Dirty Jobs is Getting the Boot

Living in Montana, we have our share of labor intensive jobs. There are a lot of hard working men and women in this state who come home from work exhausted and filthy. From tire busters, to mechanics, to ranchers, to contractors, any one of these jobs would make for a great episode of Dirty Jobs. Maybe that is why we, and others all across America, identified with this show. Sadly, the show so many of us have watched and loved is being cancelled.

Yes, it is true that this is the last season of Dirty Jobs. I have been a fan of this show for years, and my boys love it too. They will even play their own version of Dirty Jobs when they are outside. Of course, this isn’t a huge stretch for them because they are dirty boys. Anything they can do to get muddy, stinky or just all around filthy, they will do.

This show was good clean (or should I say dirty) fun. It always made you feel good to know that someone else had a worse job than you. A job that was messier, smellier, hotter, scarier and even crazier than yours. You always wondered why would someone do that job? How much do they get paid to do that job? It can’t possibly be enough.

I never felt as bad for Mike as I did for the cameramen. Those poor guys were always squeezing into the tightest spaces, climbing into the darkest holes or scaling the tallest towers to get the perfect shot. The episodes where it showed exactly what the cameramen did, were probably the dirtiest ones of all.

I suppose that all good things must come to an end. I’m not sure that any show could ever replace it, nor any other host be quite as charming, or have as good an attitude about doing some of the worst jobs that most of us never even knew existed.
