Tech sector faces influx of nutcases

More tales of incompetance over 75 per cent of the 245 direct applications received by Lighthouse PR in the past three months contained basic errors including spelling and grammatical mistakes, formatting blunders and even applications addressed to competitors.

Peculiar pastimes included 'Wicka and occult magik', 'nudity and naturalism', 'ferret-legging' and 'cheese rolling'.
