More Laughs from Craigslist

So, I was checking out the Los Angeles Craigslist today, because every so often, dear Mr. Pink gets all riled up and says that we are going to move back to Southern California. So far, it hasn't happened, but it never hurts to keep up on potential job openings. Today, in the writing gigs, I found this gem.

It's about a guy who wants a ghostwriter for his book on how to pick up women. I thought he was serious, until I got to the part about how he considers T-shirts and "high-quality brand jean shorts (Gap, Old Navy, etc.)" to be the height of fashion. Then I realized that the whole thing was a clever satire. At least, I hope it was. Otherwise, his comments about staring at women at the gym while they're using the legs machine is just plain creepy.

So what do you think? Is this guy joking around, or is he really a clueless idiot?
