6 Strange Jobs We Can’t Believe Exist

So it’s time for you to climb out of your parents’ basement and start contributing to society. Sure, you could go with a nice conventional job like general manager of a Kentucky Fried Chicken. But how about something a little more, well, out of the blue? As it turns out, there are hundreds of jobs out there right now that you wouldn’t even think exist. From the disgusting to the plain out bizarre, here are some of the weirdest jobs in the world. How about applying to some of these? If you can handle it, of course.

Pet Food Taste Tester


You may have had to taste dog food on a dare in college. But how about making a career out of it? That’s right. There are real people right now who are literally paid to taste test dog and cat food.

If you think about it, it makes sense in a very weird way. A pet food taste tester has to make sure pet food is good quality before they’ll decide it’s good for Fluffy or Fido. Pet food taste testers also have to take notes about the nutritional quality of the food. In case you’re worried about getting sick, most pet food taste testers usually spit out food samples after briefly tasting them. Apparently it pays better than you’d think. Most pet food taste testers go home with about $40k a year. Bon appetite?
