15 of the Weirdest Jobs We’ve Ever Heard Of

Donald Schultz Spends 10 Days With 100 Snakes Outside O'Sheas Casino

Snake Milker

I hate snakes so much that I actually questioned putting this profession on the list, but hey, it is certainly one of the weirdest jobs I’ve ever heard of, so here I go. These crazy folks who are snake milers actually extract a snake’s venom by hand by very gently exposing a snake’s fang and squeezing out the juices, thereby “milking” the snake. You could not pay me enough money in the world to do that job. Seriously, not even like $100 million salary would convince me to. That’s not just weird – being a snake miler’s straight up insane.
