One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota.........

.....,a fire started in a local chemical plant and in the blink of an exploded into massive flames.The alarm went out to all fire department for miles around.When the fire fighters appeared on the scene,the chemical company president said to the fire chief "all our secret formulas are in a vault in the center of the plant and must be saved.I'll pay 50 grand to the fire department that brings them out intact.

But the roaring flames held the fire fighters back.

Soon more fire trucks were called in as the situation became desperate,as the firemen arived the president upped the prize to 100 grand for any crew that could bring the secrets out intact.

From the distance a lone siren was heard as an other fire truck came in sight, it was the nearby Norwegian rural township volonteer fire company,composed mainly of norwegians over the age of 65.
To everyone's amazement that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant.

Without even slowing down it drove straight in the middle of the inferno,Outside,the other fireman watched as the norwegian old timers jumped right in the middle of the fire and fought it back on all sides.It was a performance and effort never seen before.





Within a short time the Norsk old timers had the fire extinguised and had the secrets formulas saved.The gratefull company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to 200 grand and walked over to personally thank each of these brave old firefighters.

The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film,asking their chief,..."what are you going to do with all that money?"


"Vell".. said Ole Larsen,the 70 year old fire chief,...."Da first thing ve gonne do is fix da brakes on dat ******* trock!".
