Are you looking for a career that's as glamorous as engineering?
- Do you crave the giddy thrills akin to chartered accountancy?
- Perhaps you envy the public acclaim and affection given to economists?
- One career offers all this, and with a salary comparable to top Hollywood stars!
- Yes - SCIENCE!
But wait! There's more!
What is a Renowned Scientist?
Categories include Most Taxpayers Money Spent Digging Holes in the Ground to Study Remote Stars, Most Small Animals Harmed (Physically or Psychologically) in the Production of Flawed Medicines, the always popular Swimwear Category, and of course, Most Self-Serving Appearances on Public Television!
Initiated in 1603 by Alfred Nobel's embittered half-brother Ian Nobel, the award confers a nasty faux-silver trophy, a postal order for £7, and of course world wide fame and glory!
Past recipients include the 3rd Viscount Trenchard and Erik von Daniken.
edit Dave Trenchard, 3rd Viscount Trenchard
Renowned Scientist and Spelunker, Dave Trenchard was tutor to the young Thomas Babington Macaulay Jr. and discoverer of "Special" Forces.
It is also rumoured that he was involved in the assassination of Ludwig IX of Belgravia.
edit Erik von Daniken
Renowned Scientist Erik von Daniken is perhaps the world's leading expert in the field of arbitrary meaningless furrows, a medical condition often contracted by South American science fiction fans!!!
It was his discovery that Internet fan fiction is 3.754 times more noxious than a standard Jeffrey Archer novel, and invented a new scale for measuring the harmful effects of bad writing. For example, a gay erotic Star Trek story measures 2.3 Kane and Abels on the von Daniken scale.
Curiously, the phrase "Renowned Scientist Erik von Daniken" appears nowhere else in the holy scriptures of the Interweb.
