Good News For the English Majors Out There

Hey new grads! Wishing you hadn't double majored in underwater basketweaving and Greek mythology now that you're hitting the job market and realizing an English degree is just a fancy way to say Starbucks barista in this shitty economy?

Worry not, there's hope yet. Have you considered scarecrowing with a ukelele? This dude is doing it. It's great... low stress, free uniforms and come on, your parents will be so proud to hear you're putting their money to good use by spending your days in a field serenading pesky birds with cowbells and accordions.

"I don't want to be a scarecrow forever but it is giving me time to decide what I will do with my future," said 22-year-old Jamie Fox, who studied music and English at Bangor University.

Now, in a normal economy, the four years you spend in college is the time when you're supposed to decide what to do with your life but hey, these aren't normal times right!

Get it, son! Mom and Dad must be so proud.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

There's no more underwater basketweaving.

The hugely popular new major is Grievance Studies.
