We're some wild and crazy guys!

I've enjoyed this thread on the Visual Editors board, people sharing their crazy newsroom stories.
A few years ago -- at a paper I won't mention by name -- our sports editor was advertising for a clerk to handle calls on high school sports nights.

You know that that little box, buried in all job applications, where it asks "Have you ever been arrested for anything other than a traffic violation? If 'yes' explain below." ...

Well, this young lady checks "Yes." The sports editor was almost afraid to read the next line. Sure enough, the lady was arrested for prostitution.

"Well, at least you know she doesn't mind working nights," he told us.
I'll share that one, even though the lewd one is my favorite. (Paging Wonkette!)
