Scenes from a Job Spec

I get sent job specs from time to time, and sometimes it is clearer than other times that the person who wrote the spec has not the faintest clue what they want. Today, I get this requirement in a spec:

"AGILE PROGRAMMING IS KEY TO THIS TEAM - IDEALLY TDD OR PAIR PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE * Upon interview you will be asked to demonstrate Paired Programming ability."

I am very tempted to mail back and ask, should I be granted an interview, whether the interviewer will be providing the required programmer to pair with, or should I bring my own?
