old but good

One dark night in the small town of Garfield, NJ, a fire started inside
the local sausage factory. In a blink the building was engulfed in flames.

The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around
When the first volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the
sausage company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All of our
secret sausage recipes are in the vault in the center of the plant. They
must be saved. I will donate $50,000 to the fire department that brings
them out and delivers them to me."

But the roaring flames held the fire-fighters off. Soon more fire
departments had to be called in because the situation became desperate As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer to extricate the secret recipes was now $100,000 to the fire department that could save them.

Suddenly from up the road, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck
came into sight It was the fire engine of the nearby Lodi, NJ volunteer
fire department composed mainly of Italian firefighters over the age of 65.

To everyone's amazement, the little run-down fire engine, operated by
these Italian firefighters, passed fire engines parked outside the plant,
and drove straight into the middle of the inferno.

Outside, the other firemen watched in amazement as the Italian old
timers jumped off and began to fight the fire with a performance that was
as if they were fighting to save their own lives. Within a short time, the
Lodi old timers had extinguished the fire and saved the secret recipes.

The grateful sausage company president joyfully announced that for such a superhuman accomplishment he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave elderly Italian firefighters.

A TV news crew rushed in after capturing the event on film. The 'on camera' reporter asked the Italian fire chief, "What are you going to do
with all that money?"

"Wella," said Chief Pasquale De Luccinellavanti, the 70-year-old fire
chief, "de fursta tinga we gonna do isza fixa uppa de brakes on dat
