Anti-Validation

Sigh….

For those of you that follow my adventures, you know that last week I fictionally reviewed a fictional pornographic film (http://thelongstar.blogspot.com/2008/06/career-move.html). I gained considerable enjoyment while doing so, and considering that I am always looking to up my stock on the scale of marketable employment, I did submit said fictional pornographic review to non-fictional job posting in hopes that the employer would look past the fictional nature and would see deep into my soul of utter seriousness. I am sad to report that they must have been blinded by my use of the word “vagina” and it would appear, my friends, that I do not have the write stuff (pun intended) for the job. Here is the reply I received:

Dear LongStar,

Wow, thanks Dave. Talk about a swift kick in the testicles. I feel totally blue-balled right now and I’m reliving my Senior Prom all over again…you get so close to the vag just to be cockblocked by a man with a gun and a dog. I guess I’m not sure where I missed the mark with my movie review…was it the fact that the movie was fictional? Was it my use of clinical terms? Was it the fact that I wrote it in five minutes whilst eating an apple and drinking a Diet Sunkist? Who knows really,but I won’t let it deter me. I will continue to write falsified reviews of fictional pornographic pictures until somebody, somewhere takes me seriously and gives me a “real” job.

Until then, the company that shot me down can sit on this \llll and rotate.

I’m serious. And don’t call me Shirley.
