I am amused (but not necessarily surprised) to see your #6 so much higher up the list than it is on mine (about #15 or so).

Taxidermist -- yeah, you have plenty of experience of telling people to get stuffed ;)

Mmm. I don't think I'd be any good as an addictions counsellor though. My stock answer of "Well, stop it, it's silly." might not go down too well....

I particularly like the juxtaposition of "Electroneurodiagnostic Tech" and "Pet Groomer"...
