That does sound like a horrible job.

Could you imagine being the barber that had to hold and control the hyena clippers every time Tor came in and asked for "a little off the top?"  They probably tipped horribly in those days too.

To be fair, we're talking about fossilized feces.  I think that'd be a lot easier to handle than the non-fossilized kind.

Coprolite inspector. It's not a glamorous job, but it's a job.

I think "pre-historic hyena taunter" was the previous worst job.

So I guess it says a lot about my job that I think discovering ancient human hair in fossilised poo is awesome? Or are you all just cynical!?

This. We have a basset hound still struggling with house training, and he got into the leftover peppers from Kung Pao Chicken one night. Some accidents have been so gross we had to wait for it to at least not be not AND pudding soft. It also has a spectacularly bad smell.

We had a Borzoi (Similar to a Greyhound) who once got into the pantry and ate an entire bag of prunes.  He shiat all over the house.  There was almost no rug or piece of furniture without shiat on it somewhere.  It was awful.

My friends dog ate three little party-bags made of plastic mesh, that were full of those chalky sugar candies you get for Valentines day. The packages had a little plastic, silvery "thankyou" tag attached to it. So when the time came, the doggie was leaving little gift wrapped packages of dog mess, with little thankyous written into the side.

They didn't have Charmin back then and they were total badasses.  I'll let you figure out the rest.

At the risk of being That Guy:

I'm saddened but not surprised to see Discovery.com is apparently hiring 16 year old high schoolers to write their news articles.  Pleased however, to see it wasn't typed all "hYen4 P00p, OMG gR0ZZ thur H4re in it LOL"

My niece used to work for San Diego Zoo.  She stopped off in DC, from a trip to England (and a zoo there) with a Mountain Gorilla sperm specimen that had to be kept in my freezer.  When asked if it came from the British Zoo, she told me that it had been "captured" in the wild in Africa and forwarded to the English Zoo who thought the quickest way to get it to San Diego was with her.

I kept thinking about what kind of person could not only trap a Silver Back in the mountains of Africa, but get a sperm sample from him to boot?   I knew I didn't want to mess with them that was for certain.

I hate it when I rush into a bathroom stall and don't check out the supplies before I download, then have to ask the caveman next to me to shove a Hyena under the wall, please.

Our Basset ate my wife's spare dentures once.  Nobody informed me of this in advance, I only discovered it when I was out doing my "Owners Duty" and one of the piles had teeth in it.

One day I came home from a shopping trip with my ex. I go up to the back door, open it, look at the kitchen, close it, and turn around. My ex inquires why, rather irate, and I said "there is wall-to-wall diarrhea on the kitchen floor". He thinks that I am exaggerating. So he goes past me, opens the door, and sees the trail across every open tile in the kitchen. I mean, you could trace the path... I was impressed, and immediately had this image of the dog hunched over, ruining my evening, yet still walking across every tile... heading toward the dining room, knowing he is in deep shiat, but doing it anyway.

/talent, that dog had

Luxury...says the guys jacking off Turkeys for artificial turkey insemination
 
2013-09-30 06:29:02 PM
One of my ferrets got up on the counter and pushed a big jug of red licorice off when I was out of town once. I got back and was regaled with tales of "explosive red diarrhea". The baseboards were still stained. Luckily it didn't seem to do him any harm.

We also found multiple sticks of licorice squirreled away all over the kitchen, including a dozen sticks in a drawer he could only hace reached by climbing up the back of the lower drawers. He never went in that drawer before or after, but I guess he was so hopped up on sugar that repeatedly climbing up there with a stick or two in his mouth seemed like a good idea.

We think ours might seriously have eaten the Apple TV remote. If he did it hasn't passed. But he carried it off to one of his stashes a few times early on and then it just completely vanished. We haven't seen it in months.
