Jobs that are just Plain Weird

Ever heard of an odour judge? Or a dog food tester? Well, there are people who would do just anything for money. They would take up the weirdest, most random jobs which most of us didn’t even imagine existed!

Being a pet detective looked cool in the movie Ace Ventura but to think that it is actually a real job is hard to comprehend. Then there’s a professional whistler. Yes, a person who gets paid to whistle. Being a snake milker or a mascot or a rodeo clown, there’s just so much to do!

In casinos abroad, there is a special person who is just employed to check if the dice that you’re playing with is perfectly proportioned or not. Then there’s a vomit collector, someone who is employed in theme parks specifically to mop up puke near rides that tend to inspire motion sickness. A professional queuer on the other hand, stands in queue for tickets and all for a small commission.

People don’t actually eat worms just to get 10 minutes of fame on TV; they get paid for the gross stunt too. A fart sniffer gets paid to smell gas given off by cows in order to determine their diet, hormonal balance, and overall health. There are just no words to describe the absurdity of some jobs.

Some of us love to sleep all day. Did you know you can actually make money out of that? Doctors and scientists need these ‘professionalsleepers’ to research more about insomnia and other sleeping disorders. And did you know that there’s a livestock masturbator? Similar to the animal inseminator, they are individuals who masturbate cows and other barnyard animals in order to acquire the body fluids necessary for conception. Again; no comments.

The world is full of so many odd jobs. Why worry about being unemployed then? There definitely must be something out there for you too!
