Strange Jobs



Welcome to Strange Jobs week here at OPOD. We will explore unusual ways that people have made a living over the years. We start with this picture of a man in a cage. Oh, and you have to guess what his job is. Let the games begin!

  2. Yes, AJD, he collects the golf balls at the driving range. The cage protects him from the golf balls.

  8. I was going to guess something to do with dangerous animals, but then it wouldn't make sense that his arms were totally bare and unprotected.

  9. Whoa, big changes here. Been gone for a while, and the old format of how I see the comments is back, and the dreaded word verification Rorschah blobs are gone. Way to go, PJM.

  12. Great Contest idea! Congratulations, PJM. Wish I checked earlier so I could have entered my wrong guess!

    If he gets hit on the arm or shoulder with an errant ball, it is going to sting. Then again, it might not be an errant ball. I know some folks who would aim for him. The good news is - anyone aiming for him is almost certain to miss!
