Sometimes you just can’t make up this stuff.  The Australian government is looking for a Tardis Operator.  Unfortunately, the government is only paying $65K a year on the low end; I guess the perks of traveling through time and space make up for the chump change salary.  Nowhere in the job description does it say anything about having to be a young cute female, or having to deal with Daleks on a regular basis.  Damn Daleks.

Thanks for the link Hercules!

    Y’all can’t read… Not the operator… The MANAGER. I suspect responsibilities include maintaining the TARDIS — keeping it fueled, polished, that sort of stuff — as well as recruiting cohorts for the current Dr., and also scheduling duties. You’ve got to make sure that only one Dr. is using the thing at a time, and I bet some of the older doctors get cranky about having to wait their turns… Anyway, when you realize the position is in management, the salary seems to fit the scale. ;)

    But seriously, I wonder what the TARDIS acronym is used for in this case…? Hmmm.. Google, here I come.

    Do I get the job? What if I throw in a life sized puzzle of a former 30th century hero killed by a crazy pirate?
