One who fixes or repairs pipes. Plumber has a "b" in it because pipes were originally made of lead, (lead seemed a logical choice at the time, because of its resiliancy against rust... then people discovered what lead poisening was, and rust no longer seemed so bad!) and lead's abbreviation on the periodic table is pb (derived from its latin name).
Plumbers are given little respect, but we wouldn't want to try to live without them.

The least respected trade. An overweight lazy person who is responsible for delivering our shit to the sewer. Often overpaid to give excuses why he or she can't finish the job. Always finds an excuse to leave the job early. When the job is finally finished gives even more excuses why it looks like a 5 completed the work
I'm a plumber because I don't like to work hard. I'm also to stupid to make it in any other trade
