    by  • December 2, 2011 • On Culture

    Here’s a creative job application we’ve always loved. It landed the applicant a job at McDonald’s in Florida.

    Name: Greg Bulmash

    Sex: Not yet. Still waiting for the right person.

    Desired position: Company’s president or vice president. But seriously, whatever’s available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying here in the first place.

    Desired salary: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz-style severance package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.

    Education: Yes.

    Last position held: Target of middle management hostility.

    Salary: Less than I’m worth.

    Most notable achievement: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.

    Reason for leaving: It sucked.

    Hours available to work: Any.

    Preferred hours: 1:30-3:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

    Do you have any special skills? Yes, but they’re better suited to a more intimate environment.

    May we contact your current employer? If I had one, would I be here?

    Do you have any physical conditions that would prohibit you from lifting up to 50 pounds? 50 pounds of what?

    Do you have a car? I think the more appropriate questions here would be, “Do you have a car that runs?”

    Have you received any special awards or recognition? I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes.

    Do you smoke? On the job no, on my breaks yes.

    What would like to be doing in five years? Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb, sexy blonde super model who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.

    Do you certify that the above is true and complete to the best of your knowledge? Yes. Absolutely.
