If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? That's a game played in houses all over the country on a Friday when your overriding urge is to fill your arachnophobic boss' office with spiders. The people at Vouchercloud have taken it one step further and found out what our fantasy job would be. So far, so doing the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs on the Millennium Falcon.
Then it all goes a bit wrong because the people conducting the survey just let those they asked to pick from a list. They didn't even have to think of anything. The results make things even more depressing because the number 1 FANTASY job isssssss.... Minion.
That's right, a minion, the dictionary definition of which means a servile follower. Laaaads, that's just depressing. It also goes to show that marketing really works. Well done to the people at universal studios and huge commiserations for the future of imagination and, indeed, the world.
As an aside, I also discovered today that there is a minion dictionary. Someone loves them so much that they took the time to do this. Fair play.
Back to fantasy jobs. Here's the top 10:
2. HOGWARTS PROFESSOR
4. DINOSAUR TRAINER
5. TIME TRAVELLER
6. GREEK GOD
7. TOOTH FAIRY
8. FAIRY GODMOTHER
9. JEDI KNIGHT
10. VAMPIRE SLAYER
A minion came ahead of being a Jedi. I despair.
We had a chat about it earlier on.
Just in case you can't see yourself in any of these roles, I have visual aids.
Ray as Wolverine. Uncanny.
JP as Professor Snape. Look at him there, mad to impart his knowledge.
And this is as close as I'll get to my teenage dream of being a vampire slayer and it's not even Angel in the picture, goddamnit.
The photoshopping skills. Don't hate.
