Your binge-watching habits might finally pay off, now that one UK casino company is hiring an analyst to watch all 706 episodes of the TV classic "The Simpsons."

"It's a well-known phenomenon that The Simpsons has predicted major life events, and in our industry we too like to predict what the future has in store for us," the online casino company, Platin Casino, said. "The Simpsons Series Analyst will get paid to note down standout events from the show, to help us predict the probability of each one happening."

"The Simpsons" has developed a reputation for being able to accurately predict future events, including the election of Donald Trump, billionaire Richard Branson's voyage into space, and the discovery of the Higgs boson equation.

The analyst will receive £5,000 (the equivalent of R101,000) and a free weekly box of doughnuts to work 35-hour weeks for 8 weeks watching the show as well as the spinoff, "The Simpsons Movie."

You can be paid "in your chosen currency", the company said, at a rate that comes to just under R140 per episode.

Platin Casino did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

"During each episode the professional will be asked to take notes on stand out storylines to feedback to us and our team of prediction experts. We will then compile the events into a list of future predictions with a probability of each one happening," the casino company said.

Similar to many jobs during the pandemic, this one is remote-friendly with flexible hours, but requires a laptop or TV, strong writing skills, and fluency in English.

"And of course, a love for The Simpsons is desirable," the company said.
