OK, so first there was a piece of toast with the Virgin Mary's face burnt onto it. And then there was the piece of Nutrigrain that looked like ET. But why couldn't the trend have died there? The whole idea of auctioning off these edible artifacts is getting ridiculous. After spending less than 20 minutes on ebay, without even searching for these items, I came across a piece of "very sad" toast, another nutrigrain ET, a bbq steak the shape of Australia, yet ANOTHER nutrigrain ET, a penis shaped cheese twistie and, my personal favorite, a penis shaped cashew nut. Even worse is the fact that people were bidding on this stuff! I dunno about anyone else, but the last thing I would want on my walls is a framed piece of stale, moldy toast, smiling face or not. And really, you can't do too much with a cashew-sized dildo, right?
Same goes for recruiting...just because you find something that looks, smeels, acts and walks like a duck, or a penis, or a cornflake...or a CANDIDATE or a JOB ORDER or a PIECE OF GOOD RECRUITMENT TECHNOLOGY, does not mean that it is. These ebay opportunisits are like many in our profession...look closer. Ask the TOUGH questions...or you may just end up being HAD, with a shitty cheese penis on your wall.
But no Matter,
I LOVE YOU,
