When asked in 1963 why he wasn't joining the march on Birmingham against segregation, Heavyweight Champion of the World Sonny Liston is reputed to have replied, "Because I ain't got no dog-proof ass." It was a remark as glib and charmless as the man himself, but we couldn't help recalling it when we saw the following job listing for an "Executive Assistant opportunity for high-powered Publishing CEO/Media Personality/Radio Host/Producer!"

We're pretty sure this has got to be one of the worst jobs in the world. We hope whoever takes it has an ass made out of titanium.
