In 1881, a census survey was carried out in London and these were some of the occupations listed and preserved by the London Genealogical Society.

Not everyone appreciated it.  Some obviously regarded this census thingie as unwanted government interest in what they felt to be personal and private information. Clearly the people who listed these hilarious occupations didn’t take it at all seriously.

Which is your favorite of these? What spurious occupation might you list if you were part of this group?
