My Daily Mail job application

In case you haven't heard already, the Daily Mail is advertising for trainee reporters. Everyone else seems to having a huge amount of fun writing detailed applications explaining exactly why they should be the "lucky" candidate who gets such a job, so I thought I'd join in. But I was a bit rushed for time, so I kept it brief:

Dear Daily Mail,

I hate immigrants, gays, Facebook and life itself. Please can I have a job?

Lots of love,


That's well inside the 200-word limit, so I think I'm in with a good chance.

How did you get round the mandatory need to attach a CV? I'm keen to send in my app but don't want them reading that!

Easy, take a leaf out of Liz Jones's book...

"I don't have my CV available to send you so I thought I'd attach this photo of my very expensive underwear. Isn't it interesting that you can be arrested for walking around with no clothes on, and yet there are elaborate systems in place to ensure you don't get a job you don't deserve?"
