The Very First 10-key Tramp Accounting Firm Tchotchke Contest

Because we here at 10-key Tramp are fans of low-brow entertainment we thought we'd post a bit of an experiment.

The online phenom known as eBay has more crap to collect than an army of homeless people could possibly accumulate in all their lifetimes.

So in the interest of relevance, Tramp has done some searching around the auction site, finding tchotchkes from your favorite accounting firms. We'll present a couple of our favorite items for each firm and then debrief.

PwC
PriceWaterHouseCoopers LADIES QUARTZ WATCH
PWC PRICEWATERHOUSE COOPERS LOGO TITLEIST GOLF BALL


KPMG
lot of 2 Mens cyle shirts by VOMAX kpmg MEDIUM M

1998 Winnipeg KPMG Labatt Brier Curling Sponsor Pin

PEZ Wrappers VÖGB, Raika, KPMG and Mc Donalds

Deloitte
PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG REP Lot 1 DELOITTE HEAVY Metal Pen
Deloitte & Touche Focus 2002 Laptop Bag

Ernst & Young
AGA Domain Ernst Young Lucite Paperweight Award
ERNST & YOUNG - 100 Best Companies 2007 T-Shirt MED New


BDO
New Mens ss NorthEnd golf shirt Large NWT Polyester BDO

Grant Thornton
Nothing.

Take aways
1. Grant Thornton and BDO you need to get better. Extremely disappointing.
2. The Radio Station wins for awesomest items, obv. Pez wrappers? Curling sponsor pin? No contest.
3. P Dubya is obv fancy-schmancy with the ladies watch but our guess you wouldn't want to meet any ladies wearing it.
4. Deloitte = BOR-ING
5. E&Y gets points for the lame paperweight but otherwise pretty Deloitte-ish

We know some of you have got to have some better/lamer/weirder tchotchkes. Please send photos, etc. and we'll post pics of the best ones.

  2. On my desk in front of me right now I've got:

    *Reznick rubiks cube (which I just sent you via twitpic)
    *ginormous EY calculator
    *Stonefield Josephson bean bag
    *Seiler Co M&Ms (i wouldn't eat them, they've been there for awhile)
    *Deloitte Silly Putty (who came up with that?!)
    and my all-time favorite, my SLGG magic 8ball. THAT one is actually useful.

    Can we arrange an accounting firm shwag barter maybe? Let's trade the crap we don't want for the crap we do. I'll throw in a handful of Roger CPA Review highlighters and coffee mug. ;)
