Humor para economistas y contables

5 chistes sobre economistas y contables

Alguien dijo que reĂ­rse de uno mismo es un claro indicio de inteligencia, que nos hace mĂĄs tolerantes, agradables a los demĂĄs y mĂĄs felices. No sĂ© si serĂĄ cierto. De hecho, el personaje que pronunciĂł estas palabras no era ningĂșn encanto y llevaba alguna copa de mĂĄs (disculpa, Nohay, pero es la verdad y alguien tenĂ­a que decirlo)… Entre sorbo y sorbo evocaba su viaje a Nueva York y la gente variopinta que habĂ­a conocido en el distrito financiero de Wall Street. Durante su periplo extrajo no pocas conclusiones en forma de chistes, que le sirvieron para publicar el libro Teo-rĂ­a de los Mercados. AquĂ­ podĂ©is ver un retrato robot de Nohay, un tipo majete en el fondo, aunque deberĂ­a ducharse de vez en cuando…

Pues bien, el pintoresco y harapiento personaje me ha dado permiso para publicar cinco de los chistes que ha recopilado en su libro para la secciĂłn de humor de mi blog. SĂ© que muchos de mis lectores son economistas, contables y financieros. Aprovecho la ocasiĂłn para saludaros y desearos a tod@s un feliz año 2016 lleno de felicidad… ÂĄy risas!


Un economista es alguien que cree que nueve mujeres pueden producir un hijo en un mes.


Los estudios económicos normalmente sirven para darse cuenta que el mejor momento para haber hecho algo fue el año pasado.


¿Qué es un contable?

Alguien que le resuelve un problema que usted no sabĂ­a que tenĂ­a, en una forma que usted no entiende.


¿Qué es un auditor?

Un contable que ha perdido su sentido del humor.

Two translators on a ship are talking.

A mouse is in his mouse hole and he wants to go out to get something to eat, but he’s afraid there might be a big cat outside, so he puts his ear by the opening and all he hears is “Bow Wow” so he thinks, “Well, there can’t be a cat out there because there’s a big old dog”, so he goes out of his mouse hole and is promptly caught and eaten by a cat, who licks his lips and says “It’s good to be bilingual !!”

The importance of pronunciation 🙂

On a visit to the United States, Charles de Gaulle was honoured at a banquet in the White House. Seated beside his wife was an official who spoke no French, but who tried to engage her in conversation by asking
“Madame de Gaulle, what do you think the most important thing in life is?”
“A penis”, she replied.
Overhearing, her husband said gently “I believe, my dear, that in English it is pronounced ‘appiness.”

JOKE: Two highway workers were busy working at a construction site when a big car with diplomatic license plates pulled up. “Parlez-vous français?” the driver asks them. The two workers just stared. “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” The two continued to stare at him. “Fala portuguĂȘs?” Neither worker said anything. “Parlate Italiano?” Still no response. Finally, the man drives off in disgust. One worker turned to the other and said, “Gee, maybe we should learn a foreign language
” “What for? That guy knew four of them and what good did it do him?”

Language joke:

“I’ve just had the most awful time,” said a boy to his friends. “First I got angina pectoris, then arteriosclerosis. Just as I was recovering, I got psoriasis. They gave me hypodermics, and to top it all, tonsillitis was followed by appendectomy.”
“Wow! How did you pull through?” sympathized his friends.
“I don’t know,” the boy replied. “Toughest spelling test I ever had.”

Language joke: A cat is sitting on the throne, and two dogs, an envoy and his interpreter, are standing before him. The interpreter dog is whispering to the envoy dog, “You’ll have to rephrase that. Their language doesn’t have a word for ‘fetch’”.

Language Joke: A gentleman wanders around the campus of a college looking for the library. He approaches a student and asked, “Excuse me young man. Would you be good enough and tell me where the library is at?” The student, in a very arrogant and belittling tone, replied, “I sorry, sir, but at this school, we are taught never to end a sentence with a preposition!” The gentleman smiled, and in a very apologetic tone replied, “I beg your pardon. Please allow me to rephrase my question. Would you be good enough to tell me where the library is at, asshole?”

Why is abbreviated such a long word?

Language joke:

The manager of a large city zoo was drafting a letter to order a pair of animals. He sat at his computer and typed the following sentence: “I would like to place an order for two mongooses, to be delivered at your earliest convenience.”
He stared at the screen, focusing on that odd word mongooses. Then he deleted the word and added another, so that the sentence now read: “I would like to place an order for two mongeese, to be delivered at your earliest convenience.”
Again he stared at the screen, this time focusing on the new word, which seemed just as odd as the original one. Finally, he deleted the whole sentence and started all over. “Everyone knows no full-stocked zoo should be without a mongoose,” he typed. “Please send us two of them.”

Joke: A Spanish speaking bandit held up a bank in Tucson. The sheriff and his deputy chased him. When they captured him, and the sheriff, who couldn’t speak Spanish, asked him where he’d hidden the money. “No sĂ© nada,” he replied. The sheriff put a gun to the bandit’s head and said to his bi-lingual deputy: “Tell him that if he doesn’t tell us where the money is right now, I’ll blow his brains out.” Upon receiving the translation, the bandit became very animated. “¡Ya me acuerdo! Tienen que caminar tres cuadras hasta ese gran arbol: allĂ­ estĂĄ el dinero.” The sheriff leaned forward. “Yeah? Well..?” The deputy replied: “He says he wants to die like a man.”

Language joke: A linguist walks in to a doctor’s office and says “Doctor, I have a rash around my mouth”. After close inspection, the doctor says “hmm, looks to me like it’s perioral dermatitis,” to which the linguist replies “yeah, that’s what I said.”

. eventually he decided to call the reception:

– The reception, Good morning!
– Hello! do you know Tom and Jerry?
– Yes Sir!
– Jerry is here! come and get it out.

Let’s get serious…

Julio CortĂĄzar Traductor

 If I was fond of giving advises, I would advise any young writer who finds writing difficult, to stop writing on his own for some time and to translate; to translate good literature, and some day he’ll realize that he can write with an ease he did not have before · Julio CortĂĄzar, in Conversations with CortĂĄzar, by Ernesto GonzĂĄlez Bermejo.

A man who knows four languages is worth four men.

Un hombre que sabe cuatro idiomas vale cuatro hombres.

VĂ­deo cĂłmico sobre la crisis. Bird and Fortune – Subprime Crisis

El humor inglĂ©s es uno de los mĂĄs inteligentes y refinados que existen.  John Bird y John Fortune (Long Johns) con brillantez y precisiĂłn, describiendo el modo de pensar de la comunidad de la banca de inversiĂłn en esta entrevista satĂ­rica. VersiĂłn inglesa con subtĂ­tulos en español. Lo curioso es que, con todo, ha crecido considerablemente el volumen de documentaciĂłn a traducir (memorias, balances, cuentas anuales, prospectos, hojas tĂ©cnicas de fondos…) ya que la gente quiere mĂĄs informaciĂłn sobre sus inversiones.
