  • Description

    Titles read: "Fire - Fire - Fire! Bad enough when a fire occurs in the centre of a big city equipped with the latest appliances - but supposing it happens in the heart of a snowbound Continental forest? Then the fun begins - ".

    Germany.

    M/S of a fireman blowing a warning horn in a snowy street. Other firemen run out of a building and put on their helmets. They run down the street, followed by children, and come to a clearing in a forest. They put on snow-skates and pull a crude wagon containing their hose and pump along behind them. They put the end of the hose into a crack in an icy lake and start pumping. Water starts shooting out of the hose.

    No sign of any fire though! Must be just an exercise.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
