13 Bizarre Jobs You Never Knew Existed

The Cracked Podcast #255 September 2, 2018

Did you know you can get paid to be a fake mourner at a funeral, for families who fear a low turnout? Or to pretend to be a fan of a celebrity, to make them seem more popular at appearances? If you have the right look, you could even get a job as a fake businessperson in China, for companies who want “Americans” in the background of their press conferences. 

These are just a few of the bizarre but very real jobs covered in the Personal Experiences section of Cracked, along with things like “Spice Merchant”, “Professional Drug Test Subject” and “Human Hair Collector.” Today, we’re talking to Cracked contributors Evan Symon and Isaac Cabe, who’ve spent years tracking down and talking to people who work jobs that are weird, fascinating and almost totally overlooked.
