I can haz dream job? Herez my rezumez

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080423/...as_cheezburger

NEW YORK - "I can haz dream Job? My rezumez! let me showz u thm"

ADVERTISEMENT


That's the subject line of a cover letter sent by a job applicant to I Can Has Cheezburger, one of the premier sites for so-called Lolcat pictures.

Don't think the letter will be rejected out of hand bad spelling is no obstacle to a job in Lolcat world. It may even be an asset.

Lolcats became an Internet craze last year. A typical example shows a picture of a fat and hopeful cat accompanied by a caption in a baby-talk-like dialect known as Lolspeak: "I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER?"

Apparently, looking at Lolcats all day is an appealing job. Ben Huh, founder of the site and chief executive of Seattle-based Pet Holdings Inc., has received 250 applications since the job was posted on Monday under the headline "Kittehs Want Moar Workerhumans."

"I got a stack of resumes that I can't even go through," Huh said. "You know how they say, 'Spell everything correctly because the people reading your resume will toss it out otherwise?' Well, we can't even do that. We won't knock you out for spelling.... The traditional resume screening methods don't apply here."

The winning applicant will join three other people who moderate ICHC and a few related Pet Holdings sites (think dogs with funny captions). A big part of the job will be selecting from the 7,000 submissions the company receives every day of captioned photos, plus 2,000 uncaptioned ones.

Cat ownership is not required, just "a great sense of humor, a deep understanding and love of the Internets and a strong work ethic."

If someone starts a site called Lolcatassassinations.com I'm signing up.

It's not a cat thing. It's a poster thing. The cats should be set free of these idiots.
