    Would you listen to a country album from 'Joe the Plumber'?
    [​IMG] You know that one dude Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher (pictured) everyone keeps talking about on TV? He may or may not already be a played-out Halloween costume, but he sure is famous. So famous, in fact, that he's just retained the services of a Nashville-based PR firm, which sent me a press release last night. Said publicity firm has also been quoted as saying that "Joe" is considering launching a country music career. Yep, that's right — "Joe the Plumber" is on the cusp of pulling a Joaquin the Actor. I, Simon the Blogger, am going to refrain from making a hasty judgment on this important matter (as well as from making any further lame "______ the ______er" jokes). So you tell me. Good idea? Bad idea? And wouldn't it make more sense for a plumber to play some good old-fashioned [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiYL1zZAk0w"]musical pipes[/ame] than to try and become a country singer?

    Joe the Plumber hires publicist


    By Associated Press | Thursday, October 30, 2008

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Joe the Plumber isn’t angling to become Joe the Country Singer, but maybe Joe the Author.

    Since becoming a symbol of working class America, 34-year-old Joe Wurzelbacher of Holland, Ohio has been flooded with requests for interviews and appearances.

    Nashville-based publicist Jim Della Croce says Wurzelbacher has hired him to help deal with the hoopla.

    pretty much. I can't stand Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Jessica Simpson. They will never be Reba, Patsy Cline, or Dolly and shouldn't even try.
