There is also a book in paperback by the bloke who played Keith (in `The Office`) -whose real name I can`t recall - listing the 50 worse jobs in Britain. Clearing up after the chickens have been slaughtered and cleaning out the sewers spring to mind!

In Moby Dick, Melville describes the job of the guy belowdecks who had to stack the slabs of whale blubber when it was slid down to him. The blubber room, as you can imagine was hardwood, but super slippery, and with the ship pitching in the waves, staying in place must have been a challenge. Melville puts it this way:

"Toes were few and far between among the blubber room men."
Look what the cat dragged in.

How about Armpit Smeller?? Yuck!!!

Foot/Armpit Sniffer: Deodorant designers and chemists rely on the olfactory expertise of people with highly sensitive senses of smell. If you have a nose attuned enough to make the cut, you can sniff before-and-after pits and feet for $40-50K a year. Contact deodorant companies.
