Can I get a business card that says "Douche McGee, Editorial Assistant"?


Chad: I cannot accept your kind offer to be your Executive Assistant. My heart was broken when you refused to allow me to write an ongoing column: Satire, Shenanigans & General Bullshit. As you said, I am better served by just continuing to write comments,  zingers and stingers, while pissing off the general public from afar. Looking forward to 2012, I send my best Christmas Greetings to you and all the staff of the RFT, including the 47 staffers you laid off when the Kinder saga finally bit the dust! Happy New Year Meows.

This sounds like my friend Brian Matthews' dream job.  He was once approached by a well-known blog to write for them.  


Does this position require one to supply the Managing Editor with his morning coffee?
