During my accounting lecture yesterday, we were talking about how to account for interest expense (I’ll stop right there, I don’t want to lose my audience that soon).
On one of the PowerPoint slides that one of my colleagues had put together, he had inserted the following joke:
Why did the banker break up with her boyfriend?
- Because she lost interest.
Most of the students were able to guess that one, probably because we had just been talking about interest.
But most of them did not get the follow-up:
Why did the lawyer break up with her boyfriend?
- Because he lost his appeal.
The two jokes went over so well (not), that I decided to look for more break-up jokes, and I came across a whole page of them, so I thought I would share a few of my favorites. Feel free to groan whenever you want…
