Funny Jobs


1. Boner

Come on. Do I need to even write anything after that word? This is an actual job title. Person who de-bones chickens and various poultry for consumption.

2. Mime

Nature’s way of thinning out the clown herd.

Those shopping carts do get feisty! Thank goodness for the Wrangler. Especially at Wal-Mart. Have you seen those new Moms drive??

4. Cutpurses

This is really just an archaic word for a pick-poket, cutting into your purse. Giving seaports and wharves a bad name since 1626.

Refers to a person in the textile industry who removes bobbins on a slubbing machine.

6. Phlebotomist

The people that draw your blood at the hospital, aka vampires.

7. Robber Baron

A pejorative term revived in the 19th century U.S. for businessmen and bankers who dominated certain industries and amassed huge personal fortunes, typically by anti-competitive or unfair business practices. Think, Ted Rogers. The term may now relate to any businessman or banker who used questionable business practices to become powerful or wealthy.

8. Mohel

A person trained in performing Jewish circumcisions. Their slogan is: “We make a Mohel out of a Mountain.”

9. Carny

Well, this one is just funny. The word comes from the original term “carnival,”  denoting  “one who enjoys the time of merrymaking before Lent,” as Wikipedia points out. Shortened to “carny,” LITERALLY, this person is usually a midget. Oh wait! They could be fat ladies. (But only fat ladies with beards.) Anything goes. It’s just a funny job.

10. Chick Sexer

Just watch Jon Stewart’s interview of Mike Rowe. There’s nothing else to say…
