  2. markm says:

    Firefighter: “..yeah, lots of liquids. It’s important to quickly replace lost fluids after putting out a fire..”

  3. markm says:

    On a firetruck centerfold shoot: “JEEZE FRED..why don’t you get a camera…it lasts longer”

  4. G.A.Phillips says:

    Anyone got the number for Adams towing?

  5. elliot says:

    Give it a minute and the tanks will be filled, I hate it when the hydrants don’t work.

  6. Wyatt Earp says:

    Sadly, the LAFD engine sunk because it did not have enough junk in the trunk.

  7. jmccomb says:

    “At least we still have 30 million. With out them, we’d really be sunk.”

  8. DL says:

    Im sorry I told them to fill up the truck with water in case there’s a fire.

    He claims his GPS is off by twenty-five feet.

    He’s been using this same boat launch for twenty years and thought it was Saturday.

    Al Gore was right – the seas are rising.

    Well at least the fire in his ashtray is out.

    They say he was listening to the President’s speech when he suddenly went beserk.

    Sal’s hard of hearing -they said fire at Belmont Place and he thought they said, Belmont Lake.

  9. FormerHostage says:

    “Mythbusters” is getting weirder all the time.

    They renamed the truck “Excalibur.”

    This is why we can never have anything nice!

    You moron! You’re supposed to put the hose in the water, not the whole pump truck!

  10. FormerHostage says:

    The hardest part was hanging it up to dry.

  11. The firetruck remained alert as it drank, lest it fall victim to any crocodiles that might be lurking in the waterhole.

  12. floyd says:

    A frustrated Fire truck tries to extinguish the “fire down below” without deploying a hose!

  13. Alex says:

    You’re gonna need a bigger boat.

  14. And I thought potholes in Detroit were bad…

    After fighting what seemed to be the same fire year after year, Engine 60 decided decided to take its own life.

  15. Jason Lewis says:

    How do you know when “Ice Road Trucker” season is over?

  16. elliot says:

    Dudley, look what you did! Will ya quit leaning on the bumper?

  17. elliot says:

    Cool, there’s my contact. Thanks.

  18. peterh says:

    Water broke…..check
    Rear end up…..check
    Who’s got the friggin’ forceps…..

  19. Wyatt Earp says:

    In hindsight, letting Paris Hilton drive was not the nest idea.

  20. Wyatt Earp says:


    Sorry about that.

  21. Alex Knapp says:

    Look, strange women lying in ponds, distributing fire trucks to people is no basis for determining who should fight fires. Civil service derives from a basis of meritocracy, not some farcical aquatic ceremony!

  22. elliot says:

    Frank admitted his driving record with the fire company was not stellar, he just had a few bad ‘brakes’.

  23. Hermoine says:

    “The water broke and the baby came out here.”

  24. Hodink says:

    Man By The Tree – “I told the wife, ‘I hope this isn’t another WTF day.’ Sure enough, it is.”

  25. Brian Knapp says:

    Fire in the hole!

  26. Rachel Edith says:

    “Up where I live, we wash ’em using a hose but dunking the thing in a mud puddle is good.”

  27. FormerHostage says:

    Squatting fireman: Well I’ll be! You’re right Fred. It says, right there on the instructions: “Just add water.”

  28. FormerHostage says:

    Fred, if you don’t stop humming “Anchors Aweigh” I’m gonna pop you one!

  29. CalD says:

    Fightin’ fires is thirsty work.

  30. elliot says:

    Tell that guy over there that we will be right there to save his house. We have our own ‘fire’ to put out.

  31. elliot says:

    Damn, I can put out raging infernos, blazing forest fires and a flaming oil tanker, the whole nine yards. So, how do you put out a flood?
