He is a dirty boy. Don’t believe me? Well here’s an example, “I can smell the butt hole, I just can’t see the butt hole.”
That’s probably my favorite. In fact, I think that says it all. Yet even with all that filthy, dirty, smelly, talk, I can't help but find him adorable, even when he’s covered in blood, puke and poo.
It’s phraseology like that little maxim above that keeps me coming back every Tuesday whether I need it or not. It speaks to his tenacity really. Most men would give up when they smelled the butt hole but not him, oh no not him; he kept looking until he found it.
This week he played the role of a snake wrangler, other weeks he has taken on the duties of a sewer inspector and even a marble roller.
If you’re at all familiar the show Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe then you know he has worked many many jobs over the years and been subjected to more kinds of fluids, of all types, than you ever thought existed.
In the episode where he coined the phrase, “I can smell the butt hole, I just can't see the butt hole.” he was working with a snake conservationist capturing, tagging, measuring and sexing endangered snakes before releasing them back into Lake Erie.
And everybody knows there’s only one way to sex a snake. You got to find the butt hole and then… well, you get the idea.
Here’s a little clip from the show. Enjoy!
