Park In England Will Pay Winning Job Candidate To Be Lazy

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. You've seen people paid to stand by the highway holding a sign. It doesn't look easy twirling that sign in all weather and pollution. A park in England offers a more relaxing job. The ad says you must, quote, "be able to sit around and act lazy." The job is to wear a panda suit because the park has no pandas. The ad says a successful candidate will be colorblind, wild at heart and be comfortable wearing a warm, thick coat all day. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
