But whether you scrubbed pots and pans in your dormitory cafeteria or worked as a live mannequin for a clothing retailer, chances are you did not have an stranger job than some of the real-life jobs described below.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Odor Tester - Some chemist has to make sure that all of those deodorants and anti-perspirants are operating properly to keep their users free of funk!

***

Citrus Fruit Dyer - There are commercial farmers out there who dye citrus fruit a more vibrant color to hide the ripeness of the fruit.

***

IMAX Screen Cleaner - Someone has to make sure that huge screen is crystal clear for our viewing pleasure.

***

Light Bender - Making neon lights seems like it would be a relatively easy job, but it requires a lot of precision and electrical work. If the lights don't have the proper thickness and shaping, they will amount to nothing more than broken glass.

***

Weed Farmer - Weed farmers actually grow weeds rather than trying to get rid of them. They sell them to horticulture schools and labs so various people can do research and studies on them.

***

Cow Hoof Trimmer - Just like horseshoes, cows need some hoof maintenance too. Cows can have poor milk production, lameness, and decreased fertility if not properly groomed.

Only one color, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
