Great Opportunity for Self-Loathing Ad People

Get $100 for Griping About Your Job

By Published on .

Gawker's posted a Craig's List ad from an (apparently Chicago-based) author who's titled his classified: "You hate the Ad business and can write a scathing essay why." He (or she) is looking for submissions -- and with sentence construction like that, it's no wonder. MultiCultiClassic's take on the ad is ... well ... classic: "In typical lazy adperson fashion, the wannabe author is soliciting content. Then again, it might be the work of an account person, as the request is riddled with typos and he's convinced people can accomplish the assignment in less than 30 minutes."
