In China, You Can Get Paid A Nice Salary To Be A Professional Panda Hugger

That’s right. In China, being a professional panda caretaker is a real job offered by the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center. China Daily says,

“Your work has only one mission. Spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows. You need perseverance for this job. We expect that the applicants will be mainly white-collar workers from big cities. They are used to eating whatever they want, but inside the giant panda base, the choices will not be plentiful.”

In addition to getting to play with adorable pandas all day long, you also get paid around $32,000 USD a year, which can go quite a way in China. I don’t know about you, but where do I sign up?
