Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Wednesday, April 25, 2021

To celebrate the paperback release of “100 Bullshit Jobs… And How to Get Them”, author Stanley Bing is putting half of it online.

Some occupations are no-brainers for this list: Construction-site flag waver, life coach, and of course, Donald Trump. Note that the “bullshit” designator doesn’t rely upon salary figure; the lowly crumber (crumber??) and the high-flying EVP New Media have equal standing on this dubious scale.

I note with pride that my two current gigs make the list: Consultant and blogger. Of course, I’m getting paid for only one (guess which), so I guess I’m bullshitting at only half-capacity.

Bing invites you to submit your own idea of bullshit employment. I’m tempted to send in “being Stanley Bing”, but I’m sure I’d be No. 52,893 or thereabouts.
