rooter bong reloaded


So Al, I finally got the interview with Rooter Bong. Cost me $150 too. Wasn’t even Mr. Bong himself, it was a hired hand. He snaked the drain in the tub, pulled out a toupee.

“Do you get a lot of work because your name is a drug reference?”

Laughter, then, “Nooo. It’s his name. But when I’m on Haight Ashbury, everyone wants to take a picture of the truck. When I drive away, they say, ‘Don’t go, I want your picture!’ Then they ask for a t-shirt. ‘Send me one, for 5 dollars’ they say. It’s only for the company I tell them.”

“Bong is Filipino, right?” I ask.

“On New Year’s in Phillipines they have fireworks, and it makes that noise, Bong, Bong. We don’t say Bang. He’s a New Year’s baby, so they call him Bong.”


  1. That is freaking brilliant! Of course that is why they call him Bong. Did you get a t-shirt? Was the toupee yours or your GF? Was the worker bee a filipino also? How long did it take?

  3. Of course I asked for a Tshirt but he said no. He was Filipino as well. The hair was long and black…
    It took about 15 minutes and it made me realize I need to up my rates. I have a snake but I couldn’t get it to make the corner in the tub drain. My snake was too big and stiff I guess.

  4. Shouldn’t your landlord be paying for Rooter Bong?
