Following last night’s epic Oscars fail by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) by mixing up the envelopes for the Best Picture winner, many of the accounting firm’s clients are demanding their tax returns be re-done.
“How can we trust their calculations?” asked Comax Industries President Maxwell Fluber. “For all I know, they put our tax return in the wrong envelope. Or, maybe instead of paying over a hundred and twelve million in taxes last year, we should be getting a huge refund. Who knows with PwC?”
Indeed, many of the accounting firm’s clients are referring to the Oscars mishap as being “PwC-ed” and they are questioning all actions conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“They’ve been telling me for years that our business is bad,” J.C. Penney CEO Marvin Ellison told The Lint Screen. “So, I listened to them and just announced we’re closing a bunch of stores to save money, but now I’m wondering if we shouldn’t be expanding instead! Maybe business is great and America is ready for our stylish fashions! I’d hate to get PwC-ed out of business.”
