Nick Huckson, owner/operator of The Sault's Plumber, has heard of it but doesn't really know what Reddit is.

All he knows is after a photo of his new business truck decal was posted to the media sharing site, he's been inundated with phone calls.

No doubt considering the image currently sits in the top 3 of the ‘Funny’ subreddit and has been viewed by millions of readers.

It’s also been featured on Mashable and The Chive.

“Everyone loves it. Driving around from job to job today, people are giving me a thumbs up,” Huckson told SooToday.

In an effort to make his new business stand out – The Sault's Plumber has been in operation just six short weeks – the 25-year-old entrepreneur took his decal idea to Lori and Randy Perin at Classic Signs to make his vision a reality.

“I wanted something that people would remember,” he said. “As soon as they looked at my truck, I wanted it to stick in their mind.”

With a last name like Huckson, he has a family plumbing reputation to live up to.

“I’m trying to carry the Huckson legacy,” he told us. “I’m a third generation plumber, and my grandfather (Bill Huckson) has been a big inspiration to me. He’s 88 years old has been pushing me to get into business for myself.”

In fact, the official business logo for The Sault's Plumber is the original W. Huckson Plumbing logo from the 1960s.

As for the toilet door decal, Huckson says he has yet to receive any negative feedback, although he’s expecting it to happen.

And he’s resigned himself to wearing a green shirt every day to work.

It’s a good thing he has a dozen of them hanging in his closet.
