One night in a sleepy town the chemical plant explodes into flames. The
alarm goes out and departments from miles around race to the scene.
After fighting the fire for over an hour the chemical company president
approaches the fire chief, "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 engine company that brings them out safely!"
With this the firemen attack with a renewed gusto. Two hours later they
still have not gained any ground. With this the company president offers
$100,000 to the engine company that brings out the company's secret
files. In the distance a lone siren is heard and soon another fire truck
comes into sight. The fire chief realizes that is that little rinky-dink
volunteer fire company composed entirely of men over 65. Much to his
amazement the fire engine races through the chemical plant gates and drives
right into the middle of the inferno. He can see these old timers hopping
off their rig and fighting the fire with an effort that he has never seen
Less than an hour later the fire is out and the secret formulas have been
saved by this group of volunteers! The chemical company president is so
estatic he doubles the reward to $200,000! After thanking the volunteers
the chemical company president can't help but ask what they will do with
the reward money. The engineer (driver) looks him right in the eye...
"First thing we do is fix the fucking brakes on that truck!"
