Quick funny offensive ad

From an ad in Science titled "Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment", which is pretty funny already:

All interested parties are encouraged to apply, including minorities and women.

!

Here's a good one, for contrast:

"... Medical Center is committed to increasing the representation of women and members of minority groups on its faculty, and we particularly encourage applications from such candidates."

Sheesh people, get the wording right!

If you read the ads in SCIENCE regularly, you must have seen the one from an Italian company showing a senior female scientist with the caption, "Why is she so attractive?" Which begs the question whether that company has any clue outside its pharmaco-chemical mission.

F.Y.I., the big pharm companies hire svelte models and cheerleaders to work at selling their products for them! (http://www.iht.com/articles/2005/11/28/business/web.1128saul.php) Grad school: what's that?
