I Want to be a Jester

After an exhaustive compilation of results from the Briggs-Myers typological questionnaire and various other psychometric and aptitude tests I have taken these results and fused them with the chicken and egg question to derive career guidance.

They have determined that I should pursue the Court Jester profession.

Good choice!

I like this profession as I believe there will be very little competition during the job application process. I’m especially looking forward to the behavioral interviewing sessions.

Interviewer: “Give me an example of a situation where you employed “uttering like a fool” techniques when conversing on controversial subject matter in order to benefit the discussions of a political nature.”

VE: “Could you repeat the middle part again?”

Think of all the fun you could have in the Supreme Court alone? Hanging out and heckling the judges during Roe vs. Wade trials.

VE: “Hey, I heard Bush has no position on Roe vs. Wade…I mean he didn’t care how people got out of New Orleans; either way was fine! Ha Ha Ha!”

Or maybe prance around John Roberts in an apron and a wig. The fun and subtle possibilities are endless (click here if you didn't get this). Anything to lighten the mood a bit! You know…these murder trials and such…they’re just so serious!

There are some downsides of becoming a Court Jester:

- Trendy jester fashion has to be custom ordered.
- One can feel out-of-place wearing the proper work attire enroute to work
- There has been only one English court jester appointed in the last 360 years

But I will not let that deter me.

In fact, I think we can expand the Jester role into the corporate world. Imagine an entire Jester department serving the largest politically-entrenched corporations! There you are setting up a meeting. “Let’s see, I need an audio-visual unit, refreshments, and a corporate jester”.

I mean, look how important this jester looks as he heads to his corporate meeting!

Wouldn’t that be fun to sit in senior management meetings going, “Are you joking? Did you think that up all by yourself?” or perhaps “OMG, did you and some committee make up that ridiculous process?” How fun of a job would that be?

Oh, and another perk is that your lunch will fit conveniently inside your hat!

Did you write that Roe v. Wade joke?

Ed said...

Sorry Kurt...that has been floating around for awhile and I have no idea whom to credit. I really don't do political humor; but it fit my theme so I went with it since I needed something. The apron one was idea. Pretty much all my posts are original or at least 99% original. Some fillers are added for effect and I steal photos for my own use all the time.

What would a court jester wear to work on casual Fridays?
Me thinks that a jester would fit in nicely at weddings and funerals as well. Them be events that could use a little comedic reality check.

Sounds like a good gig to me. The perks aren't half bad, either.:)

Court jesters amuse me. By having their entrails torn out.

Camille Alexa said...

You'd cut a fine figure in that kooky hat. Quite suave.

Nessa said...

We should bring back court jesters. As a matter of fact, you should start a court jester supply company, Jests-R-Us, or Jesters By Ronco, or I Jest You Not, Not.
