Gas Prices and the Scarecrow

Really.. what is up with the 9/10ths portion on the gas prices.
It doesn’t con us.. at least those of us with more edumacation than your average third grader.
It’s really actually just annoying. Really annoying.

And, I really want to know: Why is the ocean near the shore?

10 Really Odd Jobs

Heh. 10 really odd jobs.

Bed Warmer – No, not your pet or your husband. There is actually a hotel chain that offers to have a staffer roll around in your bed and warm up the sheets! *!shudder!*

Dog Breath Sniffer – I’d rather be the head quack. Tests how a dog’s diet affects it’s breath.

Gum Buster – Scrapes gum from underneath tables, counters, seats, and sidewalks. Who you gonna call?!

Knife Thrower’s Assistant – Smile while a seemingly sane person throws around knives.

Breath Odor Evaluator – Oi. Does this one even need a description? I hope the ratio of working breath ‘cleaners’ is more than the non working ones..

Pollen Collector – An odd, but honorable job. The pollen apparently can be made into an extract to help allergy sufferers.

Leech Purveyor – Raise medicinal leeches and distribute them out to medical facilities. The leeches do the job of taking excess blood from post-surgical wounds.

Duck Master – Leads ducks in a parade into and out of hotel lobby ponds. The Head Quack, you could say.

Flatulence Smell Reduction Underwear Maker – Design special underwear to guard against the smell of people with gastrointestinal, er, problems.

Mermaid – Requires a year of on-the-job training to swim, lip synch, and flipper around a giant aquarium entertaining audiences with underwater musicals. Must have to be able to hold their breath for two and a half minutes while changing costumes.

Still think your job is so bad, now?
