Personally, I Blame the Lizard People

But this was a thoroughly enjoyable rant...

Dear Art World,

I feel you sitting there trying to process the CRAZY shit going on. Iíve been there for months, and itís driving me INSANE. Fuck it, it seems counterproductive to EVEN talk about this shit, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS WHY ďSHIT is REALLY FUCKED UP,Ē or why Iím wrong.

BUT, Iíve come to some conclusions about shit. One is that we spend A LOT of time BLAMING each other for not understanding WHAT the problem actually is ó

I'm all for using unusual ingredients but I don't think I would try these recipes

"The next secret ingredient on the Food Network? The e-book version of "Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes" is now available, ending the refractory period on cooking with sperm. Although the experimental repasts, including Hollandaise sauce flan, may not offer any real health benefits, sperm could prove a smart staple in a faltering economy. As the Lulu description indicates, it's "inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, restaurants and homes."

Not everyone is impressed with the gastronomical gimmick. One Lulu reviewer complains "it takes a lot of balls (so to speak) to publish a book like this," bemoaning that the main ingredient seems to be added in as an "afterthought."

Do you need special training to write an Employment Posting?

I am retired but have recently started to browse through the on line job sites to help out a friends search and I have to say I have no idea what some of these job requirements really are...For example...

Experience with Contractual Hygiene.... This was for an entry level Admin job. Are they looking for someone to keep the papers clean? Are they looking for someone who knows how to run an anti virus or spell check?

And another for a receptionist position with a software company.

Consistent high quality of interaction with all drivers and principles.

Do you have to take a class to learn how to write bull shit like this and is there a contest for the most obtuse and obscure job requirements....I have a few nominees.
