A company in the United Kingdom, is looking to hire people who are willing to be shot by paintball guns.
UKPaintball said that 10,000 people from around the world have applied to become a paintball bullet tester after advertising an open position.
UKPaintball, which has over 60 paintball locations in the United Kingdom, said that they were surprised by the huge response.
People from the U.S., Canada, and India, have applied for the 40,000 pound ($61,000) a year job. “I cannot believe that people are willing to be shot for a living,” Justin Toohig, the owner of UKPaintball, said.
One fat applicant said that he would be a perfect candidate for the job because it would be easier to hit him.
Toohig said that it will take a long time to go over the 10,000 applications, and that it would be hard to choose the right candidate from such a large pool of people.
