Job application humor of the day

Greetings.

Usually when I write about the job application process, I complain about how utterly dreadful it is.  For a change, I would like to note a bit of humor I encountered in the process today.  Today when trying to go to the URL for a job ad on Simply Hired, it told me “Bummer. That job is no longer available.”  I appreciate the slightly humorous colloquialism in the midst of all the utter dreadfulness.  It makes me feel that at least one person (probably a Web programmer) is trying to make job seekers feel a bit better in the midst of a vast sea of indifference.
