Craigslist is a popular place to post free jobs listings. Sometimes the job titles are pretty funny. Here are 51 funny job listings from the site for your pun-filled enjoyment. This article was inspired by Word Sell’s Cartoon-Inspired Group Writing Project that I discovered on Group Writing Projects. When I saw the message on the gas pump, I first thought of all these funny resume blunders. Since Robyn - another blogger in this group writing project - already mentioned them in her hysterical post, I decided to compile this funny job titles list.

As time passed, Craigslist removed the old postings, breaking all my links so I've removed them. Believe me though, those were the real titles used. Enjoy!
