Unintentionally humorous letters of recommendation

From a letter of recommendation for someone we interviewed at the meetings:

"I wish I could be lucky enough to have a couple of more students like [NAME] who do not take much time to supervise."

It is not often that I laugh out loud while reviewing letters of recommendation, but I did in the case of this comment, which reveals more about the letter-writer than about the candidate.
