Do YOU have the world’s worst job?
It is gratifying to see the response to yesterday’s post about the Very Worst Job in the World. Guesses are still very welcome, and the actual job will be announced at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
I have to say the single most commonly guessed job was U.S. Secretary of the Interior. Good try, people, but that one is just too obvious.
There were some very creative suggestions. In Peoria, Ill., 76 pre-teen boys sat in a room for three hours, brainstorming the question. They sent me 462 guesses, not one of which can even be printed here. Way to go, boys!
So keep them coming – you have like 20 hours left. Just to help you along, here’s a small section of the real Worst Job person at work. Tomorrow, the entire photo.
