Fire Trucks Are Red

My Dad is a fireman. My Brother is a fireman. I wanted to be a fireman when I grew up. Yep, that's the problem right there.

I recall that Dad had gone somewhere on a trip for the fire department, eh 1979-80 or so. Turns out, he'd gone to Hershey, PA and came home and told me all about chocolate colored fire trucks. It must have really impressed me, because forty some years later, I still remember.

Have you ever wondered why fire trucks are red? I have, but I know. I know why fire trucks are red. I want to share this information with you, because forty years from now, I want you to remember this.

Why fire trucks are red. Because...

1 + 1 = 2
2 + 2 = 4
4 x 3 = 12
12 inches is a ruler,
A ruler is Queen Elizabeth,
The Queen Elizabeth is a ship.
Ships sail the seas, the seas have fish, the fish have fins.
The Finns fought the Russians, Russians are red.
Fire trucks are always rushin' therefore, fire trucks are red.

Pearl to Hester Prynne. "Read it!"

"Already red, eh?"

 

Peace, Y'all. I love you, Friends,
