    Italian Firemen


    One dark night in the small town of Garfield, NJ, a fire started inside
    the local sausage factory. In a blink the building was engulfed in
    flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles
    around.

    When the first volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the
    sausage company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All of
    our secret sausage recipes are in the vault in the center of the
    plant. They must be saved. I will donate $50,000 to the fire department
    that brings them out and delivers them to me."

    But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire
    departments had to be called in because the situation became
    desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the
    offer to extricate the secret recipes was now $100,000 to the fire
    depa rtment that could save them.

    Suddenly from up the road, a lone siren was heard as another fire
    truck came into sight. It was the fire engine of the nearby Lodi, NJ
    volunteer fire department composed mainly of Italian firefighters over
    the age of 65.

    To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by
    these Italian firefighters, passed fire engines parked outside the
    plant, and drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the
    other firemen watched in amazement as the Italian old timers jumped off
    and began to fight the fire with a performance that was as if they were
    fighting to save their own lives. Within a short time, the Lodi old
    timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret recipes.

    The grateful sausage company president joyfully announced that for
    such a superhuman accomplishment he was upping the reward to $200,000,
    and walked over to personally thank each of the brave elderly Italian
    firefighters.

    A TV news crew rushed in after capturing the event on film. The 'on
    camera' reporter asked the
    Italian fire chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?"

    "Wella," said Chief Pasquale De Luccinellavanti, the 70-year-old fire
    chief, "de fursta tinga we gonnna do isza fixa uppa de brakes on dat
    fockinna truck
    In darkness we do what we can
    In daylight we're oblivion
