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?

Sanity Break: 5-year needs a job before getting married!

Funny!!

 

Here is the story from YouTube:

I am a singer/songwriter and had been asked to go on National Television to sing one of my original so-ngs. My little 5 year old sister (she’s six now) was upset and feeling left out because her big sister was doing all these fun and interesting things. This 1 minute clip is part of a 15 minute video where she discusses her views on life and decides she isnt going to let anything come between her and her goals.

Mental Health Break: The Adventures of Dog Fort

Dogfort Dog Fort

The internet is full of pics and videos of cats and dogs wearing cute clothes, chasing their tales, driving a car, pouncing at themselves in the mirror, etc. But at Dog-Fort.com, what started out as a photoshopped picture of a dog in a kid’s fort (made of pillows and a blanket), became a full-fledged cartoon strip of Dog Fort vs. Al Cata (or dogs vs. terrorist cats).  Sophomoric pet humor using detective-show clichés – hilarious!  (h/t urlesque.com

Check out the site here. Here’s a few examples.

Sanity Break: Most Ridiculous Senior Yearbook Quotes

A senior yearbook quote is supposed to be inspiring, reflective, philosophical, or – at least to the person pictured – extremely “deep”. Perhaps a mantra to help them on their life journey.

But there can also be some total dorks that think of ridiculous quotes to place next to their senior picture.  Here’s a few of the more ridiculous:

Sanity Break: Tina Fey & Jane Lynch before they were stars

Bad commercials before they were famous!!

Tina Fey & Jane Lynch before they were stars

Check out early commercials done by two Emmy winners before they hit it big – Tina Fey and Jane Lynch (for Mutual Savings Bank and Kellogg’s Corn Flakes respectively)

 

 

In 1995, Mutual Savings Bank seemed to be looking for a perky and quirky persona to advertise for their bank, and a youthful Tina Fey, who was then just known for her Chicago improv work at Second City, got the job. The commercial looks like a 90’s trainwreck, but underneath the big hair and applique vest, we can see a bit of Tina Fey’s “30 Rock” character Liz Lemon.

 

 

This clip takes place in Kellogg headquarters Battle Creek, MI, where we see a woman stalking Tony the Tiger.  The actress is none other than a young Jane Lynch, soon destined for stardom in “Best in Show”, “The 40-Year Old Virgin” and now the Emmy-winning acress from “Glee” – Jane Lynch.

Enjoy!!
