Having trouble finding work? You're not alone. Follow Jobbed every Thursday as we troll for the weird, the wacky and the worst of what the recession-era world of job ads has to offer.
The Job, as posted online: Part-time trampler in Capitol Hill
Pay: $10 to $100 per hour depending on how brutal you can be; cash daily
Qualifications: "I am an Extreme Stuntguy from L.A. working on a new Jackass Extreme clip. I need to practice everyday to condition properly so I will not get hurt performing. I am seeking anyone and everyone to walk, stomp, jump on me."
Responsibilities: "You get a damage waiver in case I get hurt you are not responsible. Trample me with whatever level you are comfortable with, from just walking on me to standing on my throat or crushing my face. The meaner you can be the more you get paid, so I encourage you to be mean."
What it doesn't say: You are a masochist and a freak and are helping this guy fulfill some sort of sick fetish -- or not. Still, follow this career path and you will most likely find yourself in prison rather than on a TV show.
