Most firemen not particularly handsome

THE majority of firefighters are pretty average looking, it has emerged.

Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that less than two per cent of fire prevention operatives have a chiselled jaw and washboard abs.

Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Most of them aren’t calendar worthy, in fact many firefighters could pass for coach drivers or members of other un-sexy professions.

“The good looking ones only do the job for about six months’ anyway before they get headhunted by a male stripper outfit like the Dream Boys and change their name to ‘Lex Montana’.”

Fireman Wayne Hayes said: “My job is charging into burning buildings and rescuing people, not to be some kind of go-to sex object for unimaginative housewives.

“However I do moisturise and exfoliate, you have to when working around all that dry air.”
