Employees Describe Their Perfectly Legal Jobs So They Sound Totally Illegal, And We're Shook

Linguistics is a fascinating thing. Something can be denotatively the same but connotatively different, ie. the difference between a butt dial and a booty call. So when you change a few words about your job, it sounds so sketchy that you can't help but shudder.


u/weird_sex_stuff asked:

How can you describe your legal, legitimate job so it sounds illegal or sketchy?

See if you can guess what these jobs are.

A Truck In The Night

Giphy

I usually park my truck in alleyways in the middle of the night and deliver my product to my customers. No one there but me. Have keys to the buildings. Once im done, I lock it up and leave. No one sees me come or go. Easy transactions. Except when the cops show up.

I teach people (some as young as 18) how to lie a person on a table and touch their naked body in all the right ways, then collect money for it.

In These Skies

People pay me through an intermediary to make quick getaways. And I mean super quick. I break boundaries that governed man for millennia, that's how quick I go.

I don't ask any questions, hell most of the time I never even see them.

Up In Flames

Giphy

My coworkers and I break into people's homes any time, day or night, and try to find where they and their kids might be hiding. When we find them, we forcefully drag then out of their home. And they usually thank us for it after.

La Vie En Rose

People pay me to tactically burn animals. I do it fast, I do it well, and I yell as loud as possible to let you know when your flesh is done burning. Sometimes I give them raw flesh with a raw egg on top. Sometimes I make people eat snails, and live octopus. They pay me to do this. I'm really good at cutting apart whole animals with a series of knives I carry at all times, as well. You got a dead animal? I'll cut that it up, grind it, and stuff it back inside its own innards, then let it sit room temperature for f---ing weeks until it grows mold. You people love it, and you pay me a premium.

French food is terrifying when broken down like this.

Arrests were made on Wednesday night when an appearance by Ann Coulter turned into a protest rally.

The protest lasted for over four hours, outside of Wheeler Hall at UC Berkley where she was scheduled to give a speech on immigration.

Coulter is a notoriously conservative media pundit.

The event, entitled "Adios, America!" was a discussion on the "current United States immigration system and the dangers of mass immigration," according to Daily Beast.

She is known for spewing anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric, so it is no surprise that the talk included more of same ideas.

Skylar Schoemig of The Daily Californian Tweeted out quotes from the speech.



Barricades and police in riot gear guarded the building as Coulter was escorted into the event.


Demonstrators chanted "Ann Coulter go away, immigrants are here to stay" and "this is what democracy looks like" as she walked in.


Protestors also formed a human chain to prevent ticket holders from entering the event.



Moments after Coulter entered the Wheeler Hall auditorium, an attendee called her a "Nazi."

That woman was Brandy Youssif, a student from Berkeley City College.

Youssif was quickly handcuffed and dragged out of the room. According to police and school officials, she was one of six or seven people who were arrested.

Newsweek reported that she was given assault charges, with her bail set to $60,000.

Refuse Fascism, the protest's organizer, is calling for Youssif's release.

Atlas Winfrey, a Refuse Fascism protest organizer, estimated that 2,000 people at the protest.

Winfrey believes that more protests will take place in response to the arrests that were made.

It's not the first time that Coulter's presence has lead to a protest at the college.

In 2017, UC Berkley cancelled her scheduled appearance on the campus after officials feared they wouldn't be able to secure the speech site from demonstrators.

People on Twitter expressed confusion over why she was invited back to the school.





Others praised the students for taking a stand against Coulter and UC Berkeley.


Jack, a UC Berkeley Freshman, expressed his disappointment over the event to Berkleyside.

"It's even more appalling because today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. I'm here to represent my community as a queer and trans student. It's appalling that the administration would even consider having someone with extremely hateful rhetoric."

As of yet, UC Berkeley has not made a statement about the controversy.
