Literary Craig's List

Every once and awhile, I scan the writing opportunities on Craig's List. I hope to find some cool writing gig that will take me away from the drudgery of ordinary life. Then I saw this:

★ Experienced Writer For DIFFERENT Adult Company (Full Time)

Experienced Writer Needed For High End Adult Internet/Production Firm
Know how to write conversationally but still know when to use "whom"?
Are you able to write in the style of someone else with ease?
Do you thrive on getting all the details just right?

A little about the company:
We're a very successful adult video production company specializing in real straight men testing their sexual boundaries and we're at the top of our game. Customers are intensely loyal to our brand and they're incredibly happy with the content. Yet there's one repeat complaint: the release schedule isn't quick enough.

Our competition releases a new video at least once a week. We average one full video every three. An attention to detail unheard of in the industry means that we're a filet mignon in a sea of cheeseburgers... but given a choice between a cheeseburger a day or not eating for three days (while that filet's being prepared), it becomes a more difficult equation for the customer.

Must be willing to relocate to Las Vegas.

Wow, the chance to be a full-time writer, but I don't want to live in Las Vegas. I guess that counts me out.

Evidently, whatever lays in Vegas, gets full video distribution.

This is my favorite line in the whole thing. The release isn't quick enough? Wow.

You could probably just move to Van Nuys and work this kind of gig full time!
