An oddcupation is a job in which one works by finding a variety of temporary odd jobs, preferring self-employment over outright, routinized wage labor. Usually in choosing such work individuals are willing to accept ANY type of job, no matter how degrading or embarrassing.
oddcupation.blogspot provides an example of an individual that chose such a job.
