“Where does seaweed go to look for a job?"/"The Kelp Wanted section.”

Many newspapers have a “help wanted” section. Kelp isn’t that wanted, but there’s a riddle:

Q: Where does seaweed go to look for a job?
A: The “Kelp Wanted” section of the newspaper.


The “Kelp Wanted” joke was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on November 15, 2002. The joke has been printed on an image.


Wikipedia: Kelp
Kelps are large seaweeds (algae) belonging to the brown algae (Phaeophyceae) in the order Laminariales. There are about 30 different genera.

Kelp grows in “underwater forests” (kelp forests) in shallow oceans, and is thought to have appeared in the Miocene, 23 to 5 million years ago.
