Weirdest job ad you'll see today: extraction tutor

From the inbox (thanks, WW!), a pretty strange one: 
Temporary Organic Chemist  
Silverberry Botanica` - Wilmington, IL 
Organic chemist needed for a one-day position here at Silverberry Botanica'. Position consists of sitting in chair, dictating extraction instructions while company owner performs extraction of single alkaloid. Excellent opportunity for easy holiday cash. Experienced candidates ONLY! 
Successful extraction results absolutely necessary to receive payment!
Salary: $500.00 /day
Sadly, "This job posting is no longer available on Indeed." 


  1. No website... but found this:

    Might not wanna deal with these guys.

  2. WW... Walt Whitman ?

  3. CJ: Can I dictate sitting in chair from out of state, Skype etc.? Just curious'!

  4. I don't think so. I was looking for a maths tutor for my son's Test Prep and since we are having C2 Mclean in our neighboring. We got a home tutor from there.
