Bean counter or bean eater...?
I just read Stuart Bruce's biography. I don't know why; I guess I was intrigued as to the background of the self-styled 'PR guru'.
His biog tells me that before starting one of those dull PR companies named after its founders he took care of the PR for Grant Thornton, 'one of the world's largest accountants'.
Brilliant! Maybe Grant's related to the chocolate people?
