I love leafing through resumes. It's amazing how life--and works in progress--can be summarized in tiny details: in commas and periods, in hyphens and dashes.
Just as there are different views, there, too, are varied resumes. There are cut-and-paste versions and there are those that command attention. There are resumes that spell determination and drive, there are that imply that their subjects are simply coasting along.
In my 8' x 5' corner of the (bureaucratic) world, a resume can be a source of boundless amusement. Consider these:
Place of birth: Neighbor's house
Color of eyes: Black and white
Distinguishing mark: Pimple on left face
Name of father: Dead
Name of mother: Dead again
