Job Ad: Female Spanish Writers....

Craig's List is such a great source for crappy writing jobs, and there's so much wrong with what's written below (not only in terms of spelling and grammar), but possibly legally as well. There are some real jobs on Craig's List, I swear, but I've found quite a few like this:
