The month-long gig is held by a lucky lady in the U.K. She spends the hours between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. in various beds, blogging about her experience, and being paid somewhere around £1,000 a day. OK.

2. Toilet Tester

ToiletFinder.com is looking for willing participants to write funny reviews of public restrooms. Do it well, and you'll be handsomely rewarded... to the tune of £50 a day. But it's only in New York City, so don't get your hopes up.

3. Island Caretaker

The upside? All of your expenses are paid for, and you get to take care of beautiful Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef. The downside? It only lasts six months, and it pays £52,000. Oh wait.

4. Pork Rind Expert

The ravens who hang out around the Tower of London are precious cargo. The claim is that if the ravens were to leave, then the Crown would fall, and soon, Britain as well. So before you fill out an application for Ravenmaster, know that the weight of the Crown is on your shoulders.

7. Fire Scientist

This job is pretty much exactly what you'd expect — it's people who specialize in all aspects of fire knowledge. But that title! We'd kill for that to be on our business card.

9. Laughter Therapist

Laughing has been proven to alleviate stress. The average adult laughs 17 times a day, but if you're finding that your laugh levels are low, get thee to a Laughter Therapist. It's the best medicine. Besides medicine.

10. Vomit Collector

Predictably, a Vomit Collector is tasked with the responsibility of cleaning puke at amusement parks. But the title suggests that these people keep a display case full of vomit samples in their living room. Which is unsettling.

12. The Epitome of Dishwashing
