I’m Joe the Plumber try my new cologne

Apparently Sam the Wurzelbacher, AKA Joe the Plumber has decided to extend his two weeks of fame beyond the current election cycle.

He has signed a management deal to to hopefully become a show business personality
“Joe the Plumber is fast becoming a brand,” his opportunistic agency said. “He is a dynamic speaker and an everyman who has become an overnight celebrity. It’s going to be our job to find Joe’s strengths and give him some options.”
To continue the immediate exposure Joe is now appearing on stage with Palin.
“He’s a fellow Alaskan, and he’s a fellow military man who served our country proudly,” Ms. Palin said. “I’d like you to meet him! Please welcome Joe the Plumber!”
But his agency can see a good future for him after the election.
“It wouldn’t be far afield to have Joe be the spokesperson for Home Depot, for example, representing the shoulder-to-the-wheel working stiff,”
“He really isn’t selling out in any way, shape or form. We just want to see where he can have a positive impact.”
Of course you know where this will all lead.
We will be inodated with spurious copy cat trades spokespeople. Wally the Window Guy, Derek the Drywaller and then the service industries, Sally the salesgirl, Brian the Burger Flipper ...
We are loosing our personal identity here folks.

What is wrong with these people, using a fictional character to gain a few moments of fleeting fame... oh wait a minute.

Never mind.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
