Getting hired for a job, despite being highly unqualified. Typically, you applied for said job as a dare, joke, or just because you can. You BS your way through the initial interview process, until it becomes too embarrassing to admit you're not actually qualified and you don't actually want the job.

Usually, the said job requires a career of experience and great feats; however you manage to bypass the process by: keeping your goals vague, not giving any details about your plans, and stating that you alone can fill this position.

Bonus points are earned if you are hired despite being openly bigoted towards anyone different from yourself, AND you are chosen over someone who is obviously much more qualified than yourself.
