It was a quiet Monday morning. Humpty Dumpty arrived promptly at his job interview.
“It says on your resume, Mr. Dumpty,” the interviewer pointed out, “That you have quite a long history of being a symbol.”
Never the least bit shy about tooting his own horn, Humpty pointed out that “Yes, sir, I’ve represented, over the years, everything from Adam and Eve to the Protestant Rebellion of 1517.
“Dumpty,” the personnel manager went on to explain, “I think there’s been a bit of a mistake here. While I’m quite favorably impressed with your outstanding credentials, all we want is someone to pose for our new breakfast menu.”
