Sanity Break: Best cover-letter ever???

Okay, we all know that the job-market sucks, and has for quite a while.  Perhaps what job-seekers need is a new approach, say, like a revised cover modeled after the one below from Roanold. You might consider using it as a template – what could possibly go wrong?

Mental Health Break: Silent Monks Singing Hallelujah Chorus

This is absolutely hilarious and incredibly original!  Take a look to see how a monastery of silent monks would sing Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus”:

And starting at the 2-minute-30-second marker, here’s a group of (cross-dressing?) nuns performing the same piece. Very funny, especially the nun to the far-right. What a hoot!!
