How many of us would volunteer for a job that doesn’t require you to do anything at all except standing still?? I guess 90% of us would jump at this offer of not having to do anything at all!! But yes, there is a catch, you will have to get your face & sometimes hair painted!! So, there you go 50% of us have already backed out of the job!! And perhaps also have to wear a dress as if you are going for a fancy dress competition. Another 40% of those remaining also are planning to drop out!! And when the final condition is revealed I guess we won’t have any more volunteers!! For the last condition is that – you will have to stand motionless & emotionless – like a statue for over an hour at a time.
