Fox in SOX, a Sarbanes-Oxley greeting card

November 2, 2009

These days, testing under section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is just a regular part of the financial statement audit cycle.  Gone are the days when auditors spent their summer months documenting internal controls.  It’s a shame, really.  It’s as if Sarbanes-Oxley isn’t special anymore.

As we slowly emerge from our current financial crisis, why not re-live the golden age of financial regulation by exchanging Sarbanes-Oxley greeting cards with your friends and family?

As it happens, Sarbanes-Oxley hasn’t been much cause for celebration and, frankly, hasn’t inspired much humor.  Despair, maybe.  Lassitude.  Ennui.  Possibly disconsolation.  So, to fill this gaping hole in our nation’s popular culture, here’s my attempt.  (Sincere thanks to U.S .copyright law for providing a fair use exemption for satire.)

Fox in SOX, a Sarbanes-Oxley Greeting Card

I originally created this parody in 2005 for publication in a small corporate newsletter.

    Would it be ok if I use your pdf on my company’s SOX intranet page? We are trying to educate our company on why we have SOX and how to implement the COSO framework into our processes. I think a lot of people would really appreciate your humor.
