Plumbers With Overalls

Better work clothes

Plumbers are know for like places like the kitchen or bathroom, and they usually have to kneel down, and they end up showing their butt crack making people around the plumber uncomfortable.

So basically the idea is to make them wear overalls, which would avoid that and they would look more professional.

Other plumbers robbing you blind? Call the Turd Burglar http://cache.pakist...robbers-decamp1.png

       How, exactly, will you enforce this overalls-only policy? Are you talking about creating public awareness of the epidemic of plumber's crack engulfing the free nations of the world, or is this some bizarre fascist mandate to be carried out by military police action?

       By advertising. When its done right, it works.

       A search for the words [ plumbers + overalls ] suggests that you did not perform a similar search before posting this idea.

       I already knew that, but chose mockery over mere correction.

       Or you could go the other route and play up the cliche' for comedy purposes. "Crack Plumbers: Our crack plumbers are too busy doing the job right to worry about fashion." then have a cartoon character of a plumber's crack sporting guy looking over his shoulder and giving the thumbs up after fixing the leak.

       There is a local plumbing firm that advertises itself as the “smell-good” plumber, in contrast to what they refer to as “stinky buttcrack” plumbers. They have a reputation for being overpriced and somewhat incompetent.

       //They have a reputation for being overpriced and somewhat incompetent.//   

       LOL. and by contrast we had a local company with a skunk with a clothespin on it's nose as a mascot with the slogan "Let Stinky do it!"   

       I always thought the best name for a plumbing company would be "Turd-Burglar". The mascot would be the cliche' burglar with a black eye mask, striped shirt, 5 o'clock shadow and 1930s burglar's cap sneaking in the window with a plunger in his hand instead of a crowbar. See link and replace the flashlight with a plunger in your mind's eye.

       Or just print bum cleavage on the overalls, then at least you could standardise it.
