    A man with a wooden leg wanted to buy fire insurance for his leg. The first actuary quoted an annual premium of $500, estimating that the leg would burn once in 20 years and the value of the leg is $10,000. The second actuary quoted an annual premium of $50. When the second actuary was asked how he arrived at such a small figure, he replied, "This situation is right here in the fire schedule rating table. The object is a wooden structure with an upper sprinkler, isn't it?"

    If my leg were on fire I truly believe that the last thing I would do would be to expose the "Jewels" to a roaring inferno. Can't the guy just twist in a counter-clock-wise manner and unscrew the leg?

    Nah,

    Here's how it would happen. His leg would catch on fire, he'd be so excited that he would start to pee on his leg, then some numbskull would come up and try to tell him that it's raining!:banana:

    Maybe the should have given up firewalking when he lost the leg in the first place.
