The Job Ad That Proves How Desperately You Need the Person You're Trying to Hire

I was perusing the writing job section of Craigslist as is my custom and I found this ad from Major League Soccer:

They are looking for "preditor"--which according to the body of the ad is a hybrid term meant to combine "producer" and "editor." If only they had an editor who could've pointed out that this sounds kind of awful.

If you're looking for a "preditor" perhaps the folks at Dateline and To Catch a Predator can help.

Obviously, this ad proves that they are in desperate need of what they're searching for.

But at least it isn't as bad as that other hybrid term--Dr. Tobias Funke's infamous combining of "analyst" and "therapist" to become the world's first "analrapist."
