Celebrity Friday

Today's Celebrity Friday is brought to you tomorrow. This is partly to do with the clocks going forward to British Summer Time and partly to do with other circumstances which, according to our public accountability policy and laws on openness and disclosure, are frankly none of your god damn business.

His name is Gordon and he is not as old as he looks. Professionally, he does something with money and numbers. He did tell us exactly what he does - several times - but we kept dropping off. His hobbies, interestingly, are money and numbers. Here is his thought:

Now, the really interesting thing about double-entry book-keeping is that every positive is a negative, so that when you add the negatives and take away the positives, you should be left with nothing at all. And what's more, you've got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, don't mess with Mr. Inbetween.

Alright. We made the last bit up. We did try to keep awake. In the end, to get him to shut up, we had to lock Gordon in a room with one of our Creative Accounting operatives and make him listen to a lecture on Hyperspatial Expense Accounts. The screaming was dreadful. Gordon just couldn't cope with the concept that time and space are relative, but at T4td Corp we always get paid.

T4td Corp.

We're in your head.
