vision clearance engineer
 n.— «Vision Clearance Engineer has been voted the daftest job title of all time, crowning a growing list of appointments whose descriptions seem designed to bemuse rather than inspire. The euphemism for window cleaner won 28 per cent of the votes in a nationwide survey and is winner of the poll to find the most laughable job names.» —“Not a window cleaner… a vision clearance engineer” by Alastair Jamieson Scotsman (Glasgow, Scotland) Apr. 6, 2007.
