A firefighter was working on the engine outside the Pocomoke fire station, when he noticed a little boy nearby in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides and a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle.
The boy was wearing a firefighters helmet.
The wagon was being pulled by his dog and his cat.
The firefighter walked over to take a closer look.
'That sure is a nice fire truck,' the firefighter said with admiration.
'Thanks,' the boy replied. The firefighter looked a little closer. The boy had tied the wagon to his dog's collar and to the cat's testicles.
'Little partner,' the firefighter said, 'I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar, I think you could go faster.'
