  • seen this one before?

    One dark night outside a small town, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink it exploded into flames. The alarm went out to the fire departments for miles around.

    When the fire-fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the centre of the plant. They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact!"

    But the roaring flames held the fire-fighters back. Soon, more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files.

    From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby rural township volunteer fire company, composed entirely of men over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine passed all the newer sleek engines parked outside the plant ... and drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside the other firemen watched as the old timers jumped off and began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the old timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret formulas.

    The grateful chemical company president joyfully announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave, though elderly, fire-fighters.

    The local TV news reporters rushed in after capturing the event on film asking, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Well," said the 70-year-old fire chief, "The first thing we're going to do is fix the brakes on that old truck!"
