Monkey Island

I used to work at MBS Radio.  I left the company primarily because I got tired of working for a company that didn’t seem to care one iota about the people who worked for it.  For the most part, I enjoyed working with the people I worked with.  But the company itself drove me (as it had countless others) away.
Anyway, I was made aware that the Charlottetown stations (CFCY and Magic93) are looking for a new producer, and that their online advertisement was rather, um, unique?
Here it is, in part:

PRODUCER

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Some say that primates are a gene or two short from
being human … so we could actually hire a monkey as a producer, but we’re
looking for more than a button pusher … we want someone with that special touch,
a magical touch when it comes to producing commercials and station
imaging.  A producer
who understands the entire process of production from client expectations to
programming consistency.


“we could actually hire a monkey”.  Is this really supposed to entice a potential producer to come and work there?  Anyway, perhaps it’s just sour-grapes on my part, but this made me laugh.

At any rate, I see a potential sitcom for Bolo, the Monkey President.
