Remininscent of the accountants' landscape in Douglas Adams, 'Mostly Harmless':
"It was a universe of densely 		enfolded worlds, of wild topographies, towering mountain peaks,  		heart-stopping ravines, of moons shattering off into seahorses, hurtful 		blurting crevices, silently heaving oceans and bottomless hurtling  		hooping funts... So this was where accountants spent their time. There was clearly 		more to them than met the eye. [Ford Prefect] looked around carefully, trying  		not to let it all swell and swim and overwhelm him."
