That's not a job, it's an insult

A friend forwarded a job ad (which may be gone by now) from the Vancouver Sun yesterday (note emphasis):

He then commented: "TEN BUCKS AN HOUR! That's like, 2 bucks an hour more than they are legally obligated to pay you! I think they left out the part where you have to be a mute nymphomaniac lingerie model, and your family has to own a go-kart track..."

Hmm. When that last sentence makes its way from this site to the search engines, it should bring some fascinating people here.
