YMMV / Dirty Jobs

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Either through the situation, Mike's comments or both, this is probably one of the funniest shows on TV because it has so many funny moments. We also have a list of some of the best moments.
  • Ear Worm: "On the road to Coober Pedy there's a thousand ways to die..."
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Making mud for off-shore oil wells in the Gulf coast; cleaning the natural gas drilling "fracking" (short for "fracture", not a sci-fi swear word) chemical containers after watching the documentary Gasland (briefly: natural gas drilling is so bad for the environment that drinking water becoming flammable is the least of its problems).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Back when he hosted The History Channel program, The Most, Mike did a segment on the world's dirtiest job: the Parisian sewer worker.
  • Nausea Fuel: Some episodes you really don't want to watch while eating.
