Not sure if you wanted a serious answer or not... but...

A "regular" accountant typically focuses on preparing statutory accounts. A "management" accountant prepares the accounts that are used to run the business, which can vary significantly from the statutory accounts.
Village Idiot, thanks for the serious answer, which I appreciate. My question, though was more tongue in cheek. I once worked for a company whose FD said that accounting was all about smoke and mirrors. I was therefore not surprised when he was arrested for having embezzled the Milk Board several years later...
