Why Are Fire Engines Red?

Why are fire engines red?

  • Because they’ve got 8 wheels and 4 people on them
  • 8 + 4 = 12
  • There are 12 inches in a foot
  • One foot is a ruler
  • There was a ruler named Queen Elizabeth
  • A ship named Queen Elizabeth sails the seas
  • In the seas are fish
  • On the fish are fins
  • The Fins fought the Russians
  • And Russians are red.

And that’s why fire engines are red. Because they’re always rushin’
