Friday Wisdom – Firefighting

Recently a shoe factory in my town burned down. After the fire was put out they only found one shoe left.  It was the sole survivor.

My father use to say, “fight fire with fire.” That likely accounts for why the fire department wouldn’t hire him.

Did you hear about the firefighter who had two sons? One was named Jose, the other HoseB.

What did the fire chief say when the church caught fire? “Holy Smoke!”

How many fire fighters does it take to change a light bulb?  Three: Two to cut a hole in the roof and one to change the bulb.

A fire fighter has two eyes.  What does a ballerina have?  Two, too

Did you hear about the fire fighter who was injured rescuing a cat? Yeah, he went too far out on a limb.

So it was three in the morning and there was this guy pounding on my door yelling, “We have to save you or you’ll burn!”  Turns out it was a fireman …

  8. You have a great conversational ‘written voice’. I could ‘hear’ it as I read. Felt like a stand-up comedy show!
