Whoa! Thank You!

I've several about the home myself, and given many out as gifts over the years. Xmas cards will be including notice.

Real men only need use a stern glance.

Fire extinguishers are for Nancy Boys who lack pectoral muscles and facial hair.



Really though... plastic... they used plastic... *sighs*

My name is Brian. But you can call me Nancy.

My 90 year old Mom lives with me. I have fire extinguishers everywhere.

The question then becomes... do they work?

For a nominal fee, I can provide you with a copy of my book...

"With confidence. Bending reality with force of will."

It only costs $55.32 for a digital copy... that's a $3.00 value!

And if you act now... I'll include the pamphlet "How not to fall for Robert Z's Bulls@*$"...

That's a $200 value right there!

Back to seriousness though... there's reasons why fire extinguishers need to be serviced every year, and inspected every 30 days.

Not to mention, you'd be surprised how many folks don't know how to deploy, much less properly interdict a fire.

Or when they shouldn't deploy anything more than their GTFO plan.

One should not play with fire without the proper toys.

Or as I heard once...

"Don't F$&@ with fire without prophylaxis." Of course, it was cruder, more direct, and a whole lot funnier in person...

So if you ARE going to have extinguishers lying about, make sure...

1. They are in proper working order.

2. Everyone in the building understands HOW to use them and WHEN to use them.

Otherwise, they're a waste of time and money.
