Yes, that’s a reference to Office Space.

Well, if you’ve ever thought about giving up corporate life and escaping the drudgery of paperwork by becoming a gangster, you’d better hurry.  Apparently, the yakuza have started giving entrance exams.  Yes, that’s right, the Japanese mob have started giving written entrance exams.  Or at least, the biggest of them, the Yamaguchi-gumi, have started offering written tests on “being a knowledgeable gangster”.  I know it sounds like something out of anime, or a dystopian Terry Gilliam movie, but, in fact, it’s real.

So, now, no one is free from a rigorous application process, even the mob.
One can only hope it’s a trend that makes it over here, too.  Maybe we’ll finally get a better class of crook again.
