Diet Firm Willing to Pay $35,000 for a Couch Potato…

March 29th, 2010

A diet firm in the United Kingdom is advertising for a job across the UK and Europe for the next wannabe Homer Simpson.

The Job: Simple. Sit at home in front of the television and eat junk food.
The Pay: £23,750 British Pounds a year, which roughly equals $35,500 US Dollars.
Job Title: Product testing associate.
The Catch: Nothing. It is as good as it sounds. You just have to beat the competition to the couch position.

You could make a killing eating junk food all day.

You could make a killing eating junk food all day.

The diet and nutrition firm, Pro-Ac.Tol Ltd, is looking for someone to test their new weight loss tablets on. They want a person to consume an extra 400 calories per day, and have recommended they eat Chinese take-out, cheap junk food, and all the fast-food they want.  Pizza, fish & chips, burgers, hot dogs, pies, french fries, chocolate and ice-cream (to name only a few) are what the medical experts have advised they consume. The firm wants the tester to consume 16% more calories a week, and the succesful applicant will be helping their medical representative explore the theory that their new pill can absorb up to 30% of fat intake consumed.

$35,000 USD is not bad for a slob to get paid to eat more and sit around the house all day.

    Nice post… enjoyed reading this. I am glad there are diet supplements out there for people like us who like to lounge around all day and stuff our faces. Must be good PR for the company offering the job as well.
