Hive mind question (only out of curiosity at the moment): What's the most irrelevant requirement you've seen in a job ad?

E.g. A tech support job that required a CompSci degree, or a secretarial job that says, "Must be 5'10" or taller."

I'm not thinking here of stupid experience requirements (such as 10 years of experience in a technology that's only existed for 5) but simply irrelevance.
