A goofy job, no bull!

February 8, 2008

Blog Guy, I got a glossy brochure asking me to consider a career as a “recortador.” I know you give great career advice. My college friends and I are wondering if we should try this when we graduate in May.

To be honest, no. This photo shows all you need to know about recordators, who work with no weapons and just hop over the intended victim in a bullfight. Look, even if you majored in English lit, you should be able to land a better gig than this.

“Hello Mister Bull, I’ll be your recortador tonight, and I won’t fight back if you want to gore me. For your convenience, I’ll just leap like an idiot until you see a spot you’d like to stick your horns in.”

Reminds me of that eternal classic line from the movie UHF. You remember the one. It has to do with poodles.
