Joe Dirt

Move over bottled water ... there's a new natural resource that's being sold for way too much ... today we actually had to pay someone to come fill our yard with more dirt and then move it around until it was flat, and as "pretty" as dirt can be. We'll hold off on the rest until the checkbook cools off ...

This made me think about ridiculous things that I could get paid for ...

1. Removing the filling from Oreos so that people don't have to mess with undoing the cookies themselves.

2. Gum chewer ... helping the jaws of people everywhere (that was just for you, Laughlin)

I'm officially out of ideas ... it's been a long day, so I cheated and looked up the craziest jobs ever!

Pet Food Taster Not only do these people eat dog food all the time, some actually enjoy it! It's kind of like wine connoisseurs enjoying a new wine, except its stuff your dog or cat eats. To each their own...

Gross stunt producer If you've ever seen a show where people have to do disgusting things for money (like wade through rat-infested sewers or eat living bugs), rest assured it's because someone's job is to come up with such twisted concepts. A surprising amount of research is necessary to make sure that your ideas are not only gross, but also safe.

Bad Breath Smeller How else would you figure out if your company's chewing gum is getting the job done? This also implies there are people whose job it is to chew gum and breathe in people's faces.

Ufologist As the name implies, ufologists are all about the study of UFO's. History, recent reports, government conspiracies, it's all included, so if the unknown is your passion this might not be a bad start.

Cryptozoologist These are the people you see on television explaining so convincingly why Big Foot or the Loch Ness monster are real. It's all about using your science skills in less conventional ways.

Pathoecologist You'd be surprised how much you can learn from...poo. Pathoecologists study feces from thousands of years ago, learning much about the lifestyles and diets of our ancestors.

I think I'll just stick to being a mommy and teacher ...
