Funny Puns about Losing Jobs

Updated on November 16, 2013

Funny Puns about Losing Jobs

Let me explain, dear reader, before you get your panties in a bunch. I know there is absolutely nothing funny about losing a job. It is often a wrenching, painful experience.

But because it IS so unfunny, I’m here to cheer you up with a recital of 15 very funny, very short puns about all the wonderful jobs I lost:

I once worked in an orange juice factory.

It was the largest in the land.

Then only three months later,

I got my pink slip and was canned.

No, it was not cruel fate,

‘Twas because I could not concentrate.


Then I worked for a short time

In the woods as a lumberjack,

But I couldn’t clear the tracts,

So the boss gave me the axe.


I tried to be a tailor,

But I wasn't suited for it.

Ah well, you should know,

The job was only sew-sew.

I don't know what's going on and I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did!
I don't know what's going on and I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did!

I tried to work in a deli

But the job got me flustered.

No matter how I sliced it,

I could not cut the mustard.


I thought about becoming a witch,

So I tried that for a spell.

Managed to summon the devil

But was fired for raising hell.


I managed to get a very good job

After several weeks of training.

Working for a pool maintenance company,

But I found the work was just too draining.


For a short time, I worked for a butcher,

And my duties I would never shirk.

Had to quit when I backed him into his grinder,

And he got a little behind in his work.


My favorite job was flight attendant,

Wheeling drink carts from front to back.

But I lost that job when I spied a friend,

And loudly yelled, Hi, Jack, Hi, Jack!


I once worked in Australia and learned

To throw a boomerang eventually.

Can’t remember exactly how that works

But don’t worry, it will come back to me.


"We must laugh at man to avoid crying for him." - Napoleon Bonaparte
"We must laugh at man to avoid crying for him." - Napoleon Bonaparte

Worked for an eye doctor in Alaska,

But patients had trouble with their eyes.

Turns out he was an optical Aleutian,

Just another quack in disguise.


I would have liked to be a singer

And I often broke into song.

Because I could not find the key,

I would always get the gong.


I worked in a towel company,

But then the owner sold it.

So I worked for the new buyer

Until the towel company folded.


Weather forecast for tonight: dark!
Weather forecast for tonight: dark!

I always wanted to be a teacher

With morals and ethical scruples.

But because I was born cross-eyed,

I could not control my pupils.


After many, many, many years

I have almost reached my limit.

Now I work as a historian,

Even though there’s no future in it.


I never joined a dangerous cult,

Those folks can cost you your wealth.

I always practiced safe sects,

So much better for my health.


Are you wondering, did I really have all those jobs? Of course I did. Would I lie to you?

Note: If you are speculating about my personal life, too . . .

. . . I had a boyfriend with a wooden leg,

Who tried to take me down a peg.

So I broke it off.

      Hi, brakel2 - don't know how I missed your comment. My sincere apologies, m'dear. Yes, I have done limericks in addition to verse and haiku but puns are one of my favorite forms of printed laughter. Thanks for the kind words and the sharing.

      Hi drbj. I think puns are hysterical, especially yours. One about a dr cracked up my med school relative. Do you also do limericks? I made up a not too funny limerick and puns seem difficult. Keep up the good work. Sharing. Blessings. Audrey

      Y'know, J. Rocco, to answer your query, how do I do what I do? I haven't the faintest. I just think of stuff and rush to get it into the computer before the tiring brain cells yell, Whoa! So far, so good ... as the fellow falling below the 35th floor of the skyscraper was heard to yell.

      What lovely comments. And what a lovely coincidence - I always feel so much better after I read them. :)

      These are great puns. You are making me appreciate some of the stuff I used to hear all the time but didn't think of them as puns. Maybe because I come from a Scandinavian background and punds like these would be said as if they were serious.

      Darn it, I had to wait until that stupid floating ad made its way across my screen. I mentioned these in the Forum. Said to take a screen shot and report, but it moves before I can get to my screen shot.

      So happy I could provide your morning giggle, Scribenet. What a great idea you mentioned - using the meerkat photo as a screensaver. Those lil guys are fun to watch. I was addicted to that TV documentary on meerkats that was popular not long ago.

      Hi, Audrey. Do hope all is well in your world. Thanks for enjoying my job loss puns - the butcher and the flight attendant are among my favorites, too. As a fellow believer in the power of humor and laughter, it's always my pleasure to hear from you. Thanks for sharing, pinning, tweeting and spreading ... the laughter, that is. Be well.

      Hi, Martin, thanks for the 'hilarious' accolade regarding my funny puns. I can easily say the same for you regarding your limericks. You are the Limerick Professor. Trust me. And you're welcome!

      Love that title, Ruby - 'master (or mistress) of untruthful events.' Sorry to hear about your darn carpal tunnel problem - but fervently hope it is the worst that ever happens to you.

      Thank you for that inspiring comment - that you love all I do and say. Bringing joy your way makes my day, m'dear.

      You may be absolutely correct with your comment, Linda: "Only drbj could make losing a job so darn funny!" Thank you, m'dear.

      That was great, Nell, you know I'll try to use it one day. " I used to work in a fireworks factory, but one day when we were testing the fireworks the boss said: 'Retire to a safe place' So I did, I went to live in Mexico!" You won an enchilada with that one, m'dear.

      Hi, Rebecca. You are SOOO perceptive, m'dear. I can understand why a telemarketing job might have been less than your favorite profession. You have too much talent for that, y'know. If you think of a limerick for that depressing experience, please let me know.

      I knew somehow, mary, that you would favor the flight attendant pun, too. Love your joke about the secretary who put white-out on her computer screen to correct her mistakes. Doesn't everyone?

      You're the best, too, m'luv. Thanks for the UP and sharing.
