BBC has just sacked their biggest global star, Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, following his "unprovoked physical and verbal attack" on a colleague. BBC director general Tony Hall said the decision was a difficult one, but Clarkson crossed the line and there was no other way through it. Clarkson joined Top Gear in 1988 when it was a dull and unpopular car programme and turned it into the most popular factual TV show in the world with the global audience of 350 million.
Show what new job offers Jeremy Clarkson may (or may not) accept, and what products and services he may promote now.
The Labor Day weekend is just three days away. Even though some of us will be working on Labor Day, we should still be thankful for our jobs. Labor Day is meant to honor labor and jobs of American people who work hard and contribute to well-being and prosperity of the nation. Sadly, average standard annual leave in the US is just 12 days which is one of the lowest in the world. In most European countries annual leave is more than twice as long (e.g. 33 days in Sweden, 32 days in the Netherlands, 29 days in Germany).
In this contest you are asked to create a satirical "honest" advertisement for any job in the world (good, bad, or absolutely worst). Advertisement can be in any printed format - newspaper, magazine, billboard, or even a printed sheet of paper glued to a street pole. The job advertisement can include what normal job adverts include - job title, description, hours, pay, benefits, requirements, and contact information. Advertised job positions can be real, or made up, but your advert has to include a satire in it, and should be more than just a text advert. Please note that you may need to pause any ad-blockers in order to view all entries in this contest (because most ad blockers will block any images which have variations of the word "advertisement" in their titles).

President Obama made a surprise announcement last Friday that White House press secretary Jay Carney was stepping down and would be replaced by his deputy Josh Earnest. We've certainly seen a lot of Jay Carney while he's been on this job for three years, and now he's let go. The official reason has not been stated, nor the Carney's plans on what he will do next. Carney previously worked as a press secretary for Joe Biden before being promoted to White House press secretary.
Find the next employment for Jay Carney. Alternatively, show him in his retirement or unemployment status.

David Letterman, the grandfather of the American late night television, announced that he will be retiring from the Late Show in the next several months. CBS picked Stephen Colbert to take over the show. Letterman turned turned 67 on April 12, and said he's thankful to his fans and CBS for many years of hosting the Late Show. After the staff sex scandal in 2009, he was suffering from depression, but managed to go back being himself, the true Letterman we knew and loved many years ago. So, for all those late nights, thanks Dave. It's been great.
Will Letterman be getting any job offers after his departure from the Late Show? Photoshop Letterman's next job or show what he'll be doing in his retirement.

This Thursday, Jay Leno, 63, will host his last "Tonight" show, and will hand over the job to Jimmy Fallon, 39. Leno has had this job for 22 years, apart from the half year break in 2009 when NBC replaced him with Conan O'Brian but quickly asked him back after the ratings plummeted. Apparently, this time the NBC's decision to push out Leno is final - despite the all-time high show ratings under Leno, NBC wants to make a shift from the boomers audience to a younger generation viewers, so they picked younger Jimmy Fallon as a replacement.
Now that Jay Leno is pushed out of the job he's had for 22 years, what will he do next? Photoshop Leno's next job, or hobby. (Or maybe he'll just retire? We hope not!)
