Why are Fire Engines Red?
  They have four wheels and eight men; four plus eight is twelve.
    Twelve inches make a ruler; a ruler is Queen Elizabeth.
  Queen Elizabeth sails the seven seas; the seven seas have fish.
    The fish have fins; the Finns hate the Russians.
  The Russians are red; fire engines are always rushin'.
    So they're red.
