Talking Norwegian Fire Fighters

Norwegian Firemen

One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the
local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive
flames.

The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around.

When the volunteer 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 center 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 firefighters off.

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 Norwegian rural township volunteer Fire Company
composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65.

To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by these Norwegians, 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 Norwegian old timers jumped off and
began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before.
Within a short time, the Norske 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, Norske 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?"

"Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "da furst ting vedo is
fix da brakes on dat foocking truck!"
