    Joey Comeau has a hobby. He makes fictitious resumes and writes cover letters to match. But these aren't ordinary cover letters. These are the cover letters you'd write when you don't give a damn. When you want to tell dirty jokes and reveal your darkest secrets. When you don't care what the HR rep sees, as long as they see it. All of them start off pretty normal, slowly descending into one man's madness or frustrations, until you realize you're reading something special. The results are always hilarious, often insightful and sometimes a little scary (until you remind yourself he's not being serious. I think.) Overqualified is another blog to book phenomenon, so many of the original letters are available to read for free here: http://www.asofterworld.com/oqarchive.php Some great examples: http://www.asofterworld.com/oq-display.php?id=48 http://www.asofterworld.com/oq-display.php?id=50 http://www.asofterworld.com/oq-display.php?id=33 http://www.asofterworld.com/oq-display.php?id=29 He actually used to SEND the letters until one of them got him a visit from the bobbies. Now he just posts them. I kinda miss knowing that at any given time, somewhere in corporate land, an HR rep is either doubled over in laughter or slowly recoiling from the craziness he's reading.
