These tech-centric jokes,
song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and
websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly
offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.

I'm eating on Instagram.
My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned ... couldn't concentrate. Then I worked
in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so ...they gave me the ax. After that I tried to be a
tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it. Mainly because ...it was a so-so job. Next I tried working in a muffler
factory, but that ...was exhausting. I wanted to be a barber, but ...I just couldn't cut it. Then I tried to be
a chef -- figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just ...didn't have the thyme. I attempted to be
a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I... couldn't cut the mustard. My best job was being a musician, but eventually
I found ...I wasn't noteworthy. I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I...didn't have any patients. Next
was a job in a shoe factory; I tried but I ...just didn't fit in. I became a professional fisherman, but discovered
that I ...couldn't live on my net income. Thought about becoming a witch, so I ...tried that for a spell. I managed
to get a good job working for a pool-maintenance company, but the work was ...just too draining. I got a job at
a zoo feeding giraffes, but I was fired because I ...wasn't up to it. So then I got a job in a fitness-center, but
they said I ...wasn't fit for the job. Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking
and I ...was discharged. After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until
I realized there was ...no future in it. My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it ...was
always the same old grind.

What a Puttz
Playing golf with his buddies, my grandfather had to make a slick 25-foot putt. As he lined it up, he announced,
"I have a dollar bill that says I can make this putt. Does anyone want to bet?"
His three friends eagerly agreed to the wager. My grandfather missed the putt by ten feet, and his friends gathered
around to collect their money. Granddad pulled out a dollar bill on which he had written, "I can make this putt."
His pals are still trying to collect on the bet and grandpa is too.
Mental Aptitude Test
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director "How do you determine whether or not a patient
should be institutionalized?" "Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup
and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub." "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal
person would use the bucket because it's
bigger than the spoon or the teacup." "No," said the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want
a bed near the window?"
I went for a job interview. The guy asked, "Where do you see yourself in ten years time?" "Same as now - in photos
and mirrors," I replied.
