I find it hard to believe anything is a "first" for firefighters anymore

I thought it would be a fark swing.

God damn emo kids.

But first...they had to take off any restrictive clothing.

/wrong?

I would never put my kids in that thing. It's a death trap!
If I were one of the firefighters, I would have taken pictures first. How many buildings burned down while they were saving that TWIT!

We're returning to the Swing generation?

At least the chair didn't have any slats. Those are dangerous.

My sons are both adults and they turned out great. Just because your parents messed up with you does not means all kids are farking snowflakes!

I'm just here to say I'm glad daffy would never force her adult sons into a child-size swing.

Ok. I did mean that I would not have put them in when they were kids. Thanks for the mental picture. I' still laughing!

Nice how they so willingly believe her, yet those same firemen would snicker and chortle if some poor sod slipped in the shower and ended up with a shampoo bottle stuck up his arse.
 
2008-04-16 07:32:34 AM  
Hardly a first.

Speaking from experience?
 
2008-04-16 07:53:21 AM  
Is that the alcatraz version of a baby swing or somthing.
 
2008-04-16 07:54:10 AM  
Is it the frank or the beans?

pics or it didn't happen.

First full-on LOL of the day.

I would also have taken pictures first, for the annual Christmas party, for the worst case scenario training manual.

Who wouldn't? Does that bring back bad memories for you?

/nothing surprises me anymore

Yeah, I wonder if the teen was so very scared, with morale still low...

A friend of mine was drunk and took a bet that she could fit a doorknob in her mouth. Of course, at the time she was only wearing a thong.

Weeeeelllll.... turns out she CAN get the doorknob in her mouth... just not back out.

They had to call the fire department to come help.

Bonus: Her friends with her were too drunk to think to cover her up.

Double Bonus: Her father and brother both worked for the fire department.

That comment is useless without pics. Heh.

/obligatory
//have friends who are firefighters, get to hear goofy stories like that one all the time.
///especially the USAF firefighter, his stories are the best.

What do the firefighters have that I don't to pry someone from a child swing? I'm not sure I'd call the fire department to free my child - is my ingenuity that lacking? Am I willing to admit I'm unable to free my own child? How embarrassing.

I'd still take pics, though. Embarrassing your child is A-OK.

We get atleast 3 or 4 calls a summer like this.

A teenage neighbour of mine got her hand stuck in one of those stacking donut toys.

That maybe was a first for the crew, definitely not a first (or a last) for the fire department.

Personally, I can't say that I've rescued someone from a swing (yet), but I can say that I have rescued someone who managed to get their head stuck between the railings on the stairs (fully grown man) and I've rescued a beaver that was frozen to the surface of a lake.

/Can't wait until the swings get put in the park
//This will be the year, I can feel it

Firefighters free naked man from plastic toddler's swing in public park

Nothing is new on Fark. Bonus points: this guy was naked.

Although there are websites that cater to that...and dressing them up as little girls...REALLY creepy...not that I would know anything about that...
