“When accountants go insane, do they start to hear invoices?

A joke about accountants/bookkeepers is:

“When accountants go insane, do they start to hear invoices?

The joke has been cited on Twitter since December 2, 2011. The “hear invoices” pun has been cited in print since at least 1989.

My accountant has been done for embezzling, but is pleading insanity. Apparently he could hear invoices in his head telling him to do it.
