Jobless man offers hunters human prey

It’s tough finding even an odd job these days.

You'll have to be a good shot to bag this wily woodsman.

You'll have to be a good shot to bag this wily woodsman.

That’s why Utah-area resident Mork Encino, who swears this is his real name, created the oddest job for himself.

Encino, 28, on his website, advertises he’ll be human prey for marksmen with $10,000 to spare.

It’ll cost you an extra $2k to hunt him in the nude.

He’s not worried about the steep price driving off customers.

“I’m looking for a true god[bleep] Money Bags, okay? 10K is nothing to these boys. They leave tips on restaurant checks like that. They drop that type of scratch just because. They’ll pay that money just to rub it in my FACE and show me how meaningless it truly is to the likes of them,” he writes on huntme4sport.com.

On Twitter, Encino says he’s “pro prey looking for a change,” but admits he’s not willing to die for the cash. Instead, he wants the website, which he calls “a product of my desperation,” to land him a normal job.

“I’m hoping someone will offer me a better opportunity than being shot in the face,” said Encino.

He does his best to look and sound like a country bumpkin, but the clothes look a little too new.

He says he’s “generally unskilled” and hasn’t had a job in years. In the past, he’s worked in construction, landscaping and cleaned out storage sheds.

His greatest skill may be self-promotion: He’s appeared on radio programs and been written up by quite a few websites.

Since hunting people is highly illegal, valid hunting offers have been few and far between.

“I’ve had a variety of offers, none of which I’ve been comfortable accepting. As I’ve said, this is not my dream job. There’s obviously no longterm in it. This is just something I’ve resorted to in order to make others aware of my situation. It’s a job application, man. And a damn good one if I may say so,” Encino said via email.

Longterm unemployment can make even a funny man bitter: “[The website speaks to the] severity of the times we live in. I mean, you got a job? Congratulations. Sincerely. But don’t tell me it was easy. If it was that easy, you had an unfair advantage and you know it. People can’t STAND to see others succeed. I understand that! I can’t stand to see people with jobs (I mean, sometimes I drive by some of these houses and I think just HOW THE HELL did these people build that thing? What CRIME is that fortune built on??) and conversely those same idiots can’t stand to see me out here in the news and on the radio, just asking for something basic.”

Let’s hope he makes a killing.

brilliant, I loved the pics on his website.
this looks like some radio DJ’s prank the way he’s played up his hick-talk.
No bumpkin acting that ignorant could build a website.

Not even an original idea. I assume he’s seen the movie “Surviving The Game” staring Ice-T…

Gilligan’s Island had this theme a dozen times, dude is just laying around at home watching reruns. Sadly, this gives him the publicity he desires.

The Ice-T movie? Ummm, more like “The Most Dangerous Game.”

i remember that movie, and there was a later one what was pretty much a horror flick–the “star” was maybe a wrestler in real life? “the ice-t” one (smile) was better. you know, he is judging others because their accomplishments have given them materialistic goods. and yet, who knows if he is for real… a homeless guy with a website and new clothes? i am happy for him, but…hopefully his reverse-idea plan will work and he will get a real job.

I don’t know if this is a good idea or not – or even if it is real – but at least he isn’t sitting around whining. Is he?

The story said that he was “jobless”, not “homeless.”

As to him finding real employment, I would be hesitant to hire him out of concerns for his mental state and disregard for the law. Even if this is just a desperate prank to call attention to his plight, the whole shtick makes me uncomfortable.

Obviously a joke/hoax/parody whatever… Kind of funny. Good thing that he’s not looking for work in web design because his site is terrible.

No one would ever give this guy a job. He is too busy particpating in the Dems Wealth envy war.

Another reference, the Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode where Mac and Dennis “hunt” Cricket. Frank becomes personally upset with them hunting humans and tells a story of a time he was hunted, mis-remembering his past as the movie Rambo.

Hey, i’m looking for a job, too (hence the name). But, I don’t look at other people, that I don’t know, and their houses and fortunes in life and wonder “what crime is that fortune built on?”.
Being successful does not mean your criminal.
I instead like to find people who appear more successful than myself and find out what they do and how they did it to get where their at in life.
It’s better to try to learn from someone that has succeeded in life. And believe me they’ll have probably failed at some point also. But have learned from their mistakes. Cliche, but true.

What's his name?

Is his name really “Mork” or is it a misspell?
If it’s really Mork then that explains a lot. He’s out there!

He can probably get hired as a City of Atlanta school teacher.

Yeah, the clown must be watching Gilligan’s Island re-runs when famed movie actor Rory Calhoun played a big game hunter after Gilligan. It was tough to hide from him on such a tiny island, but he had help distracting Rory.

I remember the Gilligan’s Island episode with Jack Cassidy hunting Gilligan. Strangely I thought it about it just the other day for no apparent reason (before I ever heard of this guy here.) I always thought that was a disturbing episode, and not even funny.

“i have 10k for the girl. Boy she’s got some hooters”

- That’s Coco, the wife of Ice-T, who was in “Surviving the Game” playing a homeless
man hired by ex-CIA types for sport. The photo and its title caption shows where the
idea came from.

man hired by ex-CIA types to be hunted for sport.”. Sorry.

Get a student loan. Even a small one. Learn a trade- trucking, something! Get a job. No one gives anyone anything these days. You have to bust your butt for it.

I have a job. I’ve been with this employer for 10 years; the one before that for six, before that four, before that 12. Unfair advantage? Dude, the trick is not getting hired. It’s staying hired. And the “unfair” advantage I have is that I’m qualified and dependable.

If he had any b@lls he could certainly offer to be hunted with tranquilizer darts. But I’d pay an extra $3k for him NOT to be nude!

Classic case of a guy with brains but no motivation. I’m not by any means for illegal immigraton, but on any given day there are 20 guys standing outside in 90+ degree heat at the hardware store ready to mow a yard or paint a house. According to the article this guy hasn’t had a job in years. There’s a difference between not being able to find a job, and not having the skills and background to land a job he prefers.

I do admire his ingenuity and courage. Hopefully, he will continue to walk zigzag to avoid snipers. But he’s attracting attention, and that’s the name of the game in the hiring business and always will be. I use similar techniques with my consulting business, all based on IMAGINATION and humor. Nothing criminal or physical. For example, when Dr. Joe Vitale’s book, “The Attractor Factor,” needed publicity, I arranged for a faux Powerball winner to claim he got his winning numbers by randomly picking them out of “The Attractor Factor.” The book sold like hotcakes thereafter.
