Herbert Kornfeld, My CPA Hero

I was reminded, today, of one of my all-time CPA heroes from the early Onion days, Herbert Kornfeld. Herbert was the CPA and Accounts Receivable supervisor at Midstate Office Supply, and The Onion ran him from about 1999 – 2007. He was a really dorky white CPA who spoke ebonics. A sampling:

“I gots skillz, muthafuckas. Shit be COLLATED. Copier out of toner? I be all over that shit, ‘cuz only I can replace tha Hewlett-Packard toner cartridge without gettin’ all that inky powder shit all over tha insides. “

This one is a classic: “What y’all heard about the CPA convention be lies.” Maybe it’s just my outrageous and unlimited sense of humor, but I always found the Herbert Kornfeld features to be a scream.

    The following link was my introduction to Herbert Kornfeld and also The Onion. I had found a free copy of the paper in our Student Center and had to show it to everyone that I knew. Too funny.
