SPAM APPLICATIONS! Bane of my existance

I get that part of getting the gig is a "numbers game", so you need to submit to many places. Heck, I'm OK with some parts of a long application being copy/pasted.
What I really dislike is the WHOLE THING being copied and pasted.
I ask simple "verify you've read what you're applying for!" questions and today, taking the cake, was ONE out of 74 applicants who read the FIRST sentence.
What the heck?? I spend more time sifting through that than actually interviewing, which is not cool because it limits my time to hire other people for other jobs!
How can we prevent this? As a client, what do i need to do to encourage people to read the job?
