You Should Definitely Apply To This 'Bacon Critic' Job Posting

The website Extra Crispy, a breakfast-exclusive comedic site that was just launched today, is opening up applications for its paid “Bacon Critic” job opening, albeit a freelance role.

The Extra Crispy Bacon Critic needs to be opinionated and thorough in his or her research, and will be expected to eventually decide which bacon is the best in the country. Other qualifications include serious writing chops, an unmistakable voice, a sense of adventure, and an insatiable hunger—for bacon.

Sounds like somebody I know.

Besides, despite my spot-on writer’s profile, there’s only one real candidate for the job — and it’s actually pretty obvious:
