Are you kidding me?

Are you fucking kidding me?!?

Sign my ass nine thousand kinds of UP!

The government of Queensland, Australia is offering what it calls “the best job in the world” — earning a top salary for lazing around a beautiful tropical island for six months.
::: I could do that! ::: 

captphoto_1231816541838-1-0The job pays 105,000 US dollars and includes free airfares from the winner’s home country to Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef.
::: I could take that! :::  

In return, the “island caretaker” will be expected to stroll the white sands, snorkel the reef, take care of “a few minor tasks” — and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates. The person will stay rent-free in a three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, must be a good swimmer, excellent communicator and be able to speak and write English.
::: I am sooo qualified!! ::: 

Queensland Tourism Minister Desley Boyle said some people might question whether it was risky to let an unknown person become an unofficial tourism spokesperson for the state.

“I think the biggest risk will be that the successful candidate won’t want to go home at the end of the six months,” she said. “This is a legitimate job which is open to anyone and everyone.”

BBRB … gotta update the rez!

    Wow! That’s awesome! At first, with the title, I thought you were showing us a picture of a weather map and a hurricane. LOL

    But, that’s awesome!! At least if they hired YOU, everyone would know they were getting an honest report and not some cock-a-meme… uhm……. I can’t think of the right word. Cock-a-meme threw me off.
