Money talks, and its persuasive tone gets people to perform all kinds of strange things all in the name of the hustle.
Because money makes the world go around, there exists no shortage of strange ways people make money. While not necessarily the worst jobs in the world, the weird things people do for money usually involve less-than-ideal job requirements such as imbibing a gross substance, mild vandalism, and cleaning up people's bodily messes. Admittedly, some of the worst ways people make money qualify as dares rather than jobs, but hey, that's an untaxed business transaction right there.
Redditors went about sharing the stupidest things people did for money, and they do not fail to disappoint. Just like the strangest celebrity jobs, the weird ways people make money serve to remind everyone how far you've come. You can't control the weather, but with a weird side hustle you can always make it rain.

"In ninth grade I put a used condom I found outside a Sportscenter in my mouth for $100."
From Redditor /u/burstabcess:
"Used to help my dad's mate clean cars on weekends. He did the exterior, I did interior. One day I went inside a car and it looked like it had been snowing. In some places it was about five centimeters thick, but it was completely covering the whole car. I had no idea what it could be, so I was cleaning and cleaning, doing a very thorough job. When I was finally done, the owner appeared. He was morbidly obese and covered in scaly flakes of skin all over his body. I was inhaling that stuff. I vomited into the gutter and decided that this was the worst thing I had ever done for money."
From Redditor /u/topps_chrome:
"Let what I'm pretty sure was a homeless guy suck on my toes and lick my armpits."
From Redditor /u/Paddy_oh_Furniture:
"I let my friend zap me with a taser for $20. He upped it to $100 if I would let him do it until the battery died. I accepted. It took eight zaps."
