Searing to new heights

[Ed: A JEDR is an generic acronym for a Joke Ethnic/Denomination/Race. It is
pronounced Jedder.]

A large oil field in Oklahoma suffers a disaster in the form of a huge rig
fire. The foreman, desperate to curtail the blaze, thumbs through the phone
book for Red Adairs number (Red is a famous oil-firefighter). Foreman finds
the number, calls, and is told that Red is unavailable, since hes fighting an
off-shore rig fire in Southern California.

Desperate, the foreman returns to the book and finds, listed under Red Adair,
a Red <suitable JEDR surname>, advertising rig fire services at $100 per
hour. Since this is CONSIDERABLY cheaper than Adair anyway, the guy calls and
describes the situation. He is assured that someone will be on the scene
within the hour.

True to his word, within 45 minutes the foreman sees a vehicle approaching the
scene of the blaze at top speed. As it gets closer, he notes that it is a
grungy 68 pickup, with a load of JEDRs in the back. Without slowing,
the pickup drives directly into the middle of the fire, everyone in the back
jumps out with soaking-wet blankets, and with intense screaming and running
around, proceed to beat out the fire completely.

Red approaches the foreman and gives him a bill for $100 (one hour minimum)
The foreman is so impressed, he offers him an additional $500 bonus for the
prompt and effective work. Man, this will REALLY help, says Red.

Oh? says the foreman. How so?

Now I can go buy brakes for the truck.
