Cotton Wool Prank

Cotton Wool Prank

One of the favourite pranks at the fire station was when they were having fish and chips, a large piece of cotton wool was dipped in batter and lightly fried, looking bigger and much tastier than the other pieces of fish it was usually chosen by the new sprog (new recruit) or some other unsuspecting person. It never failed to add merriment to the evening.
