Australia's 'Best Job in the World'

From FoxNews.com:
"Desperate to snag what's being billed as the "Best Job in the World," thousands of people from across the globe have submitted video applications to the tourism department of Australia's Queensland state for their latest advertised vacancy — a $100,000 contract to relax on Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef for six months while writing a blog to promote the island."

This sounds good, but do people realize how dangerous Australia is? Box Jellyfish, Sharks, Jack Jumper Ants, Funnel Web Spiders, Scorpion Fish, Salt Water Crocs, and the world's deadliest snakes. No thanks. I like having to only worry about the Brown Recluse or maybe a Copperhead snake. Plus, I already have the best job in the world, though it don't pay the same the other benefits are awesome.

Made me think of our almost ten years in Australia and this song from The Scared Weird Little Guys (yes, that's their name and they are hilarious):
