Hate asking ... but can anyone explain this joke:

- Do you have a job?
- I'm an accountant.
- Chartered?
- Turf. Penny Warrender and Vince Pinner, Just Good Friends

In the UK, a “turf accountant” is a bookie. Bookies are often viewed as shady characters. The UK also distinguishes between “certified” and “chartered” accountants. The latter enjoy the highest status and are viewed as honourable individuals because of their vows of probity to the Crown and membership of a discerning organisation.

OoooooooKAY .... thank you!

I am still looking forward to the day when someone can explain this one to me:

I can deal with not understanding math or the universe. But for some reason, few things frustrate me as much as when I don't get a joke.

Me too. But really ... I trust that's not your reason for being up at four ay em! :o

What was the source of that cartoon again? Maybe the context will help.
