Odd Jobs

Would You Rather: Odd Jobs

There are some really odd jobs out there, and by odd I don't mean jobs that you pick up here and there, I mean pretty uncommon. There are even a couple of photography books dedicated to them, called Odd Jobs and Odder Jobs, and two of the featured jobs are listed below. If you absolutely had to choose, which of these would you rather appeared on your business card?

  • Flatulence smell-reduction underwear maker: Create underwear that protect against bad human gas.
  • Dog sniffer: Analyze the odor of dog's breath to test the effect of their diet on their teeth.

The second one- dog breath doesn't really bother me. Flatulence really, really does.

well, since I studied material science in college, i think the underwear one would be more suited for my skills...that and the fact that my boyfriend and I need to lay off the beans... :P

I picked underwear maker. you don't actually have to smell the farts you just make the underwear. My boyfriend told me about those a while ago apparently there's just soem sort of charcoal filter in them to stop the smell. It sounds a lot eirder than it is.

i wonder how bad the flatulance smell reduction underwear itself must be in order to reduce the smell of flatulance...why not just invent underwear that reduces the sound? i think that would be cooler

I just can't imagine having to do one of those jobs. Here is a longer list that I saw on CNN about odd jobs. I guess this will help us to be thankful for what we do!
