“Porn gives people an unrealistic expectation of how quickly a plumber will get to your house”

Pornography is often accused of giving young people unrealistic expectations about sex. A joke gives a twist to this.

“Porn is so unrealistic, there’s no way you’d ever get a plumber around to your house that quickly” was posted on Twitter by Ian Pithie on June 14, 2012. “Porn gives young people an unrealistic and unhealthy idea of how quickly a plumber will come to your house” was posted on Twitter by The Shite Shadowe on January 9, 2013.  “Porn gives young people an unhealthy and unrealistic expectation of how fast a plumber will arrive at your house” was posted on Twitter by Pete Whelan on January 22, 2013.

It is not known who told the original joke.
