wyoming Society’s website then you should try, but keep it clean.
