    This ugly duckling has become a beautiful swan.
    Why would you want to kill it?
    I knew someone who ate Spam once.
    And didn't the monkey in "Indiana Jones" eat a Fig Newton and die?

    Talking Top Ten Reasons................

    This thread is still going because:

    10. It's trying to make it to the David Letterman Show.

    9. It's trying to make it to the Jerry Springer Show.

    8. It wants to outlive Spam and Fig Newtons.

    7. It wants to outlive MiniMe.

    6. It is waiting for the Fog vs Smoothbore debate to end.

    5. It's waiting for GWCFI to Embrace the radical Left.

    4. It can't decide which Lightbar would look best on a Toyota.

    3. It has not had a Piece of Cake from Cheffie's Kitchen.

    2. It's waiting on a Fire Act Grant.

    And now, the reason why this thread isn't dead yet:

    1. People keep posting on it.

    Perhaps we should measure thread longevity in half-lives so we could compete with Twinkies, Fig Newtons, and Spam.

    Now there is an idea. Would eating twinkies, fig newtons and spam make you immortal? Im sure if you ate enough of them, you would take on their characteristics. Such as living forever.

    Good thing you said you were joking.


    Would eating twinkies, fig newtons and spam make you immortal?
    Since twinkies,spam and fig newtons are made from preservatives, I do believe that would make you an immortally spammed newton with a cream filling.

    I could see the smoke from the airport, when I left work at 1700.

    No, it wasn't. Our truck was in for repairs and we were in a reserve rescue. We would have been the 4th due truck company if we had our regular apparatus.

    I'm certainly not sorry I missed it though. Standing around flypiping in 96 degree heat for 4 hours on a warehouse that had no exposures didn't really seem like any fun to me.

    We had a probie assigned to our crew that day that was itching to go. I tried explaining to him the reasons that he didn't want to go there.

    We sent the pumper and rescue from our house there. They spent the whole time bouncing from Chief to Chief for orders in full gear and never really did anything. In all, there were 5 flypipes working and numerous other master streams.

    The monkey in Indiana Jones at a date, which, much like a fig (same thing?) are supposedly in fig newtons.

    Also, while i'm adding my two cents, i'll just throw in the fact that i haven't eaten a twinkie since like 2nd grade but i have a Twinkie jones now.

    Yeah...the one that's locked in the basement...No one ever talks about "Twinkie Jones". Suprsingly enough all he is fed is Spam...and in his free time (which he has alot of since he is locked in the basement), he contemplates the effects of dark suckers vs. light givers.
    The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine
