Really! It’s like Mad Libs.  See for yourself.

Here’s a sample….

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Stripe Starcrest and I am applying for Disney’s Two-Headed Crab position. For the past year I have worked as a fortune cookie writer for the guy who stands there and watches in Constantinople. While this was an amazing experience, I  have decided to take a different direction with my career and focus on koala bears.

I am looking for a job that will utilize my genuine love of rib cartilage and penchant for sail boarding and Phoebe. I have hairy computer skills, cyanide poisoning experience, am a suggestive communicator (both visually and verbally) and am a very in-the-mood and easy-to-work with individual.

Attached for your review is my resume. I know that if we get the chance to meet, you will see what an asset I can be to Disney’s Pitching a Tent department. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Step off,
Stripe Starcrest
