Jobing.com: Employment for Bad Spellers | Photo by Andy Sternberg for LAist

This billboard has been bugging me for months and it's all over LA. WTF is "Jobing?!?" Surely it's more than just a website designed to capitalize on typos of the unemployed. But what is this Jobing Community of Greater Los Angeles all about anyway? Is it community in the Eco-Village sense? Is there a secret society that worships the prophet Job? Do they have gaming casinos?

Turns out the eight-year-old company (which also owns and redirects traffic from jobbing.com) bought the naming rights to the Phoenix Coyotes arena in Glendale, AZ -- right across the street from this year's Super Bowl.
