ARE YOU SNAKE MILKER MATERIAL?

Unfortunately, this economic funk has made us all reexamine our professional lives. People aren’t just looking for jobs with big paydays, but also something that will actually last for more than say, 6 months. For that, you need to work in an industry that people are always going to need. Acquire a position that will weather any economic storm. I’m sure you’re thinking it to, SNAKE MILKER. Yes there are some similarities to the more popular dairy farmer version (both positionsdeal with animals). However, in this case you’re not after cool, refreshing milk, but rather collecting the snake’s venom. A toxin that is the primary ingredient in creating an antivenom (used as an antidote when someone is bitten). Job requirements include: a BA in biology / herpetology (study of amphibians) and yes, probably a snake trainingcourse or two. Upside? Stable job with a decent salary. Downside, you’re working in a room full of freakin’ snakes every day. The job bites, literally.

  4. Why does it amuse me so much that the study of amphibians and reptiles is called herpetology?

  5. Hmmmmm, wonder if they'll take a guy with no credentials or degrees but is a hard worker from the ground-up.

    ...meh, knowing my luck I'd end up with the job where they spank snakes off or somethin'.

  8. I think I'll leave the milking to the maids. I'm better at catching them with a grabby pole, anyway.

    I can always count on you for the entertainingly obscure posts!

  10. I don't mind snakes that have no teeth and don't coil around you, but that wouldn't work so no, I think I would pass on this job.

  11. If that's my only hope for a job, I do believe I'll remain unemployed.

    Love,
