Worst Jobs in Science

Corpse flower

Chicken Sexer didn’t make the list of the 10 dirtiest jobs in science this year.

Here’s what made the cut:

Manure Inspector
Orangutan-Pee Collector
Hot-zone Superintendent
Extremophile Excavator
Dysentery Stool Sample Analyzer
Semen Washer
Carcass Cleaner
Fistula Feeder
Corpse-Flower Grower


  1. hot-zone Superintendent - sounds like someone monitoring menepausal women.

    corpse flower grower - well, it's a pretty flower.

  2. Did you ever see Victor Meldrew (One Foot in the Grave) in Canada?
    He was one of those dysentry whatsits before he made the big time.

  3. those are great.
    I have a girlfriend who used to work for a veterinary research group and her job was to collect the semen from the coyotes using a fake vagina. Doesn't that sound like fun?

  4. Nothing as bad as the cleaning of faeces off false teeth on the geriatric wards*.

    Well.. you did ask!

    *For that special occasion do it first thing in the morning....with a hangover.

  5. Pink: Or monitoring a nuclear waste plant.

    IDV: *offers IDV a nosegay*

    KAZ: No. But that's worse than Brad Pitt's early job dressed as a giant chicken working for El Pollo Loco.

    Kyahgirl: Did she fake the orgasms too?

    SID: Please don't explain how the false teeth got faeces on them.

  6. Collecting Orang piss has always been a dream of mine. Some bastards have all the luck.
    Why wasn't being married to Donald Trump on the list?

  7. What the,
    Semen Washer? What is this a public fuck room?

  8. HE: Collecting orang piss? Not much call for for that in Winterpeg, is there?

    Causalien: A public fuck room? 'Tis. And welcome.
