Writer wanted for blob?

A posting from July 12th on the Elance freelance work web site said that:

“We're looking for an Article Writer to generate high-quality written content for our blob.” 

They probably meant their blog rather than just a blob. As usual the qualifications desired for the writer included excellent spelling and formatting skills. Presumably that included proofreading skills, which the poster clearly lacked.

When you rely only on a spelling checker, you also may wind up with the phrase “pubic speaking” when you meant to say public speaking. It’s particularly hilarious to find that lascivious typo in the title to an article or a YouTube video.
