News and content aggregation site the Huffington Post is looking for a new "comedy editor" to oversee its comedy section, media news and job list site Mediabistro reported on Monday.

The job profile involves developing laugh-worthy ideas and funny, compelling copy. The news and opinion site has also specified that the ideal candidate should have a sharp awareness of politics, pop culture and the comedy world, with a strong understanding of social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

The comedy section features funny write-ups or e-mail forwards such as "11 Reasons Sarah Palin Will Win the Presidency" and "The 9 Most Annoying Christmas Songs".

Earlier this month, the HuffPost also launched a novel "divorce section" that focussed on failed marriages. The Huff Post Divorce includes advice columns by lawyers, financial experts and psychologists, news on celebrity divorces and a forum for readers to discuss their own divorces.
