Feeling a bit bored with your job and fancy a change? Why not try one of these jobs out?

They're probably not to everyone's taste, but believe it or not, these are actually real jobs done by real people.

Here are the top 10 weirdest and Unusual jobs in the world:

Professional mourner

It is a tradition in South East Asia that a loud funeral will assist the dead as they travel to the afterlife, so professional mourners are hired to cry and week loudly throughout the service.

Armpit Sniffer

Deodorant manufacturers employ Armpit sniffers to smell different armpits before and after it is applied. The smell up to 60 armpits an hour to determine the effectiveness of their product. They are usually required to write reports in a hard exercise which is aimed at you smelling better.

Line Stander

For those people who do not like queuing, they have a perfect solution. They hire a professional line standard who will stand or queue on your behalf at a fee. They are paid per minute and often collect much per day.

Professional Pusher

Japan is indeed a hard working nation. It makes sure that all it's people reach work on time and that's why Japan has employed people to push others onto trains so that nobody's late for work.

Professional Sleeper

My first reaction when I came across this job was...Wow! You actually get paid to sleep! Professional Sleepers doze off while scientists conduct research on sleep disorders. This has to be undoubtedly the most comfortable job on the planet.

Body Part Model

You don't need to have the full supermodel package to earn a living from your appearance, many people are making good money by modelling just one standout feature.

Hand, foot and leg models are particularly popular but there is also a market for ear, hair, eyes and lips models. They may be used in photographic shoots for close up images of products such as jewellery, makeup, cosmetics, clothes and shoes.
