Let me take this job, or shove it

Here’s an interesting tidbit that’s recently gone viral: a letter from Hunter S. Thompson looking for work at the Vancouver Sun. Reading it is a treat, as reading HST (nearly) always is. The letter is from 1958 – more than a decade before Hunter achieved his first taste of fame notoriety with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

 It takes a once-in-a-lifetime talent and arrogance to write a cover letter like this one.
