Over 2 dozen comments later, we have 5 winners.
Before I announce the winners of this comment contest, thank you to everyone who participated. Although leaving a comment is easy, this contest required a burst of creativity. More than a few people took up the challenge, and one – Yonatan Silver – took it up more than once. Thank you all.
Thank you also to Scott Gerber for sponsoring the contest on the occasion of the launch of his new book Never Get a “Real” Job, which is getting some great reviews, so the winners really have something to look forward to.
The 5 Winners
In no specific order, the winners are:
1) Dan Share (no relation that I know of)
My favorite line: “Assemble resume copies on the ground (outside your bosses window), forming the words “I QUIT””

My favorite section: “3. Request that they cut each letter of your resume and rearrange the letters to create an attractive yet really nasty 80's style ransom note, addressed back to you, and threatening that unless you pay them 1,000,000 dollars wuthin 3 days, they will kill your resume. 4. Ignore the letter, letting resume die.”

3) Yonatan Silver
My favorite lines: ““We’re going to have to throw your resume overboard, or we’re going to sink!” … “I’m sorry,” the captain called to me, “But surely you know you’re supposed to try to keep your resume to a single page.””
