“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Joe the Plumber vs. Ad the Dad
Thursday, October 30, 2008

Okay, so I've got some competition in the becoming-the-next-Mr.-Clean contest:

Yes, the man from Toledo. I must admit that he does look a lot like Mr. Clean. Put a white t-shirt on him and see if you don't agree. We do have a similar build ... but his head isn't as nicely shaped as mine. It's kind of square, unlike mine, which tapers off into fine slopes. What do you think?

BTW: That's my mom on the right. And on the left, a friend from my hometown, Patsy Downen.

Okay, so I now see that my hands and arms a little too hairy to be Mr. Clean, but I can do that laser-hair-removal thing. I don't mind.

Other reasons I should be chosen over Joe: He looks so MAD! I think he would frighten women. And he doesn't know how to hang pictures worth a damn. And are those cigarettes on the table? Well, Joe, let me tell you: Mr. Clean should NOT smoke!

I think the choice is pretty clear. Don't you?

Election '08: Ad Hudler for Mr. Clean

Indeed, Joe's head is frighteningly large and misshapen -- also, his 15 minutes are over. It's time for a change.

Ad for Mr. Clean!

PS I approve this message.

Amen, Steph, it's time for change.

Are you practicing that "stick your neck out like a turkey and press your tongue to the roof of your mouth trick," Ad? There's not a second chin in sight! Your mom and friend are lovely, by the way.

yeah, the vulture/turkey/whatever you call it works. No more double chin!

This from a reader in Georgia, sent via email:

"...As I watched Joe the Plummer on TV, I actually did think of you! However, I must say that you are a better speaker, way funnier and yes, better looking, too! You're smart and have excellent housekeeping and culinary skills. Also you are a keen observer of people and and wield the power of the pen.
Joe's good with a wrench and is supporting the wrong guy in the presidential election! He can't even touch you in the Mr. Clean contest!
You Go Guy!

Ad again: How can i argue with such sound reasoning?
