It generally means "We know you'll skip out as soon as you get a better offer, so we're not going to go through the hassle of hiring you just to have to do it again later."

Overqualified as in, I spent the past five years doing billing and analytical work and about half of this new job is manual labor.

Which they could clearly see from my resume.

No, it's 'Bright'.

Therefore, being bitchy and right makes you intelligent. Or you have Bright in your name somewhere.
Just found out about these people and maybe it fits?

Or it means 'You could do a higher-paying job but you can't find one and are throwing paper at us instead like everyone else.'

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

That sounds about right.

Also possibly, "I'm hiring you but I would also be your boss and I'm afraid you'll cause problems and not follow properly because you're more skilled or educated than most of the people around here. There's also the chance you'll take my job."

Probably this. I mean, if you're better suited to a more intellectually involved position, what's the best thing to do? Promote. At the cost of someone else, usually. :P

I am really tired of seeing shitty parodies of [insert recent popular song] constantly.

If you're trying to be funny, congratulations. You've created something that is completely dependent on another person's work and will become dated and forgotten faster than... well, the shitty pop song you based it on. Enjoy your fifteen minutes of riding someone else's coattails! I hope it was a good substitute for real fame, because that's probably all you're going to amount to.

If you're trying to be political, there are far better ways to make a difference in the world than making a Gangam Style parody. If you honestly can't think of one, please distance yourself from any political group you may support as you are an embarrassment to them. Then listen to some Neil Young and see if you can salvage your creativity.

Could we make an exception for Weird Al?  He did some funny things in his day.

Probably closer to n-th best to the real thing, unless you have a less-crap than average parody.

It's Weird Al's job, and he tends to actually do satire. Rather than just changing the sound of dubstep to a goat baaing or putting the word underwear in a song. :P

Weird Al has been known to make songs better than the songs he's parodying... He's even got an effect named after him
