A circus is looking to hire some clowns, and I'm sure you've just thought of a bunch of people you know who would be a perfect fit... I know I did.
Tom Duffy's Circus in Ireland is looking to fill numerous roles, one of which is for clowns who 'must be hilarious' as 'no old jokes accepted' - well, that discounts those people I was thinking of, sadly.
With coronavirus restrictions lifting, Tom Duffy's Circus is gearing up to get back on the road visiting towns and cities across Ireland, and has now advertised several vacancies to ensure it is fully staffed before setting off.
As well as clowns, the circus is also looking for HGV drivers, but they might have to join the queue given that there's a bit of a shortage at the minute.
If you don't see yourself as a clown or behind the wheel of a heavy good vehicle, then the company is also hiring mechanics, billers, electricians and 'general circus operatives' if that's more your thing.
The job advert does state that it would prefer candidates who have previous relevant experience in whichever role they are applying for, with the exception of the clowns who are only required to be 'hilarious'.
The post, shared on Facebook, adds: "For most of the posts we can provide good quality accommodation and a fun working environment, with the opportunity to see every county in the country."
Well, what could be more fun than working at the circus, eh? Unless you happen to have coulrophobia of course.
But beware, it doesn't sound like a place for the faint-hearted, as the award-winning circus features the delightfully named Wheel of Death, which sees brothers Tom and Jamie run, jump and skip as the huge wheel revolves faster and faster.
According to the circus' website: "There are screams and many members of the audience can only watch through their fingers."
Well, that sounds terrifying - you can count me out.
