I just tumbled upon this open record document. It’s a cover letter for a faculty job with a Wisconsin university:

I am writing to enter my candidacy for the position of Provost and Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I believe that my experience and qualifications make me an ideal candidate. I have an extensive background in liberal arts education, one that includes teaching, scholarship, and administration. My style is collaborative and, as per your ad, I believe I possess a strong sense of humor. Others tell me that I do and deep down in my heart, I agree with them. I’m damn funny.

I admire his humorial fortitude.
