OT Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel
OK how many of y'all watch this show really. Here's a little poll to find out.

I like to watch to see all the different jobs he ends up doing, there are some that I just cannot believe he did (like when he was checking cows to see if they were pregnant! ) I have yet to see him draw the line, there has got to be something he won't do, I just wonder what?

This show is on our season pass.. dh started watching it and then I started watching it with him... we watch cause Mike Rowe is funny and its interesting to see the dirty jobs that I think we tend to forget people do... and need them to do...

I'm more into Mike Rowe than the dirty jobs. There's just something about a guy with a sense of humor that gets me everytime.
I do like learning about the jobs though and my husband likes that aspect so I guess it's a win win situation.

I've only seen it a few times but its really interesting to see some things that are actually people's jobs. I never would've thought of some of those gross things!
