'Dirty Jobs' really rubbing off on Mike Rowe


Sometimes I wonder if I could be doing more with my life professionally. All my performance reviews say no, as have numerous recruiters. Still, it's just human nature to kick back in the cube and imagine the thrill and excitement of the "road not taken." At such times, I find it comforting to consult this poster touting Dirty Jobs With Mike Rowe on the Discovery Channel. See the full, disgusting poster here. It reminds me that no matter how tough it gets to grind out 400 words a day for AdFreak (250 last Friday, because I overslept), it beats slaving away as a "fish gutter," "whale autopsy tech" or "sheep castrator." No one in their right mind would consider such job options. Though, when you think about it, the fish, whale and sheep in question got an even worse deal. And if you don't mind my asking, purely out of curiosity: Would I get to keep the guts?
