Prank ad seeks James Bond-style spy


UPI News Service, 11/24/2012 

An ad seeking a "target elimination specialist" willing to travel to exercise a license to kill was posted Friday on a British government website.

Unfortunately for those with James Bond fantasies, the ad was a prank, The Daily Telegraph reported. There were some tipoffs, like the suggestion that candidates should prefer martinis "shaken and not stirred."

A spokeswoman said the Department of Work and Pensions is investigating how the fake posting got onto the job center website and whether a government employee was involved.

"It is disappointing that somebody would want to post a false advert when people are looking for real jobs," she said. "It has now been removed."

The listed salary was 50,000 to 60,000 pounds ($80,000 to $96,000) a year with fringe benefits including "jet packs, mini-submarines and a Walther PPK."

Applicants were advised to leave paperwork under a "large and rather fake-looking rock in Regents Park."
