    'Biggest Loser' Competition Gets Dirty Between Fla. Firefighters, Police



    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The police and fire departments of Palm Beach County have begun a friendly competition.
    Seventy deputies are squaring off against 70 fire and rescue workers to see which side can loose the most weight.
    The challenge was announced Tuesday, and already they're fighting dirty. A mysterious gift showed up shortly after the announcement in the sheriff's office — two dozen doughnuts, courtesy of guess who? Deputies volleyed back with McDonald's cheeseburgers.
    Both departments say they'll benefit from the new contest, regardless of who wins.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I was hoping for more juicy stuff like cops spiking the hose draggers' chili or hiding their gym equipment or cutting down their hammocks... you know, interfere with stuff that firemen do on duty.:whistling:

    Boys, remember. This was just in the first 24 hours. You always test your enemy to probe for weak points. When you found one, then the real attacks begin. :supergrin:

    Yeah... I'm going to tell the Girl Scouts to set up in front of the local supermarkets so you can't park your engine in front of the place anymore and make you park in the back and walk.

    Ohhh! Leave it to the basement savers to find the chink in my armor! Not only would I not lose weight, but I haven't yet found a way to get powdered sugar off my pants! Not fair!

    And yeah, I thought it was going to be actual fisticuffs as well... Half glad it's not, half disappointed cuz of the entertainment factor.
