If anyone fancies it - and in these times many might - a job for Tharg.

Can anyone spot the wonderfully ironic mistake here...

...while acknowledging the wonderful irony of me pointing out such a mistake... or is that hypocrasy...

Ooh, I know a couple of folk who would be great at this.

I must admit I'm always tempted to stick an application in for things like this - the interview alone would be a very good learning experience, but I know there is no way I could make it work.

I don't have the experience for it which is a shame as this could be my dream job :(

I assume you were referring to this golden nugget:

Excellent knowledge grammar and copy writing

Yeah - I mean if even I spot it with my butchering of the English language it must be bad!

Perhaps they will only employ people who spot that, or maybe they’ll hurl them into Mek-Quake’s maw for being a smartarse. Who knows? (As a copywriter, I’d argue that the two forms are a question of style, but copywriter is vastly more used than ‘copy writer’, which I wouldn’t tend to use myself. That said, this is far from the worst ad I’ve seen of late. One was recruiting for someone in editorial and was essentially incoherent.)
