I did say Yellow fire trucks

I was at my Fire Station (where I volunteer) a few weeks ago when a local newspaper reporter stopped by to do a story on the color of fire trucks. They wanted to talk to Pingree Grove because our fire truck are Yellow. The Chief and I (Public Information Officer) told the story of why our fire trucks are not red. If you are curious, the on-line version of the print article is here

Funny article, and good quote, "...school bus...". LOL

This reminds me of a crazy thing I learned years ago:

2 + 2 is 4.
4 x 2 is 12.
12 inches is a foot.
A foot is a ruler.
Queen Elizabeth is a ruler.
Queen Elizabeth is also a ship.
A ship sails the sea.
The sea has fishes.
Fishes have fins.
The Finns fought the Russians.
Russians are red.

That's why fire engines are red.
They are always rushin' around.

The second line should be "4 x 3 is 12"

Whats wrong with a yellow fire truck, i can't see anything wrong with it. The color doesn't matter as long as it performs its task.
