(Newser) – Could the recession turn The Most Dangerous Game into reality? Mork Encino hopes so. The 28-year-old unemployed Utah man is offering “hearty gentlemen who fancy themselves sportsmen” the chance to hunt him down and even kill him for $10,000. “I am a new breed of prey with thick pelt and smooth hide,” he boasts on his site, “I’m faster than a wild turkey, smart as any GODDAMN wild boar, and willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the monetary health of my family.”

Encino has had some offers already, he tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “none of which I’ve been comfortable accepting.” And though he insists the whole thing isn’t a joke, he admits he’d like to parlay the publicity into a real job. “I’m hoping someone will offer me a better opportunity than being shot in the face,” he says. “It’s a job application, man. And a damn good one if I may say so.” Click, and judge for yourself.
