When is a plumber not a plumber?


'Plumber' says he has no plumbing license

COLUMBUS, OH - Joe the Plumber, American's most famous tradesman, said Thursday he doesn't have a license and doesn't need one.

Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, the nickname Republican John McCain bestowed on him during Wednesday's presidential debate, said he works for a small plumbing company that does residential work. Because he works for someone else, he doesn't need a license, he said.
Is it us, or can they get nothing right?

UPDATE: From: 'Joe the plumber' isn’t licensed

Mr. Wurzelbacher said he works under Al Newell’s license, but according to Ohio building regulations, he must maintain his own license to do plumbing work.

He is also not registered to operate as a plumber in Ohio, which means he’s not a plumber.
