Unless, of course, you're talking about the Axis of Weevil Thursday Three, which today takes up everyone's favorite topic, gainful employment!

Now, since your humble host has been so very busily engaged in just such an undertaking (i.e., remunerative activities), he has had precious little time to cogitate properly upon a fitting and proper set of questions. HOWEVER, we do have the ability to rely upon famed government contractor Larry Anderson from Kudzu Acres, who has graciously blessed us with the following:

If all jobs paid the same and education and training were not an issue,

1) What job would you most want to have?

2) What job would you wish on your least favorite politician?

3) Where would each of the jobs above be located?

As is the usual case, each of you please place your answers in the comments below or leave a link to your blog. Remember, too, that the competition is open to everyone, even if you've never worked an honest day in your life.

SO, get to work!

As for my answers...

1) I have always thought it would be fun to a historical research type person, sorta like the weird goofballs on that PBS show. I really cannot stand those people, nor the show--it's tediously p.c., relies far too much on contrived situations, and just annoys me--but I would like to do the actual legwork and research and travelling to interesting places and stuff. Even the endless microfilm viewing.

2) Well, let's see--there's my usual troika of detestables--Kennedy, Pelosi, and Reid. I suppose being Hell's only boiler-stokers or being Michael Moore's bellybutton lint pickers would be a bit much, so maybe since they seem to think I need to pay more taxes, I'd gladly swap jobs, and paychecks, with them.

3) Since none of these really rely too much on geography (aside from Hell), I guess I would like to be closer to the coast. Really. Even with the hurricanes.

So, there you go.

I’m UP and on my way to class. Just doing my wonderful job.
Glad you removed the honest thing.

1. I'd like to direct the rebuilding of New Orleans. This requires the supernatural powers of zapping dishonest and stupid jokers.

2. I would like for every politician who contributed to that disaster to bail water until hell freezes over.

3. I would work from a riverboat that could ply the Mississippi and the Intercoastal Canal.

1. Math professor at a 4-year college. Even better, one with a master's program.

2. Poop scooper for the circus.

3. For me, someplace where I could still afford my boat.

I'm in. And as I noted in my post, we done the work-related T3 recently.

And pointed sticks.

I'm sorry - I forgot what you said. What was it again?

Posted by: skinnydan at December 1, 2005 12:34 PM

Did I say something?

Posted by: Terry Oglesby at December 1, 2005 01:13 PM

1. Win a big lottery, be president of my investment fund and charitable foundation, then travel/mission to different areas.

2. I'll defer to the golden rule.

3. I'm where I want to be now, by the grace of God. I'd like to be out of debt too, but you can't have everything!
