If asked to describe their dream job, how many people would say getting paid to play with puppies all day? That's never been a viable career option, however, so colleges don't offer any opportunities to study the elusive technique of spending a whole day petting, playing fetch, and running around.

A bar in Texas is changing everything. MUTTS Canine Cantina, a restaurant that allows owners to bring their dogs with them and play in their onsite dog parks, is offering one lucky applicant the chance to make $100 per hour for literally nothing but playing with dogs.

According to a press release sent to Bustle, the "Puptern's" responsibilities will include some pretty easy tasks:

"...roaming the small and large dog parks at the restaurant, playing with the customers' dogs, and enjoying the company of Dallas-Fort Worth's furriest bar-goers and their owners. MUTTS also plans to provide the Puptern with signature food and drinks."

Kyle Noonan, the co-founder of MUTTS Canine Cantina, wants to be explicitly clear...the Puptern's ONLY job is to play with dogs.

"We are looking forward to hiring our first ever Puptern. There aren't many opportunities out there that pay interns to strictly play with dogs all day long. Typically, there may be other responsibilities that come with the job, but not this one. I'd be lying if I said this is going to be one 'ruff' internship."

The application process is appropriately unusual for such a unique position. Applicants must follow @MuttsCantina on Instagram. Then, they must post a photo or video of themselves explaining why they deserve to be the Puptern and demonstrating their petting abilities, while tagging @muttscantina and using the hashtag #MUTTSpuptern.

Applicants must be 18 years old and willing/able to commute to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. MUTTS Cantina says they are flexible about scheduling and will reach out to the Instagram account of the winner after reviewing all submissions.

Needless to say, Twitter was interested in applying:

The submission process is open from Monday, October 29, through Monday, November 12. If you live around Dallas, be sure to apply! If you don't live around Dallas, make your moving plans and be sure to apply!

When was the first time you tried sushi? Or the first time you had curry? Have you even been able to try escargot? The world is full of so many fascinating foods, and some of those foods are American--especially to non-Americans.

Unfortunately, it's no secret that people are becoming the victims of human trafficking all around us.

The rule of thumb when eating fast food is very simple: put on the blinders, enjoy the meal, and try not to do it too often.

But what if you work in the kitchen?

In that case, there's simply no escaping a complete understanding of the several horrors that each assembled burger or french fry encounters on its way to that front counter.
