Putting the blue in blue collar

Racy but harmless double-entendres on contractors’ trucks are a small fascination of mine. In my Sonoma County days, an electrician memorably vowed, “We look into your shorts,” with the two O’s in “look” having pupils that seemed to peer downward. Meanwhile, a tiler’s fleet promised: “We lay anything.”

I haven’t seen anything quite that funny since, but the slogan of Smitty’s Plumbing, on a truck spotted recently in Upland, is either No. 1 or No. 2 with me.
