“What did the light house keeper do when he lost his job?” (joke)

"Lighthouse work” is sometimes confused with “light housework.” “That’s ‘light housework’, not ‘lighthouse work’.  but I can see why you might get confused” was posted on Twitter by Martin A. Brooks on January 15, 2010. “When I hear the Visiting Angels underwriting on NPR, my brain autocorrects ‘light housework’ to ‘lighthouse work.’ Hilarity ensues” was posted on Twitter by Matt Trotter on July 20, 2016.

A pun was posted on Reddit—Jokes on January 22, 2019:

“What did the light house keeper do when he lost his job? He became a maid, he was already accustomed to performing light house work.”

Radio ad for in-home elder care says they also provide “light housework”... or do they mean “lighthouse work”?

A note to those looking for jobs online: “light housework” and “lighthouse work” are two very different things.

Heard an agency advertising their services on the radio, and now I’m tortured wondering if they were offering to do ‘light housework’ or ‘lighthouse work.’
