NEEDS HELP: Defoe (Image: Paulblank)

Come gawp at the best jokes that Twitter had to offer in response to Jermain Defoe’s PA advert on the rather splendidly named Secs in the City website.

The Sunderland striker’s 2nd goal of the season earned his side their first point of 2015-16 in the 1-1 draw with Swansea, and now he’s on the lookout for someone to take care of everything from watering his plants to developing his own app.

With other responsibilities including stocking his fridge, organising Father’s Day in his house and creating “a global brand for the Jermain Defoe name” – yes, seriously – the successful applicant will have to work pretty hard for their “competitive” salary.

Based on this rather insane job description, I'm not sure Jermain Defoe knows what a PA is. http://t.co/uWUMXiuL26

Think the fridge-stocking would be our stumbling block http://t.co/J1gy7XpGXG

Basically from reading this advert Jermain Defoe wants a motherly geek that smells like a whore's handbag.
