2. Nickname for Joe Wurzelbacher during the 2008 US presidential election, who got his 15 minutes of fame by confronting Barack Obama with a hypothetical scenario of buying the plumbing business he worked for that would allegedly put him in the top tax bracket. The actual income of the business he was babbling about didn't reach above a quarter of the taxable income needed before the threshold.
1. The fundamentals of the economy are strong. I know for a fact that Joe the Plumber can bench over 350 lbs.
