FIRE JOKE OF THE WEEK: Clever Johnny and the smoke detector

Published:  19 September, 2014

Clever Johnny’s class were very excited to be going on a field trip to find out all about fire safety and fire fighting.

Clever Johnny's primary school class went on a school trip to the local fire station as part of a community fire safety initiative.

To encourage take up of smoke detectors, the firefighter giving the presentation held up a detector and asked: ‘I hope all of you have one of these in your house – they are very important. Does anyone know what it is?’

Clever Johnny's hand immediately shot up and the firefighter pointed at him.

Clever Johnny replied: ‘Daddy says that that's how Mummy knows supper is ready!’
