Yahoo resignation letter creator could come in handy as reorg looms

The week is under way and another batch of Yahoo reorg rumors is fresh out of the oven. A friend shared with us something diverting among all the doom and gloom.

It’s a “Mad Libs“-style Yahoo resignation letter generator.

The generator creates a form letter with drop-down menus that give you a choice of key phrases. For example, the letter can begin “Dear Mr. Yang,” “Ms. Decker,” “Mr. Filo” or “whomever is running things today (sorry the org chart Wiki is changing too fast for me to keep up.)”

It continues, “It is with great (sadness, glee, self-interest) that I ask you to accept this letter as my official resignation from Yahoo!”

As the letter goes on, the choices get a bit more crass. But very funny. Enjoy. Oh, and be careful. If you click “submit,” it actually drafts an e-mail to your intended recipient with the subject line “Get bent, a@#hat”.
