I was behind this truck a few months ago, and of course I took a picture of it because I found it totally confusing. But in an awesome way. Then I kinda forgot about it because my attention span is really, really short unless the topic is Paul Rudd or Laverne and Shirley. But The Universe obviously wanted me to remember it because I was behind it and all of its awesomeness again yesterday. How, oh how, could I have ever forgotten about this? This is like, the best truck EVER! I can’t even begin to understand what it means, but that is the genius of it. Obviously the owners of this truck are some kind of plumbers and they can totally replumb your entire house. And they also seem to be adept at replacing pipes. With keys that turn or something. I’m not at all sure what that means. But because I like to be really researchy and stuff I went to their website to find out, but there were a whole lot of mechanical sounding words and things that were extremely boring, so I got distracted and gave up. But I did send them an email inquiring about the wet cat:
Dear Delta Mechanical,
I was behind one of your trucks and I was curious…why is there a sad, wet cat on the back door of this truck? This causes me great confusion and I hope that you can help me to understand the scenario in which this cat got so totally drenched. And sad. Although I guess as far as cats are concerned, drenched and sad go hand in hand, since cats hate being wet. Except that cat I saw once on You Tube who liked to waterski. But I’m pretty sure he was duck taped to those skis. Or hot glued. And he looked pretty pissed.
Anyway, I would like to know what happened to this particular cat. Was he involved in a pipe bursting accident? Was he accidentally flushed down a toilet? Is he actually dry but just likes to wear hair gel and have that wet look? And if so, does he know that look was over, like, 20 years ago? Also, was this photo taken during a real pipe emergency, or was this a model/stunt cat? If it was a model cat, I would like to volunteer my cat to pose for your next truck photos. Free of charge. Because (a) She’s really photogenic, and (b) She hates being wet and since she’s on my bad side right now I’d really like to teach her a lesson. You can even stick her in a toilet if you want, because I think that would make a really awesome truck picture. I bet you’d get, like, thousands of calls. Most of them from animal rights people, but even animal rights people need plumbers. Am I right?
If you would be so kind as to answer my questions, I would greatly appreciate it and will think of you guys if ever I have a plumbing catastrophe. Get it? CATatstrophe! Feel free to use that in one of your ads.
Unfortunately, I haven’t heard back from them yet, which if you ask me, is really pretty rude, because obviously my questions were of the utmost importance. So if I’ve learned anything here it’s that plumbers don’t really have good manners. And cats look really funny wet.
