wanted: copywriter in uniform

I'm doubled over laughing at Copyranter's Craigslist ad of the week:
A dynamic, entrepreneurial for-profit college in Northwest DC is looking for an experienced copy writer.

The twist: while you are writing copy you will also fill the role of security guard, working 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We will buy your uniform. You won’t carry a gun. Applicants must be able to pass a drug screen as well as a criminal background check. The security guard spends most of the shift seated at the reception desk, and there will be very minimal security duties. Practically the entire shift you will be able to focus on writing copy – you’ll just happen to be wearing a uniform.
The pay: a whopping $18/hour. Interested? Click here. On second thought--if you're interested, click here.

Wow, I'm sure it's easy to concentrate on copy when you're checking IDs to make sure folks aren't sneaking into the ladies dorm after hours who don't belong....$18 an hour is okay money outside of someplace like Ithaca NY, NOT Washington or Arlington...fucking pathetic.

Ah yes, the hybrid career path is definitely booming.

You can also enjoy the art director cafeteria chef, the account executive jizz mopper or the production assistant entourage groupie position.

On the plus side, the presentations probably go pretty well when you're armed.
