This is a very good list but if I were you, I would change the title. Some of those jobs are not horrible. Like for example, I think a lion tamer or a street mime are actually a pretty cool jobs. So, I would switch 'horrible' by 'weird'. Anyway, it is your list.

Well done! Now, it is perfect. Good luck!

Brad Pitt - hottest dancing chicken ever.

Mathew Maccognaghey maybe should have stayed with his previous job. But then again much hasn't really changed, the man still works with shit.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, Bidstag.com

Some are not even weird, just ordinary jobs like a carpenter, milkman, bank teller... Anyway, Sylvester Stallone as a lion tamer is weird indeed! :)
