Driving through a small Southern town I saw a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it.  One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing  firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I  decided to stop at a "Quick Stop" on the edge of town.  I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets.

She responded in annoyance, "You Yankees never do read the  Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply recall anything  about firemen in the Bible.
She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar.'"
