These 20 Completely Absurd Jobs Are Also Completely Real. Seriously, What The?

Monday, January 06, 2014 |
Most kids dream of what they want to be when they grow up (and face it, most adults still think about who they want to be when they “grow up”). More often than not, children think about becoming firefighters, doctors, lawyers and astronauts. But what other jobs are out there that we could dream about?

Photographer Nancy Rica Schiff took a peek into the lives of people working some of the strangest jobs you’ve probably never heard of. Did you know someone actually gets paid to smell other people’s armpits?

1. Dog Food Taster
2. Potato Chip Inspector
3. Page Turner
4. Odor Judge
5. Bull Semen Collector
6. Rubber Chicken Maker
7. Knife Thrower’s Assistant
8. Horse Dentist
9. Horse Chiropractor
10. Golf Ball Diver
11. Fish Counter
12. Dinosaur Duster
13. Coin Polisher
14. Artificial Inseminator
15. Mt. Rushmore Crack Filler
16. Condom Tester
17. Men’s Underwear Designer
18. Wig Maker
19. Coffin Builder
20. Bingo Caller

If you want to see more strange jobs, Nancy wrote two books on the subject that include more of her photography: Odd Jobs and Odder Jobs.

I’m now determined to make sure my future child is encouraged to be a wig maker or fish counter. Someone has to be!
