Earn $100,000 Watching ‘Dukes Of Hazzard’ Reruns

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – How’d you like to earn $100,000 a year watching Dukes Of Hazzard reruns?

That’s how much Country Music Television is willing to pay to the lucky man or woman who is hired as the “vice- president of the CMT Dukes of Hazzard Institute.”

The year-long position is open to any couch potato who knows the words to the show’s theme song, “Good Ol’ Boys,” and all sorts of arcane trivia about the classic 1970s show.

In exchange for a $100,000 salary, the couch potato chosen for the job will be required to watch Dukes Of Hazzard twice a day and keep a blog on the CMT website; as well as make appearances at various fan fests around the country.

Some of the sample questions asked of aspiring Duke-watchers include stumpers like, “If Waylon Jennings had written your theme song, what would be the title and chorus?”

It should be a tough battle. Former cast member Ben Jones – who played “Cooter” – says he’s met fans who know details like “the license plate on a car that flashed by for a second in one episode.”
