Firefighter Gives Birth, Aces Promotion Exam

Despite just giving birth and getting only two hours sleep, Kent got 104 out of 110 on the test and expects to return from maternity leave in March as a captain.

Because that's just what you do, people.

(thanks, B)

One joke and one aphorism:

Joke:
Johnny came home with an excellent report card and proudly said to his Dad, "I'm second in my class!"

"Who's first?" Dad wanted to know.

"Mary Smith," Johnny replied.

"Surely, Johnny, you're not going to allow yourself to be beaten by a mere girl," said Dad.

"Well, Dad," Johnny explained, "Girls are not nearly so mere as they used to be."

Mmm.

Aphorism:
A woman must be twice as smart and work twice as hard as a man to get half as far.

Fortunately...

this is not difficult.

Ahh.

Congratulations, Ms. Kent.
