Title (Circle One): Miss Mrs Ms Mr Almighty

Dear Applicant,

I am pleased to confirm that you are officially being considered for the position of my god. A formal interview will be arranged at a future date, but in the meantime please complete the following questionnaire to assist us in determining whether a permanent arrangement would be mutually beneficial. Pen is fine and pencils are available on request, but we ask for purposes of building code and hygiene that neither fire or blood be used as a marking device.

A) My holidays are best observed:
  1. in quiet contemplation
  2. in demonstrative supplication
  3. being emotionally vivisected at family gatherings
  4. at the mall
B) Devotion to me is best expressed through
  1. attendance at my places of worship
  2. respect for creation and all living things
  3. strict obedience to my laws
  4. bumper stickers
C) If I ever need to get your attention, I'll
  1. create a spectacular celestial event
  2. smite you with whatever's handy
  3. come to you in a dream
  4. just stare at you and expect you to figure out what's bothering me
D) The worst possible sin is
  1. the worship of another god
  2. murder
  3. sex (enjoying it)
  4. sex (not enjoying it)
E) I created the universe and everything in it, therefor
  1. you must worship me
  2. you are a part of me
  3. you are me
  4. it wouldn't kill you to say thank you
F) I summoned everything into existence
  1. because I was bored
  2. on a dare
  3. to pad my resume
  4. by accident
G) I love everyone
  1. equally
  2. mostly
  3. that loves me first
  4. none of the above
H) Drugs are
  1. a way of connecting with me
  2. a way of disconnecting from me
  3. too expensive
  4. therefor I am
I) Reincarnation
  1. enables beings to start fresh
  2. enables beings to continue on
  3. enables beings to pretend they're really Cleopatra
  4. saves on production costs
J) I am applying for this position because
  1. if you believed in me you'd already know
  2. if I believed in you I'd already know
  3. I made the mistake of saying you could ask me for anything
  4. this is just a formality, right?

Give me my sceptre now.

1,2,3,4,4,1,1,3,4,1

ok, waiting on my phone call...you are calling back right? what am i saying i knew you would before you were born...

Al Penwasser said...

These are great! I've shredded my resume; looks too difficult for me.
Maybe I'll apply for the position of 'demon'...?

Gaelyn said...

LOL!!! Pretty much 4s for me.

Rita said...

I can't stop giggling!! :):)

Erika said...

This is a way better quiz than anything I took out of a magazine when I was like 16.

mythopolis said...

Whenever I get paroled, I hope you will consider me. Meanwhile, I guess I can still think 'out of the box' even if I am locked in one. So, here are my answers to each part of this exhausting application questionnaire.
A....when I get to open all the presents regardless of who they belong to.
B. ...orgiastic rituals.
C...blow up your car.
D...spilling your last beer.
E....next time you see me coming, you better run.
F...while on laughing gas.
G...it's just people I can't stand.
H...the gift that keeps on tripping.
I....is what happens to carnations when they die.
J....the missionary position has gotten sorta ho-hum.

I would be available anytime upon parole, or once I've done my time (2089). Thank you. (If you could send me some fortune cookies with plastic explosives inside, I could be available much sooner.)

ladyfi said...

Wonderful post! Love the last question and answers... So, when do I start?

nick said...

Asking me all these impertinent questions shows a complete lack of respect for my Supreme Beingness. If you haven't noticed by now that I've created the perfect world and the perfect entities to populate it, there's no point in my wasting any time on you. Kindly depart for another universe immediately.

And for your information, the worst possible sin is of course hairy armpits (if female) or comb-overs (if male).

Laughing Vault said...

great idea :):)

Eva Gallant said...

So what's the pay scale?

Raven said...

Genius! Utter genius! And I thought I was funny. ;)

Deidre said...

I got a rejection letter from a job I applied to the other day it said "dear Mr./Ms Decoybetty" (ok well it said my real name...)

It made me laugh because they couldn't even bother to discern whether my name was male or female.

Rob K said...

Yea, verily, I say unto thee that I really enjoyed this post.

Meri said...

Haha, I enjoyed this a lot.
It all comes down to the same thing, doesn't it- somethings out there and us silly humans keep screwing everything up, putting importance on things that don't need it, and ignoring signs we should probably see.

What a fun blog- glad to find you!

Antares Cryptos said...

Does this application involve sacrificing humans without a sense of humor? I must know.

secret agent woman said...

You know, pretty much any combination of those answers would make as much sense as the things I learned in Sunday School.

Jenners said...

You are so creative and hilarious ... and now officially on my blogroll (which I am very very picky about who I add to it as it easily gets out of control if I don't have "quality" control). And you, my friend, are quality.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Heh!

A great post but I think I'll pass on this offer.

Nari said...

If you run into any applicants who choose "4" on every question, I suspect that person may be my long lost sister. So, please let her know how to reach me.

What I Did Today said...

Is it weird that I answered 4 for every question?
