Ah, the dream job. We all have one, two or maybe even 20. It’s tough to line up all of all of the cool places that you could work, but we’ve done our best. So, in honor of TBS’s awesome comedy
"Men at Work," please enjoy our Top 10 Most Ridiculous Places to Work!
Top 10 Most Ridiculous Places To Work
1. CBGB’s Bartender (1980s)
First off, being a bartender ain’t a bad gig on its own. If you work at a chill spot, it’s basically like you’re drinking with your drinking with your buddies. But, if you had the opportunity to work at CGBG’s during the 80’s, you would’ve been privy to Beastie Boys, The Police and The Misfits! What else could you want?

2. Locker Room Attendant at The LA Forum (Late 1980s)
Hanging out with Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabar would be the definition of most peoples’ dream job, but there’s more to this one. Imagine all of the hilarious pranks you and the other attendants could play on the opposing team. Little bit of hydrochloric acid in your jock strap, Mr. Larry Bird?

3. Valet at the Playboy Mansion (1970s)
Being the most badass dude at the place with the hottest, most scantily clad women on the planet is pretty cool, but the amount of powerful people that you’d be able to blackmail with all of your inside info about their perverted sex lives… Priceless.

4. Game Designer at Nintendo (Mid 1990s)
This one would just be a hell of a lot of fun. You get to sit around with your buddies and think up characters for
Mario Kart. MARIO KART!

5. Waiter at Les Deux Magots (1920s)
At what other place are you going to see the likes of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce all chilling at the same spot? And, if you’re lucky, you might even get to see Hemingway hit somebody in the face!

6. Bouncer at Studio 54 (1970s)
Ah, the coke-fueled ultra orgy that was Studio 54. Bouncer would probably be a tough job at this place, but it would all be worth it to be one of the men behind the craziest party of all time.

7. Host at the Brown Derby (1950s)
The coolest part about being a host is that you get to decide whether or not people who are way more important, famous or powerful than yourself get a table. So the next time that James Dean walks into the place, you get to shut that mopey loser down.

8. Stage Crew at the Isle of Wight (1970)
Lugging heavy musical equipment does not sound like an ideal job, but, if it’s for some of the best musicians of all time (Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix, to name a few) you’d probably be willing to do some heavy lifting. And the silver lining is that you’ll get to hangout with all of the rock gods that pass through.

9. Marine Biologist on Jacque Cousteau’s Ship (1960s)
Making movies and studying sea animals is a pretty sweet gig. And with Cousteau, you and your fellow scientists could probably dream up a few awesome pranks to pull on the Frenchman. You know, mess with his statistical data and whatnot…
10. World of Warcraft Tester at Blizzard Entertainment (Late 2000s)
You get paid to play one of the most beloved video games of all time. ‘Nuff said.
