They give this fire 3 out of five alarms. It’s got a good flame, but you can’t stop, drop, and roll to it.

I’m not a fire extinguisher. That puts out a fire.
I’m a fire distinguinsher. I just tell you when you’ve got a fire.*

You’ve got a fire.*

Peace and freezing CO2 vapor be upon him.

Actually, I now realize the sign makes total sense. Recall from a previous English entry that guests are “extinguished”, and therefore, fires are “distingui(n)shed”.
