    Dang Yankee's

    In a small Southern town there was a nativity scene that indicated great skill and talent in its creation. One
    small feature bothered me though. The three wise men were wearing fire fighter's helmets. Totally
    unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the
    lady behind the counter about the helmets. She looked at me like I was an idiot, exclaiming, "You dang Yankees
    never do read the Bible!"

    I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible. She jerked her
    Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a
    particular passage.

    Sticking it in my face she said, "See, it says right here, 'The three wise men came from afar.'"
