A job that will tickle your funny bone

Want to bring in a little extra bacon over the holidays?

Archie McPhee’s warehouse in Mukilteo is hiring for two positions: unicorn wrangler and rubber chicken peddler.

The wrangler is McPhee-speak for a warehouse worker. The peddler is an admin assistant.

Among the requirements: Sense of humor. Appreciation of the absurd. Must love bacon.

This is, after all, the company that sells such items as unicorn horns for cats, bacon candy canes, bacon body wash, squirrel underpants, Shakespeare punching puppets, crazy cat lady bandages and exploding pickle candy.
