Wow, I wish I knew what all that stuff meant. How about: Wanted: English major with sense of humor. Must know some stuff, but not really all that much. $120,000/year.

Yea Matt, I Just got a job as a 7th grade Language Arts teacher, but I think we should find a job where we can just hang out and read about baseball for $120,00/year. Someone hire me fast before the school year starts!

I'm even willing to work from home, even they don't want to find office space for me. No problem.
