Dark-Eye Worst Middle Earth Occupations

While doing rather meaningless tasks at my job, I began to wonder what the worst occupations in Middle Earth would look like. Here is what I have come up with so far:

1. Dentist to the Mouth of Sauron.
2. Shire Nutritionist.
3. Harbinger of bad news to Morgoth.
4. Feanorís anger management coach.
5. Orkin man in the realm of Mordor.
6. Polisher of Grond.

Please add on if you wish....

Well if we can stretch Middle Earth to include Numenor then I should think that being Aldarion and Erendis' marriage guidance counsellor would have been a bit of a challenge...

hehe. Absolutely hilarious, yet slightly disturbing, image of a Balrog in a pink tutu!

MaultheStoor is still gossiping in the Green Dragon.
I feel sorry for whoever had to clean Sauron's contact lenses. I also feel sorry for Gollum's therapist.
