Joe the Plumber vs. Sam the Plumber
I wonder if I'm the only one who thinks that "Joe the Plumber" sounds like one of those old-fashioned Mafia aliases, sort of like "Sam the Plumber" (above).
Sam the Plumber was Simon Rizzo DeCavalcante, boss of the New Jersey mob in the sixties and, like Joe the Plumber, not a plumber at all.
