We asked award-winning comedian Jessica Delfino, pictured, to tell us about the dumbest job she ever had. Thankfully, the writer/performer of “My Pussy is Magic” and “I Wanna Be Famous” was happy to share her bizarre experience working at Google for a day. Private to Google: We can teach you how to light farts — call us!
What’s the dumbest job you’ve ever had?
I mean, if by “dumb” you mean I got paid a disturbingly large sum of money to teach 40 Google engineers to play the ukulele, then, yeah, that’d be it.
What’s the dumbest thing you had to do there?
They provided endless frozen piña coladas served in coconuts so the hardest part of my job was to simply try and stay sober.
What do you wish you were told before you took the job?
Engineers brains are far too big and filled with genius knowledge to give a rat’s ass about playing a G chord on the ukulele.
Anything else to share about your time there?
We ate a lunch that took over two hours at a just OK Mexican restaurant down the road which was a double waste, since Google has three private cafeterias stocked better than my paternal Grandmother’s liquor cabinet.
