Don't You Just Love Craigslist!!

Explain to me why you'd want to hire someone who doesn't have any 'brains'???

Searching for creative writers with 5+ years of experience. Brains not
required, but a proven track record of writing bang-up copy is a must.

Brain not needed. In fact writing is optional. In addition, you don't even have to exist.....LOL That's a crazy one!

Not sure what's more incredible; people who write ads like this or the ones who apply :)

It's the ones who apply, or fall for those types of things that are so obvious. It's kinda funny and kinda sad. You know? I'm having a toast in your honor by the way LOL!

Usha, I am with you it would be a split decision on these people. But you did give me a laugh even if it is in the wee hours of the night here in Wisconsin.

This is what I keep saying though. No matter your financial moment or your lifestyle, you need to avoid the unpaid or low paid jobs and aim higher. As long as there are writers out there who don't believe in themselves, these kind of jobs will keep appearing! Funny? Sad? Undeniably true!
