First two lines from an actual help-wanted ad posted on a freelance job board:

Fresh news/reporting platform needs a writer who meets the following requirements:

* PERFECTIONIST with grammer and spelling

Look on his words, ye mighty, and despair.

Well, you can see why they need someone. Was the next line a requirement too, or do they need a math perfectionist as well?

@WindyPundit: "...or do they need a math perfectionist as well?"

That could be just another "grammer" error, rather than an inability to count beyond one.

They're looking for the people who point it out, perhaps? :)

Good to see somebody still gives a nod to the classics...

Classics fah. We had to memorize it in the third grade.

Instead of a decent poem for third graders.
