I just saw this article on Woman's Day: 10 Wackiest Ways to Make Money . I didn't think their ideas were too strange (at least they didn't seem that way to me). Many of them have been discussed here already. So, I thought I'd put the question to YOU. What are some of the most unusual ways to generate income that you've heard of?

The problem with some of the jobs in the article was that they are temporary, sporadic or seasonal.
If you don't want to install Christmas lights, offer to wrap presents for people at Christmas. They pay for the supplies, either by buying it themselves or you purchasing, and then charge a flat rate. I'd do it in the person's home or office so there is no question that a package got "lost".
One of the wackiest extra jobs I have heard is a guy who is a free-lance mortician. His full-time job is at a mortuary but when a competitor gets "a little backed up" he'll go moonlight at their place, mostly preparing bodies or providing transportation. The guy is also a volunteer firefighter.
Around here almost everyone has a combination of part-time jobs or a main job and several side jobs. Our real estate agent makes craft items (for craft fairs) in her spare time. Another real estate agent I know also does appraisals, is a city council member and does stump grinding (tree stumps).
