Career Day at a Palo Alto Middle School was enlivened by a speaker who urged students to consider stripping as a lucrative job option.
Salesman Bill Fried thought he was keeping it real when he told Palo Alto middle-schoolers at a career day this week that strippers can earn $250,000 a year — and $50,000 more for every two inches they expand their busts.
Kids were intrigued. Parents were not.
On a handout he made called “The Secret of a Happy Life,” Fried’s nuggets of advice include: “If your parents are chronic complainers, spend as little time with them as you can.”
OK, that’s good advice.
The handout alphabetically lists over 100 careers, including “exotic dancing” and “stripper.” Other options include: pistol shooting, Texas Hold ‘Em (poker), philately (stamp collecting) and palmistry.
Surely most of those are hobbies, not careers.
