Play Along in the Voice Film Editor Sweepstakes

I don't even want to guess the over-under on how many times this fucking thing has been forwarded, mocked, countermanded, rewritten and redistributed -- likely by the same people trying to figure out how many gruesome cracks they can make at the New Times chain's expense while remaining in the running for the job:

The Village Voice is looking for a film editor. We need someone with a deep, working knowledge of movies past and present, a passion for the form, and the skill and experience necessary to edit critics, assign reviews and coordinate coverage of releases in seventeen major American cities. The job requires high energy, a reader-oriented sensibility and a commitment to provocative, entertaining criticism that informs, challenges and excites a broad national audience. We're not looking for a film scholar or historian; we want an experienced, smart, witty, hard-working editor to produce coverage that appeals to the widest possible audience.

Evidently, knowledge of Associated Press style is not required (serial comma, anyone? Spelling out numbers over nine?) either, which indicates to me there can only be one front-runner for this gig. Talk about your "deep, working knowledge."

Anyone got a favorite? Feel like laying odds?

"'Widest possibly audience?' Total bullshit. Where do I send my resume again?"

--My impression of, um, me, and just about everyone I know.
