Yes, they confuse actuaries with tax accountants.

If you watch the last minute of this video you'll get more of it.

Okay, one of my kids bought the Zootopia book. Here's the actuary reference.

"I don't have to grow up to be a lonely hunter," said the jaguar, showing a business suit under his robe. "Today I can hunt for tax exemptions. I'm gonna be an actuary!"

Lyrics:

Quote:
I am the night watchman,
I stand by the door.
Some fifteen thousand nights
I have stood here for.

For all of you actuaries,
That’s forty-six years.
They’ll be closing up the hotel
When the morning sun appears.
