A medieval castle in the Lake District has launched a search for someone to take on the world's silliest job.
Muncaster Castle, near Ravenglass, is calling for all jokesters to audition for their 'International Jester Competition' where they have the chance of being crowned the 'Fool of Muncaster'.
The castle is home to the original Tom Fool, and is believed to be the only castle in the world which still employs a modern day jester.
The annual tournament is part of the Castle's Muncaster Festival which runs from May 25th-29th.
The winner of the prestigious jester title will be awarded with beer for a year, as traditional Court Jesters were always paid in ale.
