A fire broke out in a six story apartment building last week in a near by town. A blonde, a redhead, and a brunette escaped the flames by climbing up onto the roof. When the fire department arrived they got out a blanket held it up and the Chief called out to the brunette to jump into the blanket. The brunette jumped. As she was falling 'swoosh' the firefighters pulled the blanket away and she landed on the street like a brick. The firefighters then held the blanket back up and the Chief told the redhead to jump. "no Way! I seen what you did to my friend." exclaimed the redhead. "I am sorry" said the Chief. My wife was a brunette and she divorced me. I just don't like brunettes. We have no problem with redheads-jump it's your only chance" So the redhead jumped. On the way down'swoosh' the firefighters pulled the blanket away and she hit the pavement like a tomato! The firefighters again held up the blanket and the Chief tolf the blonde to jump. The fire was getting worse and her only chance of survival was to jump. "No I am not jumping. I seen what you did to my two friends." "I sorry" said the Chief "I explained what happened to the brunette and well when the redhead jumped we were distracted. It will not happen again just jump!" The blonde thought for a moment. "OK I'll jump-but first I want you to lay the blanket on the ground and back away before I jump into it."

7/2/01 A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire engine with lights flashing and a wailing siren at full blast zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat next to the driver of the fire engine was a Dalmatian. The children, never having seen a dog in a fire engine before, started to discuss what the dog might be for.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.
"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."
Several more ideas were put forward and an animated discussion soon ensued when a little girl who had sat quietly throughout the discussion and deep in thought finally brought the argument to a close...
"They use the dog," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."
