I bet the 200,000 goes to buying Huireng Shenbao and Wuji Baifengwan [Chinese medicine that are supposed to strengthen one’s sexuality]…Be careful making it your career!

mylovejake12:

God has opened a door for me…

武二:

This job is even more coveted than civil servant positions. Haha. Managers of the major adult forums are the best candidates for the job.

乔小囧:

Resume already sent. What a job needs is passion. I’ve been identifying porn during my free time for about 10 years now.

王小浪漫:

If the benefits included 10 kidneys and a giant 300-pack of tissues every day, then this would probably be a really nice job.

习惯的寂寞:

Could the recruitment e-mail address already be overwhelmed?

相依相偎走一生:

What happened to the former chief officer?

干露露:

I think women would be suited for this job! I mean, could men survive it?

弗老师:

I have never seen any of those unhealthy publications and videos, so I can only miss this opportunity. What a pity.

当官不为财请我都不来:

If one is exhausted to death while in the process of identifying pornography, is it an occupational injury or accident?

歪歪餅:

It’s time for me to go make use of my talent.

        One man, one mission….

        • Panda Banana

          you mean there is an agenda behind? something worth the effort, a goal, target, probably a new movement born out of vulgarity?(wouldn’t be the first one)..:-)…his timing will be an important factor when he likes to keep up with all the future sofas in the same way…we will see!

          • mr.wiener

            Indeed. …But since the guy who says: “Sofa!” is Sofaman, that must mean the guy who says:”Cunt!” is……..

          • billy

            You.

          • mr.wiener

            I’ll have to root around for my thesaurus otherwise we’ll devolve to the level of “Well at least I’m not a F*cking cunt!!”

            Seriously though the best I’ve ever heard was the truck driver who worked at the timber yard I was machinist at. He always said:”I’d call you a cunt, but cunts are useful”.

          • Astra

            There is a certain irony to this.

            A cunt calls a cunt a cunt in a story about cunts looking for cunts.

          • astra

            Not that I’m saying you are one

          • mr.wiener

            Noice!!

        Cunt on a sofa!

        Brilliant! ‘I am Spartacus’

    • billy

      Yes, you are a complete and utter cunt! now begone.

  • Bugs Bunny

    aya!
    i should try to apply!

    • Panda Banana

      no you should not. Foreign Porn is most likely the reason you are how you are now. Not really a dose you should increase….having said that, in your example its harmful!

    “Possesses good teamwork skills”

    I wonder how this applies: must share good porn with other team members? must view porn together in group? must discuss and analyze porn standards in team environment?

    • the ace of books

      Share? Discuss? View? You’re thinking too small. They want active participation! “Must engage actively with pornography.”

  • Irvin

    They didn’t stop people from using facebook with the firewall, they sure as hell wouldn’t stop people from downloading porn.

  • markus peg

    Does this job also come with a work visa?

    After the “research” has been done, what happens to the “research”?
    If you want to take the research home to do some overtime is that allowed?

    “Familiarity with the different standards of pornographic content of different countries.” Depending on the meaning of standard, China’s is below standard. =]

    Nobody ever caught HIV from their own hand, yet there’s millions of visible whore houses lining the streets where there’s a strong possibility. Its because they aren’t allowed to cash in on porn like ripping off facebook and youtube, so they ban it.

  • YourSupremeCommander

    Does the job include a stipend for research work at a whore house?

    I can see why they’d supply yogurt and fruit to help nutrient loss but a personal cellphone??. .I forgot about 1-800-sexy-tme.

    Sounds like a fun job, until you see toddlers being raped. Then the 200k’s not so good after all.

  • http://twitter.com/zfa069 zfa

    Wow. I can just imagine what is considered pornographic in China, considering the kind of porn there is available in the US. I bet their standards are a bit more strict. I’d apply, but I live in the US, don’t speak Chinese, and don’t care much for porn.
