In Case You Missed It

Thanks to Sheridan Jobbins, (Twitter name @5oh19) for alerting me to the most hilarious comment stream I've ever seen on a job advertisement. What's even better, the stream is still growing - and it's getting funnier all the time. Even Bartleby has had his two bob's worth.

10 comments:

  1. Kept me engrossed for hours when I should have been working...as a text editor

    1. Perhaps you could apply for the job as well? Or perhaps you would prefer not to.

  2. Wonderful - and Bartleby (my hero) is the icing on the cake.

    1. I think there's a plaque down on Wall Street somewhere marking the place where he preferred not to work, but perhaps I'm imagining it. Will have to ask the daughter with whom I went to New York (having a child is like having an external hard drive, when your own memory banks start to get a bit patchy)

    The comments are even funnier on second reading (or perhaps you would Bart).

  4. Might be the first time I've laughed at a comment that ended with "Hitler."

  5. I've been reading these comments for five days. I think I know how to get this job now.
