    The Associated Press: Australia offers up 'best job': lounge in paradise

    SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — Position: Island caretaker. Duties: Lazing around Australia's Great Barrier Reef for six months. Salary: 150,000 Australian dollars ($100,000).
    Unemployed, take heart — the aforementioned job ad is for real. Billing it the "Best Job in the World," the tourism department in Australia's Queensland state on Tuesday said it was seeking one lucky person to spend half a year relaxing on Hamilton Island, part of the country's Whitsunday Islands, while promoting the island on a blog.
    The move is part of a AU$1.7 million campaign to boost tourism in the state. In exchange for the plush salary, free accommodation in an oceanfront villa and airfare from the winner's home country, the "employee" will be required to stroll the island's white sand beaches, snorkel, maybe take a dip in the pool — and post photos and videos of his or her experiences on a weekly blog.
    "It'll be huge," Tourism Whitsundays chief executive Peter O'Reilly said, adding he expected thousands will apply.
    Applications are open until Feb. 22 and 11 finalists will be flown to Hamilton Island in May for the final selection process. The job begins on July 1.

    haha. My girlfriend applied me to this yesterday.

    Her response: "You've always wanted to live in an abandoned island, and this way you get paid too. Plus you get to take pictures and brag about it. "

    Secret plot to get rid of me? Only time will tell......

    They probably want some muscle ripped, surfing, "ladies man" looking dude. Or some supermodel looking chick with the perfect everything. If I was going to hire someone for that salary and job, I would want it to be someone that would attract people with their looks as well as their ability to write persuasively.

    Nothing like looking at a person on a beach walking towards you with a FUPA, 3 nipples, and an ass that doesn't quit.

    I could go and bulk up from 6'0", 120lbs to 160+lbs, all muscle! Nothing to do but work out all day, I could do it no problem. Daily blogs on progress, diet and exercise routines, progress pictures, charts and graphs, the whole nine yards.

    The hook: Come to the Barrier Reef! It will transform you!

    I'm automatically disqualified, so I need not apply. If I was to step on a beach, people would harpoon me. Not to mention my white legs would be blinding.

    Fat guys + Banana Hammocks = :thumbsdown:

    Six foot and only 120? I'll buy you a steak if you ever come up to my neck of the woods.

    I'm in.

    I just need a tan.

    Doubley on buying DarkHand a steak. Not only does he possess a wildly creative imagination but he also is tall and lanky to play the part extra well.

    I should apply, I might get a tan by just applying. Other than that i would just go out at night so i don't ignite.

    Yah for being pale!
