Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen. I hope your religious or non-religious holiday treated you well. And now, on to Dirty Jobs.
The first dirty job of the night is chimney sweeping. It is an extremely dirty job, and Dick van Dyke would have died of black lung years ago if Mary Poppins was real. You didn’t know it wasn’t real? I apologize.
Did you know there is a National Chimney Sweeping School? You know, in case that cabinet making class at the tech college isn’t working out for you.
The second job out host, Mike, goes on is lumberjacking. In the water, that is. There is 140 year old virgin timber at the bottom of lakes and rivers. They originally sunk when moving them over water to a mill. It just seems a little silly to go diving for it. Now add a couple of sharks and you have yourself an exciting occupation.
Enough messing around with these young whippersnappers. It is time to mill some 600 year old timber. Wow. That’s older than me and you combined! And that person reading this over your shoulder. Is that your boss? Hi there!
The last titular job of the day takes place in a metal scrapyard. Not a scrapyard made of metal. That would be plain silly and I hate you for thinking it.
Separating aluminum gutters from more valuable metals. Aluminum cans filled with spit and stagnant beer. Copper wires. Did you know copper is fetching a dandy price these days? If you live in a rich neighborhood, some rain gutters are made from copper. So, you know. Steal them or guard them closely. Whatever your financial situation calls for.
