I can honestly say that I love what I do, but I think we can all agree that my choice of career is far from conventional – so much so that many don’t even know such an industry exists. It can be a little awkward at social gatherings when everyone is discussing their professions – “I’m a teacher, nurse, accountant…” and then I come in and say “I scoop dog poop for a living”. No matter how cordial the conversation, the person I am talking to can’t help but react with a confused and perhaps slightly disgusted face. But once that 3 seconds of shock wears off, that confused look quickly turns into a smile… and that makes me smile back.

As serious as I take my job, the overall idea of it is well… funny. I make jokes about it everyday. So I decided to write down some of the common puns I use and I encourage fellow poop scoopers to use them in order to break the ice, be less shy about what you do, and let others know that you can share in the humor too.

Here it is, the top 20 Funny Puns for Professional Poop Scoopers:
