What’s wrong with this recruiting ad?

What follows is not fake. Perhaps whomever wrote it and then posted it on CraigsList wrote is as a joke, but it’s a poor one.

While bona fide occupational qualifications can certainly be utilized in the recruiting and hiring process, we hope that companies who have such legitimate requirements would create more professional ads. Since “attractive” was misspelled in their email address, we assume they aren’t receiving many replies.
