So, What do You Do? November 12, 2014Posted by Sobek in Humor.
I recently had a High School reunion, the first one I’ve been to. It occurred to me that it would have been kind of fun, when I got the inevitable “so, what do you do for a living?” to simply lie. Not because I’m embarrassed about my job or anything, or because it’s some big secret. I just thought it would be funny to see how outlandish I could get and still get some of the incredulous to think, just maybe, I was telling the truth. Sort of like the first time I met Wiserbud, and I convinced him I was Tushar by speaking in an Apu accent (Note: the foregoing is 100% true and hilarious).
Here’s some of the things I came up with:
1. Corporate espionage
3. The drummer for Pantera
4. Kazoo manufacturer
5. Professym of gender/midget studies at Vassar (hat tip to the brilliant Liberal Larry for the word “Professym”)
6. Professional YouTube commenter
7. Teaching German in Latin
8. Psychokinetic fissionist
9. Spice merchant
10. Camel husbandry
