I love Richard Scarry’s Busy, Busy Town, a classic children’s book (which inspired a cute TV show) where everyone is on their way to work. It has images of cats and pigs and hippos, with short job-title captions like “Grocer” and “Teacher” and “Firefighter” and “Garbage Truck Driver.” You remember it, right?
If the estate of Mr. Scarry ever chooses to issue a revised edition, I humbly suggest these career additions in honor of the new economy:
Uber Driver/Registered Sex Offender
Social Media Specialist
Fox News Pundit
Fox Football Robot
Cloud-based Data Storage Solutions Programmer
Intact Foreskin Activist
