SCIENTISTS are puzzled by a man whose job is both fairly paid and does not fill him with dread every morning.
43-year-old Tom Logan has confounded experts by having full-time employment that is not fundamentally a heap of shit.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “We believed that the non-shit job was made obsolete in 1968, but Tom seems perfectly happy and even whistles while preparing his sandwiches.
“Meanwhile we are working to find out exactly what he does, but it involves leaving the house on his bike at 8.45am. Possibly it’s gardening, but maybe with a bit of science stuff thrown in to keep it interesting.”
All aspects of Logan’s unique life are being analysed, including him not being massively in debt or consumed by feelings of wasting his life.
Brubaker added: “His manager, Ken, is a normal, decent person who does not get a pathetic ego trip from constantly giving his underlings pointless tasks.
“The strangest thing is that Tom can afford a modest mortgage, when really he should be struggling to rent a box room in a house full of disappointed strangers.
“If we can work out why Tom leads such a charmed existence we may be able to replicate it in the wider world. I emphasise ‘may’ because it’s probably a weird anomaly, like a two-headed snail or one of those carrots that looks like a person.”
