Help Wanted: Must Love Cheerios And Disney

When times get tough, the job market tends to get a little … er … creative. You know a Craigslist “gigs” ad is going to be sketchy when it starts with these words: “This is an odd request.” Where it goes from there, I could not have predicted in my wildest Disney-fied dreams. Let me give you a hint: This gig involves role play, a bad Disney film from the ’80s, and a love of Cheerios. Yep. That’s right. You guessed it. Someone is hiring for a “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” role-play partner. The perfect candidate would be skilled at playing “normal size” to a “shrunken individual” and have extensive knowledge of the Cheerios scene from “Honey I Shrunk The Kids.” Requirements for the job? A verbose female who is descriptive almost to the point of it being ridiculous, very imaginative, and a lover of Cheerios. Pay? $50 per session via email or IM. Who’s game? It can’t be real, but it’s just too mind-blowingly bizarre to be fake. I bet the resumes are just rolling in. [Craiglist]
