(New York Magazine)   Have a toilet that is backed up AND looking to piss off libs? For only $1,000 a day plus travel expenses, you can have Joe the Plumber come fix your toilet and carp about Palestinians, or Barry Soetoro, or whatever   (nymag.com) divider line 19

Sorry, no.  I require my plumbers to be licensed, bonded, experienced and honest.

Help me out, Conservatives... if you decide to shell out $1,000 plus travel expenses so Joe the Plumber can unclog your toilet, why on Earth do you think that would that piss me off? What am I missing here?

Why in the world would anyone be pissed some chucklehead wasted $1000 on,what would likely be, the most annoying plumbing repair job ever.

I mean seriously, I have had to tell contract workers "You know its great work you are doing but, how about you quit talking about politics (or sports, your sex life what have you) and get back to the work I am paying you for?"

Besides I only hire licensed companies to work at my house.

Desquamation: InmanRoshi: jayhawk88: Ha! Ponies on his webpage! Also:

Before you assume it's all I can do, don't worry - I've done white collar world as a Network engineer. No, didn't go to school for it, I learned it by reading books, learning from my peers and bosses - the hardscrabble way. The money was good, but building networks (voice and data) didn't give me the sense of accomplishment that I wanted and quite frankly I like blue collar people a hell of a lot more... if I have to describe blue collared in one word... REAL.

Goddamn it I almost think it would be worth it to drop $1k just to see him try to try and use Wireshark.

Ah, bless his heart.  He thinks that laying down Cat5 is "white collar".   He's pretty proud of himself that he learned how to do it, though.

I have a difficult time believing this guy was a network engineer...


Yeah, that quote immediately sets off the b.s. detector. "I totally was a network engineer, but fixing toilets is just so more satisfying. Giving up working with stupid routers for this plunger and wrench is worth giving up the 100k salary." Yeah right.

He's probably not even a cable monkey. He helped a buddy run some Cat6 on a job one afternoon, got the "blue, blue/white" instructions, did a few punch-downs, and figured he was basically a CCNA.

How much of the $1000 goes to hiring someone with an actual plumbing license?

So is the 10% to the national debt on top of what he has to pay in taxes on the income?  Or is he telling us that this is an under the table deal and he "promises" to mail them 10%?  It's hard to tell with Joe (not his real name) the (probably thee) Plumber (not an actual licensed plumber).

Klom Dark: Wow, Fark is really boring and sucky the last few days. All this shiat going on and we get Joe the Plumber stories? Meh...


I noticed.  I've been eagerly awaiting updates to the "Truckers for Derp" story.

Will he be able to explain why "Wanting a white president again?" isn't even slightly racist.
