Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from West Virginia writes:

Conducts routine inspection of food operations ranging from street carts to large dining facilities.

$$:  Not nearly enough considering what inspectors have to see and smell.

Upside:  Health Inspectors know where not to eat.

Downside:  Health Inspectors know too much to eat anywhere.

Darkside:  Name calling (food nazi) and becoming the target of hit-waitresses

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
