Wanted: Cheese Artisans, Pet Psychics, and Human Billboards, Plus 100 BullShit Jobs

If you're looking for a cushy job, then look no further. There are plenty. People everyday are getting paid to be cheese artisans, pet psychics, and human billboards. Wonder what a pet psychic does for living, then you need to read 100 Bullshit Jobs...And How to Get Them, by Stanley Bing.

You might think that your job is bullshit until you read the book which talks about 100 Bullshit Jobs. Read about the poor fellow who gets paid to be a Pop Tart or Aquarium Cleaner. Cable News Demagogue? Think Jim Cramer. Read an excerpt here. There is a word for this kind of bullshit job: sinecure defined by Dictionary.com as:

si‧ne‧cure[sahy-ni-kyoor, sin-i-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
1.an office or position requiring little or no work, esp. one yielding profitable returns.
2.an ecclesiastical benefice without cure of souls.

Yes, that is how bad it is. There is an actual word for BS jobs. So, next time, you know you're not the only poor bloke.
