On applying for jobs......

Application forms have that huge blank page in them that says something like - "Give your reasons for applying for the post".

Wouldn't you love to write:

Because I need the money,
Because I'm not independently wealthy and can sit at home all day reading.
Because I think this job may be okay
Because it shouldn't take up too much of my time
Because if I have to work, I certainly don't want to work too hard and I think this may be the job that lets me do that.

I know I would.
And if I didn't genuinely want to get the jobs I'm applying for I think I may just try it.
Maybe I should just apply for a job I don't want?
Who knows, I might get an interview on the novelty value of my answer?
