Think your job sucks? March 8, 2007

Couple of posts over at IB about lousy jobs.  If I wait long enough Michael will look them up for me so I don’t have to.

Anyway, none of them sounded as bad as this job.

Elephant fluffer.

MASTURBATING an elephant in the cause of science isn’t an easy job – just ask wildlife expert Dr Thomas Hildebrandt.

Apparently some elephants in captivity need a little help getting in the mood before they mate.  I guess dinner and a few drinks aren’t enough.

Just touching a jumbo penis – they measure more than 1.5metres when aroused – can have painful consequences as German scientist Dr Hildebrandt reveals.

Unlike Painless Paul, the dentist in M*A*S*H who was also having a little trouble in that department, I do not think I want to see Mr. Elephant’s junk when it’s angry.  No no.

“When you touch an elephant there it starts to flick backwards and forwards and it’s so strong it can knock you off your feet. It’s such a strong movement.”

But you make a friend for life.

I remember an old Texas Monthly article in the 70s about the 10 worst jobs in Texas.  One was a chicken sexer (or whatever word is used for a person who determines the gender of a chicken, which involved your thumb in a place you’d rather not put it.  Top of the list was a highway traffic button gluer downer person.

Those really don’t sound so bad after all.

Actually, it could be worse. You could be the asisstant to the guy who has to stimulate the elephant.

The guy with the bucket?

Yeah, that’d be worse.

Those are called “Botts Bumps”.

I thought they were “Botts Dots.” So it rhymes ‘n everything.

Are You looking for a new job?
First thing: Do they have Internet Access?
Second: Can the work be done by your joystick?
