Dumb Plumber was a pregnant idea sired by an Edward Jones Investment manager who, in the summer of 2000, while pitching $85 World Com and $48 Williams Oil and Gas, was lecturing his brokers on presenting investment ideas that, ”even a dumb plumber could understand”. Even a dumb plumber knows better than to buy at the top of the market!
Since then, the “dumb plumber” has been outspoken on issues that assault the rational, attack the logical and offend the foundation of common sense. Heretofore, these issues have been dealt with verbally, over cups of coffee at morning klatches. Assaults gleaned from pages of the daily fishwrap both foreign and domestic are readily dealt with using hypothetical explosives, assault weapons and physical violence and on many occasions the application of sharp instruments applied to the private parts of offending parties.
