Somehow, it seems insensitive to call this perplexed plumber a “fail whale.” I’m waiting to see what the community dubs him.
Update 2. This plumber is like an onion: peel one layer off and you find another. Eww! Anyway, according to commenter Mike, before Bloglines our perplexed plumber came from eGroups/Onelists. Anyone have an earlier source?
