If you need a job application letter to give you an edge when you apply for a position this template is not the one to do it!
With all the job losses lately and competition tough for the few jobs that are opening up, you need to get noticed when sending in an application.
However, unless you're trying to get into The Comedy Network or some creative position where the company definitely has a big sense of humor, then don't use this one. You may get some laughs, but you probably won't get an interview.
I just couldn't resist doing something like this, even knowing that 99% of the companies out there have no sense of humor. Wouldn't it be neat if someone brought you in for an interview because you like to laugh rather than reject you for it?
Oh well, I can dream.
If you have a sense of humor (and enough guts) modify this funny email and send it off. You probably don't have much to lose anyway, the way things are today.
