Have you ever seen a creative sysadmin resume?

I'm preparing an application for a Linux sysadmin position with a company with a startup atmosphere. The directions specifically expect creative resumes. I've had a few ideas, but many don't quite have the flexibility to encapsulate the contents of a normal resume.
For example, I thought about presenting a Makefile with my education and work experience, as directions on how I've built myself. But it's not a good way of communicating timeframes, and I worry esteem will be lost because it's not executable, whatever that means in the context of a simple resume.
So I'm augmenting my own brainstorms with a query for anecdotal resumes people have made / recieved over the years. Anyone seen a clever resume they'd like to share? Or ideas you had but dismissed because of Standard Corporate Culture?
