    It doesn't mean anything. Mr. Clean's been "wearing" an earring since the 50's, if not longer (don't know how long he's been around but I remember the 50's commercials) ~ and the earring was even larger back then. He always gave me the impression of a genie in white American clothes.

    I always got that "genie" vibe from him too.

    ok I went looking & found this at wikipedia so take it for what it's worth...
    Image

    The product's mascot is the character Mr. Clean. In 1957, Harry Barnhart conceived the idea and Ernie Allen in the art department at the advertising agency Tatham-Laird & Kudner in Chicago, Illinois drew Mr. Clean as a muscular, tanned, bald man who cleans things very well.

    According to Procter & Gamble, the original model for the image of Mr. Clean was a United States Navy sailor from the city of Pensacola, Florida, although some people may think he is a genie based on his earring, folded arms, and tendency to appear magically at the appropriate time. Hal Mason, the head animator at Cascade Pictures in Hollywood, modified the pre-existing artwork in print advertising to be more readily used for the television commercials written, produced and directed by Thomas Scott Cadden. (Cadden also wrote the words and music for the original Mr. Clean jingle — see below.) The first actor to portray Mr. Clean in live action television commercials was the late House Peters, Jr. Peters died from pneumonia at the age of 92 on October 1, 2008.[8]

    Mr. Clean has always smiled, except for a brief time in the mid 1960s during the "Mean Mr. Clean" series of ads when he was frowning because he hated dirt. Although Mr. Clean is the strong, silent type, he did speak once in a television commercial where live actor (Mark Dana) appeared playing Mr. Clean in a suit and tie in the mid-1960s.

    Mr. Clean most recently appears (with permission) on the September 2010 cover of Biz X Magazine.

    Mr Clean is a genie from the '50s? yeah right

    Like Liberace was a 'metrosexual' from the '50s.

    Mr. Clean wears an earring because he is every girls Best Gay Friend who visits during the day and is meticulous about cleaning house.
