The Motley Fool offers its readers serious financial advice, but the Alexandria, Va., publisher doesn’t take itself seriously at all. To wit, the following, which recently began appearing in the company’s job ads, just under the usual EEO policy statement:
“We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention—and the company’s historical record will bear this out—we will never hire any of the following: cyborgs, robots, replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool … unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new cyborg, robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!!”
