OK, this one is almost too easy, and thanks to my friends who passed it along. Where do we begin. A fire chief has been suspended for his role in a refusing to remove a pair of plastic testicular replicas (aka Bumpernuts) from one of his fire trucks.
Chief Donald Fee of the Freeport (New York) Fire Department was suspended for 30 days by Freeport Mayor Andrew Hardwick. He was originally told to remove the Bumpernuts in September, but apparently the item (or items) were merely relocated to the cab where they were still visible.
The mayor was quoted as saying the Bumpernuts were “offensive, insensitive and unprofessional”.
