The Second Coming?

Yesterday I posted up a rather naff bit of drivel titled ‘The Sucu Cometh’ about our trials and tribulations with water and plumbers. To my utter astonishment the hits on this are going through the roof with no signs, as yet, of any abatement.

Why? Stats show that Stumble Upon is the source of these hits and the Eastern and Mid-Western US the origin of the ‘hitters’. As the sunrise spreads westwards the hits move along with it. Duration of stay is fairly short which indicates some serious disappointment from those seekers after ‘something’ – my question is – what is that something? Tags for Plumbers; Flanders and Swann; Gasman; Tommy Steele or Solar Heating System don’t really cut it.

Then I remembered a post from Jack at Perking the Pansies a while back, about his nephew’s lyric writing that went viral because a bunch of bods in the US thought it was a sign-up for some talent show, and this got me thinking (usually a rather disordered process). The title of my post is ‘The Sucu Cometh’ and in great swathes of the US (a terrible generalisation, I

know) there are seekers after some sort of ‘Rapture’ or ‘Second Coming’ and a ‘Sucu’ or Plumber just might be fitting their bill. After all, first time around the ‘Messiah’ chap was a ‘Marangoz’ or Carpenter so why not a Plumber in the next life?

Hey! Archers could build a real cult following here – maybe I’ll do a new post about ‘Emlakci (Estate Agent) Walks on Water’. Nah! I think that’s pushing credibility a bit too far!
