Weird Job of the Day
I'm sitting over at Blondie's the other day waiting for a friend to show up and at the table next to me is a big group on one of those new 'speed dating' get-togethers. So I'm sitting there listening to them talk as they go around and give brief introductions of themselves. Pretty much a bunch of yuppie lawyers, stock brokers and investment bankers who can't get dates on their own. Anyway, one girls simply says she's in "biotech", which sparks the group's interest and they ask for more info. She goes on to explain she's a scientist who helps manufacture experimental drugs for a major pharmecutical company, which raises more interest. After the standard round of jokes about Viagra and Levitra, she deadpans back, "No, I'm actually working on a drug that helps shrink live pigs' balls."
