MAJOR HOOPLE WAS A COMIC STRIP YEARS AGO.
THE MAJOR WAS A BLOW-HARD-KNOW-IT-ALL.
WAS THIS THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM "HOOPLE"???

The comic strip was called "Our Boarding House" and had a cast of characters that resided there. Come to think of it...a lot of the personalities fit those of firefighters to a "T"...it could have been called "Our Firehouse"!
Major Amos Hoople was the head of the household....he wore a fez and came across as a blow hard know it all, but he had a heart of gold (sounds like someone everyone knows, doesn't it!)
Major Amos: the original "Hoople!"
Firefighters: Todays heroes protecting everyones tomorrows!
