Domino's Pizza in Japan offers insane part-time job

Need a job? Move to Japan now. Domino's announced they'll be hiring someone for a one-hour job. The pay? A mere $31,000.

They haven't announced any other details aside from the future employee needs neither pizza experience or education -- only that they be over the age of 18. It's part of the marketing buzz around the 25th anniversary of the Japanese Domino's. More details will be announced Nov. 10.

Before you pack your bags, though, consider the fact that Japan also has a bizarre interest in eating contests and in game shows that usually require some form of bodily harm inflicted on the participant.

So that $31,000 might sound alluring right now, but you might have to eat pizza for the entire hour while running some extreme obstacle course involving huge battering rams and at least two water traps.

(Thank you SO much, Amanda!)
