Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Are you an exceptional woman looking for a job that promises opportunities for advancement and pudding during the interview process? Listen up.

The CIA-referencing group MK-CULTRA has created a post on Craigslist seeking a "space cult priestess." The part-time work starts at $10/hour. Benefits include a celebration every Friday called TGIFPF, which means "Thank Goodness It's Fucking Pudding Friday," of course.

Here's an excerpt of the post from Craigslist (h/t to a job-seeking poster on Reddit):

MK-CULTRA is Earth's most dynamic new religion. Get in on the ground floor! You can help shape the future of an organization that could last millennia. We are seeking exceptional women to serve as Priestesses in our organization. This is a religion that will eventually be run completely by women. It's crucial that we find quality leaders that exhibit intelligence, strength, and compassion.

What is MK-CULTRA? MK-CULTRA is a religion based on science, reason and the guidance of an inner-dimensional being. We discover the Prelife knowledge that we all have buried deep within. Once you see the maze from above, it's much easier to navigate.

We welcome everyone 18 years old and older. We don't indoctrinate children. We try to emulate them. We promote intelligent apathy and encourage everyone to enjoy the time we have here together.

Sin and exclusive salvation are ancient concepts. We deserve better. We believe in equality, freedom and science. You don't need to be fixed. We are all perfect beings finding our way along the paths we have chosen in a reality that we have created. We're awesome.

We are against war, greed and oppression. Our time here is too valuable to spend on conflict. Our lives are too precious to waste on battlefields where poor people die for the enrichment of kings, countries, or corporations.

We're about embracing life and we often enjoy sharing Pudding and laughs. Yes, we're big on Pudding and celebrate every Friday with TGIFPF. We are irreverent and often vulgar in our delight.

We are currently in the process of filing the necessary paperwork to gain official recognition as a non-profit tax exempt religion. These positions will be part time and pay will be limited at first, but future salaries will be very generous. We're about people.

We have absolutely no idea if this is someone's art/film school project, viral marketing for that PT Anderson Scientology movie or just a very pudding-centric new way for you to celebrate your spirituality. Check out their Twitter feed, which includes gems like, "I'm getting in shape for the apocalypse."
