Aaargh! this article has great potential for silliness, but is missing the gut-level laugh needed to survive and thrive. If I were to rewrite it, I would move just a little to one side...don't go after the obvious. Yes, lying on resumes is a common thing, and kinda funny, but only to a point. Either you lie really big ("I ruled Greece with an iron fist from 1902-1909...wrote The Great Gatsby in six hours and seventeen minutes with one hand tied behind my back" -- oh, I read those or something like 'em somewhere, don't claim 'em) or you go home. It has its limits.

How about thinking up a slightly offbeat purpose for a resume, like you're a Fresh-Off-The-Boat immigrant in your new native land, and you must gain employment and therefore income quickly? Or regular old you is trying to rent an apartment in Trump Towers? What would you say then? (Fuck off, Shandon?) That's how I would approach this article, and I hope it has some value to you.--Shandon 01:11, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
