Jay Z's former hyphen posts employment ad on Craigslist

Hardworking SBL (Straight Black Line) seeks immediate, full or part-time employment having been recently laid off by my previous employer after 19 years of devoted service.

After being dumped by Jay Z last week, his former hyphen has posted an ad on classifieds site Craigslist looking for work.

The out-of-work hyphen lists its skills as ‘joining two or more words serving as a single adjective before a noun (“dead-end job”), ‘preventing confusion or awkward combinations of letters (“He forced me to resign” vs. “He refused to re-sign me for another year”), dividing words between syllables at the end of a line of text (des-per-ate, un-em-ployed), and, handily, some Photoshop.

Anyone looking to give the hyphen work needs to shell out $11 an hour/or best offer and locate the disgruntled former employee that lists its location as ‘lurking in Jay Z’s bushes’.

The ad which appeared on Monday has already been touted as one of the ‘greatest Craiglist ads ever’.
