Default Unusual jobs (not to be read over dinner!)

Lots of us are job-hunting, so I can't be the only one who is coming across some - er - unusual jobs! Apart from the one for "Adult Telephone Operator - must have good conversational manner" (!! ), today I have come across "Aromatic Residue Collector" - they promise "Excellent working conditions, including free nasal plugs....." starting to get the idea....? Criteria include enjoy working outdoors at nighttime, "preferably with limited olfactory capability" plus the ability to "wield a shovel and fill an over-sized bucket for prolonged periods without tiring".
Good fringe benefits though - the right to sell on all "aromatic residue" to anyone who wants it, such as gardeners........

Anyone got a better/weirder one?:scared:

Hey, I have "aromatic residue" in our backyard if anyone wants to come collect it. Just make sure you shut the gate after you so the horses cant escape .

My favourite has always been the (skilled and very well paid) chicken sexer. Sit in a shed all day ... no heavy lifting. Reach into a box of little fluffy yellow chicks. Pick up chick. Take a peek. Heave over shoulder into box on left if boy. Box is on right if a girlie chick. Repeat as necessary.

what about this job?
http://www.theage.com.au/articles/20...125651144.html

If I was to ever do that job, it would be a waste to spit it back out, and would definately need public transport/chauffeur to and from work
