WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Former Junkies producer Bret Oliverio appears to be doing very well with his Sup Dogs restaurant chain in North Carolina.

It wouldn’t be lip service to say, for instance, that Sup Dogs-Greenville has established itself as the go-to hangout for East Carolina students.

It doesn’t hurt to have the very lovely, physically-endowed ‘Sup Pups’ to spread the brand, either, some from whom, I wouldn’t mind receiving lip service.

The restaurant’s doing so well, in fact, a few months back Bret opened a second location on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill — located just off-campus — about an hour down the road from the Sups flagship.

And, as one Junkies listener found out, Bret’s looking for line cooks to smash burgers and dole out Sup sauce the way only a Sup-certified line cook can learn.

Let’s be clear: I’m not instructing you to flood the job listing on ScheduleFly with phony applications riddled with Junkies-themed inside jokes. I’m not saying that’s what you should do. I wouldn’t do that.

I’m merely saying that’s how one Junkies listener chose to spend just five minutes of his time.

If you still can’t read it, here’s how the application reads.

Name: Rick Felt            Email: LilBitHurting@aol.com

Phone #: 800 636 1067

Comments for Hiring Manager (that would most likely be Bret):

“I get sized to cook. Grilled chicken and BBQ sauce is silly. Everything else is gross and smelly. I call girls every Easter and grasp on that drizzly day.”

If this blog post so happened to inadvertently lead to a rash of ridiculous applications like those seen above — which you happened to tweet to me, and I accidentally updated the story with — it probably wouldn’t be all that funny for the Junkies to read them on the air the following morning.

UPDATE (12:30 a.m.): The applications have come pouring in. And apparently, this isn’t a new development. As Mr. Oliverio writes on Twitter, “They have been posting these applications for months.”
