Hi there loyal fans. This is Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher a.k.a. Joe the Plumber a.k.a. Joe the War Correspondent. A bunch of those guys over at Pajamas Media decided to hire me cause I was pretty much unemployed and send me to Gaza. Great idea right? Wrong. As it turns out Gaza is actually a war torn zone in the Middle East and not a delicious ice cream shop like I originally thought. You live and learn though right?
So I guess the first question to answer is why did I decide to become a reporter. Well here it goes. Last year I was sittin around tryin to figure out how I could become a little better off. Ya see I worked as a plumber, but I never actually was one. I mean I know how to bond pvc pipes together and stuff but I never completed the apprentice program to actually BE a plumber. Anyhow I worked as a plumber for a while and as I was stuck under sinks and behind toilets I started to form some opinions. Anyhow one day I was playin football in my front yard and some black dude showed up and started to talk to people. I was concerned he was tryin to move into my neighborhood so I went over to see what all the hub bub was. As it turns out it was Obama.
Anyhow I called him a socialist because lets face it, unless you’re a white middle class American trying to live WAY beyond your means, you’re a socialist. Well next thing I know Obama and McCain are talking directly to me at their debates. Well after some nosey people did some pokin around I got fired cause I didn’t actually have a licence to plumb. Anyway I was out of money.
So I was sittin there tryin to figure out how the hell I was gonna buy more shaving cream AND pay for ESPN’s Gameplan so could watch my beloved Buckeyes ALL THE FRICKIN TIME when someone asked me if I was going to run for congress in 2010. I was like “Heck yes I’m up for it”. I mean what the hell else did I have to do and God forbid anyone with any actual experience get elected. I mean look at Sarah Palin I think she had TOO MUCH experience to get elected. They should asked Sarah Lipwitz, the night manager of the Burger King in Columbus.
Anyway, after that I was down at Ace Hardware buying some spackle when I figured, “Hey, for some reason people think that my uneducated, repeatedly proven as falsified, opinion is important. I should do commercials”! I started slinging digital converter boxes and they paid me enough to go out and get an autographed Marty Genetti poster.
I wrote a book too, but no body really read it. I mean its not that big a deal. Another dude wrote it, I just hung out, ate some Taco Bell and answered some questions. I figured he was probably a pinko commie and wanted to kill Israel with B.O. and I frickin booked. Get it. Book. Booked. Ha ha ha. I frickin kill me.
Next this total frickin d-bag, Michael Tomasky, puts me on the list of the 19 worst Americans. ME! Cheesus. Me! How could he do that? He’s a frickin commie. That’s how.
Anyway after that those dudes at Pajamas said, “Hey, why don’t you go be a reporter”. I frickin did it and I RULE at it. OH YEAH!
Turns out Pajamas got like 20 Bajillion posts about what a loser I am. Frickin Socialists, all of em. Then my boss decided, I guess to appease the crowd, to tell every one my reporting was “B to B+”. Well frick that. I am Double A Plus all the way so I frickin decided to report my stuff here on Hey Stupid. You know I remember someone else who tried to save other people with the same beliefs as him and a crowd of nameless faces shouting “Crucify Him!”.
Anyway. This is Joe The Plu…I mean Joe The War Correspondent signing off. Keep Fighting for the American Dream!
