What do you do when your job – important though it is – makes people snicker? You go with it. Plumbers themselves tell jokes about plumbing. Some incorporate a joke into their business slogans. Meanwhile, comedians and talk show hosts like to use plumbers in their monologues. Read on for some (printable) examples of plumbing related humor:
A plumber was called to a doctor’s home to do some work. After working for about an hour, the plumber gave the M.D. a bill for $200. The doctor said, "Good Gracious Man! I have been to medical school and residency and have been practicing medicine for over 20 years and I can't charge that kind of money!" The plumber smiled and said, "Yeah, I couldn't either when I was in practice."
Man: Did you hear that someone broke into the local police station and stole the toilet? Right now the cops have nothing to go on…
How are poker players and plumbers alike? They both know a flush beats a full house!
Riddle: What is the one thing you’ll never see a plumber do? Answer: Bite his nails.
A proud father was showing a fellow worker a picture of his five grown sons. His friend asked what they did for a living. The father said the older two are doctors and the youngest two are lawyers. The friend asked about the middle son and the father said, "Oh, he's a plumber. Someone had to pay for all the others’ educations."
"I told my wife the truth. I told her I was seeing a psychiatrist. Then she told me the truth: that she was seeing a psychiatrist, two plumbers, and a bartender." – Rodney Dangerfield
A plumber in San Diego arrived at his next job only to find his client was going out. Worried about the client’s Rotweiler the man asks if he could come back later. Noticing the plumber’s insecurity the client says, “Don’t worry about the dog he won’t hurt you, but whatever you do don’t talk to the parrot!”. Heeding the client’s warning he walks into the house and into the kitchen. Feeling more confident about the Rotweiler he starts working on the sink. Barely after starting he notices the parrot sitting by the Rotweiler, all of a sudden the parrot bursts out with a bunch of insults. Almost half way through the job the plumber starts to get angry, tells the bird to shut up and throws in a few obscenities. All of a sudden the bird becomes silent, then very quietly the bird says, “Sick him Rex.”
