JOE THE PLUMBER [Oct. 15th, 2008|11:22 pm]
A. Hamster
McCain mentioned Joe the Plumber something like 21 times during the debate. In fact, I felt like the whole thing was kind of a love letter from McCain to good old Joe. But who is Joe, really?

Joe Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. Joe the Plumber, is certainly making the rounds on youtube right now. But did you know that he also made the rounds in the AWA, the WCWA, and the WWF? The screencap above doesn't do him justice: if you look closely at the video, you can see a man who's hunching over to speak to the 6'1" Obama, and is easily 3 times as wide.

That's right: he may have lost a little weight since his heyday, but it's clear that our own Joe the Plumber, in a previous career, was King Kong Bundy. Do you really think that frozen pipes could stand up to this man?

On Saturday, in public, my mother was trying to point something out to me in the distance, which I could not see because a person she identified as "King Kong Bundy" had moved into view so that the sight was no longer visible. Due to your tireless research I was able to correct my mother with "no, that's Joe the Plumber."
Though just in that picture he reminds me a bit more of noted pro-leprechaun activist Finlay.

Finlay looks thoughtful, even pensive, in that photo. You'd never know by looking that he was the sort of man who had to physically restrain a leprechaun from biting someone.
