I had a job preserving fruit, but it wasn't long before they canned me.

I worked in an aviary which turned out to be for the birds.

I had a job on a potato farm, but I just couldn't dig it.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I was a bookmakers assistant for a while, but all the shouting made me hoarse.

That's the way things were when I worked as a bouncer for a strip club. They decided that I couldn't stick it out.

I copied all of the jobs so far for one of my friends tonight. While doing so, I remembered a few jobs I had:

I tried to be a sandwich maker, but I couldn't cut the mustard. Then I worked for an orchard, but it turned out I was too much of a nut. Finally, I got a job selling fruit preserves, but I kept finding myself in a jam.
