1. Adam Rowe: Working at the jobcentre has to be a tense job – knowing that if you get fired, you still have to come in the next day.

2. Leo Kearse: I had a job drilling holes for water – it was well boring.

3. Olaf Falafel: I took out a loan to pay for an exorcism. If I don't pay it back, I'm going to get repossessed.

4. Daniel Audritt: In my last relationship I hated being treated like a piece of meat. She was a vegan and refused to touch me.

5. Flo & Joan: What do colour-blind people do when they are told to eat their greens?

6: Darren Walsh: I've got a new job collecting all the jumpers left in the park at the weekends, but it's not easy. They keep moving the goalposts.

7. Justin Moorhouse: Trump said he'd build a wall but he hasn't even picked up a brick. He's just another middle-aged man failing on a DIY project.

=8. Adele Cliff: I lost a friend after we had an argument about the Tardis. I thought it was a little thing, but it seemed much bigger once we got into it.

=8. Alex Edelman Why are they calling it Brexit and not The Great British Break Off?

10. Laura Lexx: I think love is like central heating. You turn it on before guests arrive and pretend it's like this all the time.
