Artisanal pencil sharpeners. No, I’m not kidding.


According to Holiday Matinee, this is not a joke.

“When I was working for the 2010 census, we were each issued No. 2 pencils and a manual sharpener. We all sharpened our pencils on the first day of training, and I was like, ‘I’m feeling this. This rules. I like sharpening pencils.’ It had been a while since I had done it. And the more I thought about it, the more I was like, ‘If I could figure out how to get paid to sharpen pencils, I would be happy.’ So I decided to become an artisanal pencil sharpener.”

You can get a new pencil, professionally sharpened for just $17.
