The Slice

When the truth just won't work

I wouldn't presume to speculate about why people get tattoos on their neck and face.

I'm sure they have their reasons.

But you have to wonder. Who would hire these folks? Perhaps employers with lots of behind-the-scenes positions to fill.

Anyway, I suspect a small percentage of those with these high-profile decorations eventually regret adorning themselves thusly. And for those individuals, I have a recommendation.


Ordinarily, that's not the best policy, as you might have heard. But if you have tattoos all over your face and neck and find yourself at a job interview, here's what I suggest.

Declare that you are a Maori tribesman from New Zealand.

And then stick with that story.

"So, um, that was before you dropped out of Shadle?"

"That's correct."
