That’s the basic job description for human scarecrows — and it sounds a whole lot better than being paid to be a tin man.

Jamie Fox, for example, finished college last year and after graduation was hired to wear an orange coat and use an accordion and cowbell to chase off partridges from a farmer’s field.

According to The Huffington Post, workers at the Beijing Capital International Airport also work to keep birds away from the runways — although there’s no cowbell involved for that version of this odd job.
