Professional TV Watcher

Jimmy Kimmel has initiated a search for the laziest person in America:
Do you love television? Do you love watching television? Well, how would you like the chance to get paid to watch it ALL DAY LONG? This is not a dream. This is real. You can earn big bucks in the high-growth, fast-paced world of watching TV... Be a professional TV watcher! It's the job you were born to do. [link]
Remember, this stuff is beamed all over Planet Earth. So don't tell me that it doesn't color other cultures' opinions of folks and life in the U.S. On top of that, those very same TV signals are carried out into space as well. So if you have been wondering why we have not been contacted by sentient life from another galaxy, wonder no more. It's Jimmy's fault. (And it's JR's fault that I know about this story.)

I actually bet that job is hard work - Imagine how bored you'd get watching TV every day; and the pressure to find funny stuff!

You have to ask yourself the same question you should always ask when considering a job - why did the last guy quit?

-the infamous JR!

Ah, but this is a brand new position. So I guess the question is, "Do you want to be the first one to quit (or be fired from) this position?"
