    After recieving their new state-of-the-art apparatus, the truck company checks to make sure the engine's governed at 65mph.

    After years of complaining to the Chief about wanting a tiller....Now the truckies got one.


    Chioef stated no more minimum staffing.....we have a MAXIMUM staffing for the tiller. I need everyones weight so we don't overload it.

    "The Little Rascals Go To The Fire Department" reunion show was a great success, however, it seems that Spanky and Alfalfa and the rest of the gang had grown a bit more than the execs thought.
