Can you imagine some of the strangest jobs in history? The executioner job seems really creepy, but what about the guys who had to clean up after the executioner? Guillotine maintenance specialist??? I imagine the description being something along the lines of… keep the pullies well oiled, keep the wood clean and waxed, keep the blade sharp and clean, and, of course, always remember to empty the basket after use. Somehow, I feel this last instruction would have been necessary. Ok, so I’m making a huge assumption that these maintenance specialists weren’t hired for their brains, but it does add to the story, don’t you think? I wonder how often they forgot to check the basket.
