Setting aside several hours to sample every bacon-filled item on the Farmer Boys menu may already sound like the perfect day to meat lovers. As Thrillist reports, the Southern California restaurant chain has found a way to make that scenario even more enticing: In exchange for one day of taste-testing every one of the eatery's bacon-filled dishes, Farmer Boys will pay its bacon intern $1000.

Farmer Boys is known for its bacon-forward menu. The restaurant's Farmer's Burger, Bacon Boy Cheeseburger, and Farmer's Chopped Cobb Salad all contain the beloved breakfast meat. For a full day, the new bacon intern will sample all of those items and judge the bacon they taste on qualities like flavor and thickness. They will also have the opportunity to try bacon-centric items that are still in development.

“At Farmer Boys, we’re firm believers in customer feedback and listening to our guests, and we felt that hiring our first ever Bacon Intern would add another layer to that philosophy and help make our food as pork-tacular as it can be," Farmers Boys Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Larry Rusinko said in a press release.

If this sounds like the job you were born to do, you can apply by uploading a photo or video to your personal Instagram account pitching yourself for the position. Tag @farmerboysfood and use the hashtag #farmerboysbaconintern to make sure your application is seen by the right people.

Prospective candidates have until August 20 to make their case. After the winner is announced on August 27, they will be responsible for getting themselves to Southern California, where the gig is located, to participate in this lucrative bacon binge.

Do you often cancel your plans to have a binge-watch session of Friends? Are you known to randomly drop some classic Joey Tribbiani quotes into your daily conversations? Then do we have the job for you: FrontierBundles.com is offering to pay one diehard fan $1000 just to watch 25 hours of the show.

This isn’t the first Friends tie-in in recent memory. Movie theaters will be hosting a Friends marathon and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will be selling Central Perk coffee in celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary. Now you can join in on the fun from the comfort of your very own couch—and actually get paid to do what you were probably doing anyway.

So how do you participate? It’s fairly simple. The company is asking you to watch 25 hours of the show (easy!), which is about 60 episodes, before September 22. While watching, you’ll also be live-tweeting your experience, along with posting a photo to Twitter when you’re all done. Make sure to tag @FrontierCorp in your tweets and you’ll be fully in the running to get the cash!

In addition to the $1000, FrontierBundles.com is also offering a year-long subscription to Netflix (or a Visa card if you already have one), and a “Friends Fandom Fun Pack” which includes a T-shirt, mug, and more.

You must be 18 years or older and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to apply, and you can do so here.

Your pet may not work a 9 to 5 job or have bills to pay, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve a vacation. As House Beautiful reports, Hotels.com is giving one lucky dog the chance to take a 10-day tour of some of the most luxurious pet-friendly hotels around the world—and if your dog wins the contest, you get to tag along, too.

The hotel-booking service recently posted a listing in search of its "first ever hotel Canine Critic." In an effort to compile a list of the best hotels for pets, Hotels.com is sending one dog and its owner to the hotels of their choice for 10 nights. Winners can choose to spend their whole vacation at one perfect spot or take the opportunity to test out lodgings in different locations across the globe. The prize consists of 10 vouchers from Hotels.com valued at $200 each, and the winners get to decide how to use them.

The pampered pooch who's selected will be tasked with seeing if the pet-friendly amenities and accommodations at various hotels meet their standards. Some examples of features at the most popular pet-friendly hotels in America include special dog food menus, "pawlates" classes, and canine massages. Meanwhile, their owner will be free to enjoy any luxuries designed for humans the hotels have to offer.

To enter your pet in the running for the gig of a lifetime, upload the cutest photo or video of them you have and tag @Hotelsdotcom and #CanineCritic in the caption. Follow @Hotelsdotcom on Instagram to make sure your submission is considered. The deadline to enter the contest is August 25, and the winner will be contacted via a direct message on Instagram no later than September 18.
