I Laugh, I Weep...

Matt Taibi has an absolutely hysterical piece in the NyPress today:
NEEDED: Assignment editor in important cultural organization. Must have no morals and be completely full of shit. 5+ years exp. required. Serious applicants only.

It was Sunday, but I called right away. A woman answered:


"Yes, I'm calling about the ad."

"Are you completely full of shit?"

"I'm a journalist," I explained.

"A good one?"

"A hack," I said. "But at night, I sleep like a baby."

She paused. "How does Tuesday at nine sound?"

"That's fine."
I don't want to ruin the rest for you, the article is amazing. What are you doing, why haven't you gone there already?!?!
