WANTED! Professional Couch Potato - £24,000 per year

by SamHenshaw 4 replies
Hi Warriors,

Just found this job vacancy for a "Professional Couch Potato" and HAD to share.

£23,750 per year just for carrying on doing what you normally do (for me that's being sat in front of the PC all day) and adding a couple of hundred extra calories a day - erm, yes please!

You can read more about it on the telegraphs website, looks too good to be true but apparently it is! Might be time to dust off the old CV!

    I love the out-of-the-box thinking on this one! Sure, it's nothing more than a clinical study, but you've got to love the way they advertise it. Thanks for sharing!

  • Where to apply ? Just kidding. For me this job is harder than any regular job. I know personally some "unprofessional couch potatoes" and i don't envy them at all. I hope that all the people in this forum will do something significant with their life even after they make all this money they desire to have.

    @jcoolbaugh yeah it's certainly a different way of generating interest - caught my eye anyway.

    Agree with you too though @OneHourTranslation I think I'd probably get bored just sitting at home eating. Good for the first few weeks then I think I'd get cabin fever and want out.

    OK, in todays dollars, that is about $35741! That is about the average income in the US.

    They probably won't admit US residents though, huh?

    BTW MY CV or, more approately HERE. resume, doesn't include anything about my dietary habits or being a couch potato. Too bad, this would be a GREAT second income! 8-(
