WE'RE GONNA NEED MORE DEODORANT

Up to 50 firefighters and four aircraft were working on the 30ha bushfire at Kew, near Port Macquarie, on Tuesday when a helicopter mistakenly drew up the wastewater from the wrong pond at the nearby sewage treatment plant and dropped it on them.

Sometimes in life you are the flusher and sometimes you are the flushee.

Rural Fire Service Association general manager Bernard Cox said he had never heard of such an incident happening before.

Bernie? Nice. =^)

Firefighters.
Sometimes you can't clean them up.
And you just can't throw them away.

Good thing there wasn't an oil refinery nearby.

Oh my God. Can you imagine the smell downwind?

It's like peeing on a fire.

Maybe this is what happened in Toronto.

At least it wasn't radioactive...

I doubt, personally, that deodorant is going to be much help. It'd be like pissing into the wind.
