I can seal a cylindrical metal container in a cylindrical metal container but the cylindrical metal container cannot seal me.

Or, "...cannot fire me", as "can" is often slang for being relieved of one's job.

The 4th "can" could also refer to a bathroom, and the last "can" could also mean fire (terminate employment).

Can #2 might also mean discard or throw away.

This is grammatically incorrect. "can can't can me" is missing an article on the first "can".

You're right, it should be "a can can't can me."

This sentence is a joke about the fact that the word "can" has so many different meanings, Sarah. In case you haven't figured it out by now! ;)
