Earlier this week we noted on The Daily Weekly that Seattle's premiere real-life superhero, the one and only Phoenix Jones, is currently looking for new recruits to join his "crime fighting" team. And to no surprise, it got folks talking.
As the post noted:
According to the help-wanted ad on Jones' blog, applicants must be 18 or older, have a steady form of income (because real-life superhero work pays the soul, but not the bank account), have a valid Washington ID, have no felony or violent crimes on your record, have military, police, or "provable" martial arts experience, carry (or be willing to obtain) a CPR and first aid card, own a a bulletproof vest "level 2A or better," be willing to submit to a background check ... and not be a journalist.
Sound like you? Well, then, future hero - apply here.
However, don't even think about padding your resume. Of the required martial arts, police, or military experience, Jones says "I will test you on this be accurate with your training level."
While the gig requires a clean record - and specifically no felony or violent crimes in your past - Jones does point out that, "If you have a crime pending you will not be excepted till the case is closed or resolved."
Good to know.
While Jones may be fighting for good in a world all too often full of bad, his grammar could use some work sometimes - and one Daily Weekly commenter decided to point it out.
As commenter EarCandy2 notes:
Maybe if he had a journalist as part of his team he would know the difference between "excepted" and "accepted."
