    One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink it exploded into massive flames.
    The
    alarm went out to all the fire departments from miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president
    rushed
    to the fire chief and said,

    "All of our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant.

    They must be saved and I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact."

    But th eroaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments
    had to be
    called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the

    president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who
    could bring out the company's secret files.

    From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township volunteer fire company
    composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, the
    little run-down fire engine, operated by the Norwegians, passed all
    the newer sleek
    engines parked outside the plant...... and drove straight into the middle
    of the
    inferno.

    Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers jumped
    off and
    began to fight the fire with a performance and effort never seen before.

    Within a short time, the Norsk old timers had extinguished the fire and saved
    the
    secret formulas.

    The grateful chemical company ptedident joyfully announced that for such a
    superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to
    personally thank each of the brave, though elderly, Norsk fire fighters.

    The local TV news trporters rushed in after capturing the event on film asking,
    "What are you going to do with all that money?"

    "Vell." said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire cheif, "da furst thing ve do is fix da brakes on dat farking truck!"

    At first I had hoped the post was going to be along the lines of the Swedish Bikini Team, but a good one nevertheless.....
