    Wink I have heard it all

    SACRAMENTO, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- A National Geographic film crew in Sacramento
    attempting to disprove spontaneous human combustion called 911 after losing
    control of a burning pig carcass.
    "The pig may or may not have spontaneously ignited, but we made sure he or she
    was out," said Assistant Metro Fire Chief Jim Hartley, who responded to the
    emergency call Thursday at the state Department of Consumer Affairs lab, the
    Sacramento Bee reported.
    Pig-carcass burnings are often used to recreate crime scenes, according to
    Department of Consumer Affairs spokesman Miles Bristow.
    "The physiology, the body fat content, is similar to a human, which is why a
    pig is used. Fat can cause an intense fire when you have it."

    I would've used the ladder pipe.

    That reminds me of a story a retired Capt from the FDNY I work with told me....he was covering in Coney Island Brooklyn when he was called to a fire on the beach....he got there to find a whale that washed up on the beach and was set on fire be some locals could figure out how to get it off....so they doused it with gasoline and set it on fire...pretty funny stuff..

    Talking

    I wonder if the first-due engine had a bar-b-Q siren?

    Was the fire on a farm? Did they pull the rooster reel, or a larger hamline?

    The first-due officer said, "I never sausage a fire."

    I bet the chief showed up 30 minutes after the fire was out and was " hamming " it up for the papers.

    We watched the whale on shift just a few weeks ago. Not exactly the best decision to be made, eh? LOL

    We've been finding some funny movies on http://www.wimp.com gotta watch out though, some of them have adult content that the IT department wouldn't find very humorous.
