Popular Science recently ranked anal wart researcher as the worst job in science. This ignores all non-scientific jobs, such as reporter or “provost.” If “provost” the occupation were anywhere near as unpleasant as the word itself, it would probably also involve warts.

An ex-friend of mine once spent a summer getting paid to taste-test ice cream. This also did not involve warts, as far as I know.
