I'm Proud of My Plumber's Crack. It's What Distinguishes Me From the Average Joe...

Plumbers always get a bad rap for having a visible butt crack. I blame it on the heavy tools we keep in our pants' pockets and the short tee-shirts we wear. So many plumbers display butt cracks that it has become known as a "Plumber's Crack" no matter who has one. When I taught high school plumbing and I saw a student who had what I called "early-onset plumber's crack" I'd nod my head in approval and tell the kid, "you've got real potential".

Suspenders are a very good option…

I remember when I was younger and had robust glutes, my butt crack remained covered while I worked. But now that I'm older and my butt is almost non-existent, no matter what I wear, there it is, out in the open for all to see. I tried wearing longer tee-shirts and tucking them in, but eventually, the shirt becomes untucked and there it is! I may have to start wearing suspenders…

I was doing a little painting and thought I felt a draft… I'm lucky my neighbors didn't call 911 for "disturbing the peace". My wife, the opportunist that she is, took the pic…

My youngest son and my wife are constantly snapping pics of my Plumber's Crack and they think it's hysterical. I'm afraid that after my time is up all the pics of me in family albums will be of my butt crack and will be described to future generations like this, "There's your great grandfather Vindog. He was a Plumber… and he wore it well…"

You can hide it…

I used to spend the entire day tugging my pants up so I didn't look like the stereotypical plumber, but I've been teased so often by my family and friends I no longer care. I've reversed direction on it and now I'm proud of my Plumber's Crack, it's what distinguishes me from the average Joe.

I've never been a gamer. But I've had an iPhone for a year now and I've gone to the app store more than I care to admit. While cruising the internet I came across a video game called "Plumber Crack". I added it to my iPhone and just recently started playing.

The idea of depositing ice cubes and other items, down a plumber's crack, or anyone who has a plumber's crack, is really nothing new. Many have tried, but in my experience, they've been unsuccessful. In this video game, with a little bit of practice, players can consistently swipe up and find the crack. It's addicting and you can choose a female plumber and she giggles when you land one clean, earning you points as a "Sniper". If the ice cube bounces around a bit before finding the crack, it's called a "Rim Shot". If you win enough you can dress her up in skimpy clothes, but that's really weird. (kinda fun though!)

I've been told my butt crack has been seen by so many people that it could be picked out of a police line-up. It's nice to be so popular…
