Teach a man to build a fire he will be warm for as long as the fire lasts. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

We usually just keep ours warm in the deep fryer...

When I was a kid, we had a farrowing barn burn down because of a heat lamp, along with 12 sows with full litters of pigs. I'll never forget that smell. Burning wood + burning pig shiat + charred hair and flesh. It was... less than pleasant. The cleanup the next day was a nightmare. At least chickens wouldn't be as hard to pick up and dispose of as an 800 lb. sow. Of course they were all fully cooked, so you couldn't just pick them up or drag them without having them fall apart like an overcooked roast. A roast that just happens to have a couple hundred pounds of squishy, smelly, internal organs inside of it. Fun times.

//enjoy your breakfast!

Not to be too pedantic...but why the hell would you call it "Jamestown Township??"

\one of the few things New England has going for it - none of the silly borough/township/city crap going on
\\it's all a town, even if it has a dozen little villages in it.

I'll bet it smelled so good for blocks around the place!

Free fried chicken!

this is a sad day...for the chickens.
but I would be more worried if the cows or pigs were seen tampering with the heat lamp,
ya know, to get rid of the competition for food on the farm.
they're kinda sneaky that way.

Why in the hell does a fire truck have a license plate on it?

Maybe we have finally learned what the cow tools were really for.

wrenchboy: Why in the hell does a fire truck have a license plate on it?


they all do.  In PA they have EV (emergency vehicle) plates.  Here's the fun part, they have annual registration like your car (granted I don't believe there is a fee)

In our state they have to have plates, but down in the corner where the yearly registration sticker usually goes it just says "exempt". There's no yearly renewal to go through.

IN New York State Fire trucks are not motor vehicles they are considered apparatus and do not require a license to drive one (however you would be hard pressed to find a department that did not have a license as a requirement)

They changed it in PA a few years ago, the state lost track of what vehicles were registered to what plate, so they distributed new plates.  The yearly registration is to make sure it is still on an emergency vehicle.  Makes some sense, just more paperwork for the chief

Interesting -- PA doesn't require a commercial license to drive the apparatus, however, a regular driver license is required

Actually, found more info on it -- it's from a story called Beasts of Burden, published as several shorts by Dark Horse Comics. 
Here is the link to that particular short-story:  http://famiry.tumblr.com/post/65627603225
