Discovery Channel is looking for a Chief Shark Officer for this years Shark Week - this is not a joke.
See press release here
Some highlights from the job description / qualifications:
- Must enjoy exotic, waterfront locations, buff bodies in bathing suits
- Look delicious in a wet suit - (this is wrong either way you look at it. Fat / ugly people are not allowed to apply and skinny models are not appetizing to sharks).
- Benefits - a lot of insurance (Um, why?)
Sure, it is to be taken light hearted - but when will Discovery Channel stop with the "hungry, bloody, man-eating" association to sharks?
I know a few people that would love to have this position...I feel bad for the person that lands this job...it will be...dangerous.
