Part-Time Wizard

World Wide Interweb has found an amazing collection of job titles flashed on screen for various news stories and TV documentaries. “Freelance Sperm Donor”? “Bride Kidnapping Expert”? If it exists, it can be a job. Which means, wizards do exist (they do exist!). [via]

This is amazing.

@Molly Minturn Wolfe@facebook I have sent it to everybody I know! The Louis CK one is kind of cheating, though (it’s from a fake Fox News scene on his tv show, not a real Fox News screencap).

Goddamit I don’t have the beard to be a wizard. :(

@Megano! Are you really bad at basketball? You could be a Washington Wizard!

Alan Moore is a really well known and well respected graphic novelist (presumably y’all have heard of Watchmen. Also V for Vendetta. Also From Hell). Why are they calling him a part time wizard? And yes his beard is that crazy.

@TheDilettantista I think he usually calls himself a magician, but that’s not a made-up thing.

@TheDilettantista Oh! I know who Alan Moore is! I didn’t realize that was him in the screencap. Totally different than what I was imagining.

TheDilettantista (#1,255)

@Mike Dang He totally looks like a Murder Santa doesn’t he? He’s pretty misanthropic and hates Hollywood because they ruin his masterpieces. I don’t really know what he looks like but I know he has a GIANT BEARD so that made the connection for me (well and Google image-search but whatevs).

TheDilettantista (#1,255)

@thatgirl HE IS SUCH A MAGICIAN. I re-read Watchmen every few years and my reaction is typically “This keeps getting more perfect.” That tends to be my reaction when I reread Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” too.

@TheDilettantista fairly sure it’s a screencap from a comedy programme? he’s appeared on stewart lee’s comedy vehicle a few times (which is bbc-based and capable of doing spoof news stuff if they feel like it)

Where’s the WIZARDS tag?

Mike Dang (#2)

@Brunhilde I added one, just for you!

@Brunhilde … have you seen Django Unchained?

bgprincipessa (#699)

@bgprincipessa Oh that was Broomhilda. I’m sorry.

They should make a game where they only show you the person’s face and you have to guess their job title.

I mean the “Pornography Expert” one is pretty easy…

@stuffisthings Oh and the Mindanao Independent Liberation Front has long been my favorite rebel group name. Glad to see it getting some recognition for this stupid reason.

Additionally how do I become a penguinologist? That’s the best job right there.
