Say you were at a job interview and one of your interviewer’s asked you what was the best 49 cents you ever spent, what would you answer?

My answer is below.


I DID NOT answer 49:00 by Paul Westerberg, because I am a doofus. The interviewer was totally stunned by my speechlessness. He even said, while I wracked my brain for a good answer, I thought this would be easy.

Then he left me off the hook and said, “49:00 by Paul Westerberg.”

FFFFFFuUUUUUUCCCKK.

I biffed that one, and it made me want the job even more than I had before, if that’s possible.

How awesome of an interview question is that?

Did you at least tell the interviewer that you are Paul Westerberg?

That is pretty damn awesome though. The only question I ever get asked at job interviews is “Would you be willing to work for less than that?”

I tried to tell him that I was Paul Westerberg, and then he was all “great, we got some guitars in the back, let’s go.”

Well, not really. I did tell him that Paste Magazine thinks I’m Paul Westerberg.

Ah-HA!!! Caught you, Paul!! Since you in fact ARE PAUL FRIGGITY FREAKIN WESTERBERG, there’s no reason you would have to spend 49 cents ON YOUR OWN ALBUM!!!!

What do I win?
