party poker

It’s the plumber. I’ve come to fix the sink.

[The Electric Company (October 25, 1971)]

Used as a response. A plumber comes to a house, knocks on the door, and a parrot inside says, “whoooooooooooooo is it?” And the plumber says, “It’s the plumber. I’ve come to fix the sink.” They get stuck in a loop and the plumber eventually dies on the steps ... sound familiar?

Shaun Case (October 6, 1996)

This phrase is sampled in the dance song “De Plumber (Turn It Around)” by Anderson Armstrong.
