The only thing worse than trying to find a job is trying to find a job during a recession. To that end, we present Wanted: A weekly look at the weirdest ways to pay the bills in Twenty-Ten.

The Job Elmo! Tee-hee!

The Responsibilities Assume the role of beloved, furry red monster by putting on a sweaty Elmo suit and taking pictures with little kids. Must not hate tickling.

The Qualifications High school diploma preferred. Familiarity with children ages 0-10 recommended. Petite build and no taller than 5'2'' essential. (They want a fake monster, not a real one.) Also need to be able to lift 50 pounds. (Guess Air Elmo is grounded for the chunky kids.)

The Pay $50 per appearance. No benefits, unless you count hearing the life-affirming sound of children laughing. (Which we don't.)

What the Job Description Doesn't Say But Should Want this gig? Then you damn well better be able to giggle on demand. (And you damn well better hope none of those kids you're entertaining is a budding arsonist, and wants to recreate this video.)
