Man, if I had a nickel for every time THAT's happened.

A real man doesn't blame a pig on successful farts.

"All I can say is we followed through with our call."

From the sounds of it, they weren't the only ones who followed through.

My Dad used to work for a propane company and one time, he went on a leaking gas call the turned out to be a skunk spraying

A friend of mine had a similar experience when she ate a batch of bad lentil soup. Even with all the windows open her mother was concerned about a strange gas smell in the house.

Master Blaster would know what to do with that lil piggy.

This is why this story strikes me as slightly odd. Butyl seleno-mercaptan (skunk smell) is used to odorize tank gasses. To my nose, it smells nothing like the other sulfur compounds found in feces and the guts.

That's some pig!

We actually *did* have a gas leak at my ex-G/F's house, but we blamed it on her 9-year old son.

/ He proudly admitted he had "criminal gas."

// Why "criminal gas?" Because it's very, very BAD!

Ahh I see you've never had the joy of experiencing rancid egg farts.

Slightly off egg salad will do the trick. Won't make you sick but it will make others sick.

The tenants at our rental property called 911 once because there was a really strong gas smell and they thought there was a leak. We live in a small town, and we only have 4 trucks. Well, all 4 trucks showed up, along with at least 3 groups of rednecks in F350s that were listing to the scanner. All total there were about 20 people there.

Cause of the problem... dumbass forgot to turn the burner off on the stove.

I just contributed to global warming, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

wikid one: All total there were about 20 people there.

And you, being a moron, would complain if there was a real fire and they didn't bring enough people.

Did it smell like bacon?

Good God that's hilarious!

Well the 911 call consisted of "I smell gas. I think we have a leak." I'm not sure how you got "the house is burning down, send everyone in the town to the house" out of that, but nice try anyways.

firemanbuck: What a fire tanker might look like


What a fire tender might look like


In Australia, a "tanker" is a truck with a pump that carries about 4000 litres (~1000 gallons) of water. Outside of the cities, they are usually 4 wheel drive, heavy bush trucks that also do village stuff. A "pumper" is an urban vehicle with a smaller tank and bigger pump. More like the European appliances than the heavy stuff the Americans use.

That thing with wings is called an "aeroplane." Or chazzwazzer.

Here in the states, particularly the western US, we have moved from calling the large water delivery vehicles "tanker" to using "tender". The aeroplanes that drop retardant on brush fires are called "tanker". Avoids confusion on the fireground or when calling in additional resources.

Engine = pumper
Truck = ladder truck

Neat! It's a shame we can't use the kick-ass waterbombers (I think the Canadians build them) that you guys have. There's no where to skim water to refill them here.

I'm actually an American transplant...I miss the massive equipment we had back in the states. Here the "heavy pumpers" are tiny, and they don't have dedicated special services (trucks or squads). Totally different world.

At any rate, get off of Fark and have a Happy Thanksgiving! I do miss my favourite holiday!
