In This Corner!

Gotta love these job ads:
Featuring only professional, elite fighters from around the globe, "King of the Cage" is a competitive event pitting warrior against warrior in hand-to-hand battles of skill, honor and art.
From Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to wrestling, Muay Thai to boxing, all styles are encouraged. But, in order to consistently win, participants must be well versed in every aspect of the fighting game.
"King of the Cage" . . . It's about punches, kicks, elbows, knees, big knockouts, technical submissions, take-downs, and strategy. It's like no other sport you've ever seen!
REQUIREMENTS: The ideal candidate will possess people skills and excellent interviewing abilities. They must own a recording device, be skilled typists and have an Internet connection in order to deliver all finished articles in a timely fashion.
APPLICATION: Please send a resume and two writing clips. Include a phone number with any correspondence.
HOURS: We're asking the candidate to post at least 2 articles a week, with three to four preferred.
COMPENSATION: Free entrance into MMA events and free clothing

But at least this ad gave me an idea! I think instead of just working for free or for t-shirts, we should organize events where these job scammers get together to find out who is King of the Cage! That's right, imagine this guy getting together with the term paper mill scammer - who would win! Or, how about that scammer in Arkansas who wanted writers for $3 an article who promised to remember my name vs. the guy who said I was a money-hungry writer because I wanted pay for my work!
Imagine knees, elbows, kick boxing - and the prize? Lots of exposure for their scams and our undying appreciation for their hard work.
Oh, and we might give them a t-shirt that could read: "I got the crap kicked out of me for expecting people to work for nothing, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt."
