** He was positively delighted to learn that the hole on the sides of wine barrels is indeed called the [[BeavisAndButthead bunghole]] (twice over: once while actually making the barrels and once while making wine to put into them), and similarly pleased to hear that termite droppings are referred to as "frass."

** Sometimes crosses over with camera''man'' abuse (though usually not intentional) like how Troy got his hair caught in the pull line half way up a skyscraper in Hawaii. If he'd fallen he would have been ''scalped'', but luckily all he lost was a bit of hair thanks to a member of the window washing team and a swiss army knife.
* {{Cancelled}}: Sadly, as of November 2012, the show is No More.
** Briefly subverted in 2013 with Dirty Jobs Down Under, then it got canceled again.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: One particular example in the ''Mike's Day Off'' special, where the series executive producer and CEO of the show's company [[KingIncognito take over as the host]] for one episode. Craig Piligian (the CEO) during a stint as a custom wheel manufacturer bluntly refuses to partake in one of the steps (sanding the wheels, which involves getting dangerously close to the machine) and actually argues with Barsky on camera. Given that Craig signs Barsky's paychecks, he gets his wish and opt out of the sanding. Amusingly, this occurred right after a segment where Craig [[LaserGuidedKarma boasts about how easy Mike's job is]].

** Dirty Jobs Down Under had catching Brown Snakes (one of the top ten deadliest, with only a pillowcase to hold said snake, who has fangs that can bite through it), Opal Mining (Be careful you don't fall in a hole, you'll either break a leg or die, and then Barski almost did), Stingray fishing (Okay, actually the least dangerous), Crocodile Catching (at night, I might add, with one boat not working); Even just driving to some locations was dangerous (Road to Cougar Pede, and watch out for Water Buffalo).
