Well, Ole and Lena went to the same Lutheran Church. Lena went every Sunday and taught Sunday School. Ole went on Christmas and Easter and once in awhile, he went on one of the other Sundays.

On one of those Sundays, he was in the pew right behind Lena and he noticed what a fine looking woman she was.

While they were taking up the collection, Ole leaned forward and said, “Hey, Lena, how about you and me go to dinner in New Ulm next Friday?”

“Yah, Ole, that would be nice,” said Lena.

Well, Ole couldn’t believe his luck. All week long he polished up his old Ford, and on Friday he picked Lena up and took her to the finest restaurant in New Ulm.

When they sat down, Ole looked over at Lena and said, “Hey, Lena, vould you like a cocktail before dinner?”

“Oh, no, Ole,” said Lena. “Vat vould I tell my Sunday School class?”

Ole was set back a bit, so he didn’t say much until after dinner. Then he reached in his pocket and pulled out a pack of cigarettes. “Hey, Lena,” said Ole, “would you like a smoke?”

“Oh, no, Ole,” said Lena. “Vat vould I tell my Sunday School class?”

“What have I done? What have I done?” thought Ole. He shook Lena and she woke up. “Lena, I’ve got to ask you one thing,” said Ole. “What are you going to tell your Sunday School class?”

“Lena said, “The same ting I alvays tell dem. You don’t have to smoke and drink to have a good time!”

The Pope is a terrible driver, he goes up on the sidewalk, he doesn’t stop to pay the parking lot toll: it isn’t three minutes before a policeman pulls him over.

The policeman sees right away that he has a problem, so he calls his supervisor down at the station and says “I need help! I have to give a ticket to someone here who’s really important.”

“Is it the Mayor?”

“No, more important than the Mayor?”

“Is it the Senator?” “No, more important than the Senator.”

“I didn’t ask for any details”, the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine!’?”

Ole said, “Vell, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road….”

The lawyer interrupted again and said, “Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.”

By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Ole’s answer and said to the lawyer, “I’d like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule, Bessie”.

Ole thanked the Judge and proceeded. “Vell as I vas saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and vas driving her down the highway ven dis huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side.

The surveyor looked at Ole and Lena for a response, but instead of them being upset, they looked pleased.

I’ve been sitting here blowing on this tailpipe for two hours now, and I don’t think it’s working.

Ole says, “Sven, don’t be such a dummy! You have to close the windows first!”



Sven and Ole buy a mule. But when they get it home, they can’t get it into the barn. It just won’t go.

Sven says, “I know just the problem. He won’t fit through the door. His ears are too long.”

Ole sees that Sven is right, thinks a bit, and then says, “I know what we can do. We should raise the barn by a foot, so he’ll fit.”

Sven asks, “Wouldn’t it be easier to dig a ditch for him to walk in?”

Ole says, “Sven, don’t be such a dummy! It’s his ears that are too long, not his legs!”



Ole is on his deathbed. The doctor has told him he has only a few hours to live. He catches the scent of his favorite bars wafting through the air.

Ole replies, “Well you see, those nails they’re pointing towards the house, I can use them. But these nails… they’re pointing away from the house, they’re useless.”

“Ole you IDIOT!!” Sven replies, “those nails aren’t something you just throw away willy nilly… those nails are for the other side of the house.”

He teaches Ole everything there is to know about protection and (vell ya know). At the register, the pharmacist asks Ole how many he’d like to buy; a 3-pack, a 10-pack, or a family pack. Ole insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be very busy, it being his first time and all.

That night, Ole shows up at the Lena’s parent’s house and meets her at the door. “Ole I’m so excited for you ta meet my parents, come on in.” Ole goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where Lena’s parents are seated. Ole quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes and Ole is still deep in prayer with his head down. Three minutes of praying pass and still no movement from Ole. Finally, after five minutes of praying with his head down, Lena leans over and whispers to her Ole, “I had no idea you vere so religious.”

Ole turns and whispers back, “I had no idea your father vas a pharmacist.”

“No, you were doing fifty”, replied the cop.

“Really, Officer, I vas only doing tirty”, Ole replied stubbornly.

Ole died. So Lena went to the local paper to put a notice in the obituaries. The gentleman at the counter, after offering his condolences, asked Lena what she would like to say about Ole.

Lena replied, “You yust put ‘Ole died’.”

The gentleman, somewhat perplexed, said, “That’s it? Just ‘Ole died?’ Surely, there must be something more you’d like to say about Ole. If its money you’re concerned about, the first five words are free. We must say something more.”

So Lena pondered for a few minutes and finally said, “O.K. You put ‘Ole died. Boat for sale.’ ”

Ole: “Yah, but I don’t vake up until 7.”



Ole went to the doctor for a physical. After Ole was dressed the doctor came in and said “I am sorry Ole, but you are very sick and have only a few weeks to live”.

Ole went home with a heavy heart to tell Lena the news. After Ole told Lena he sat in his easy chair and Lena went to the kitchen. Soon a heavenly aroma came from the kitchen. Lena was making his favorite cookies! “Lena must really love me” he thought. Ole went into the kitchen and started to take a cookie. Lena slapped his hand away and said “Get avay! Dese cookies aren’t for you, der for da funeral!”



One particular Sunday Ole was lying back in the hammock and, having just returned from church with Lena, he was feeling a little religious.

Ole, Lena, and little Ole went to the big City for the first time. They were walking down the street and looking in the windows of the big buildings. Little Ole spotted something that caught his eye and ran into a building. Big Ole and Lena followed him. There they all stood in front of a shiny metal door that was cut into a wall of black marble. A chubby, elderly, gray haired lady walked up and pushed a button on the wall next to the door. The door opened and she walked into the little room behind the shiny door. The door closed and the numbers above the door counted up and then down again. The shiny doors opened and a beautiful, well built, young lady walked out.

Little Ole said, “What kind of machine is dat, Pa?”

Big Ole replied, “I don’t know little Ole, but push dat button and shove your Ma in der.”

Minnesota’s worst air disaster occurred earlier today when a Cessna 152, a small two-seater plane, crashed into a Norwegian cemetery here early this morning.

Ole and Sven, working as search and rescue workers, have recovered 826 bodies so far, and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the night.



Sven & Ole were working for the city of Minneapolis. Sven would dig a hole – he would dig, dig, dig. Ole would come along and fill the hole – fill, fill, fill. Sven and Ole worked furiously; one digging a hole, the other filling it up again.

A man was watching from the sidewalk and couldn’t believe how hard these men were working, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. Finally he had to ask them.

He said to Sven the hole digger, “I appreciate how hard you work, but what are you doing? You dig a hole and your partner comes along behind you and fills it up again!”

Sven, hole digger replied, “Yeah, I suppose it does look funny, but Lars, da guy who plants da trees is sick today.”



Ole always caught his limit of fish and he would never tell anyone his secret. Finally the Game Warden threatened to take away Ole’s license unless Ole taught him how he did it.

Ole finally agreed to meet him early one morning to go fishing. The Game Warden came with six rods and three tackle boxes, so he’d be ready for anything. Ole showed up with a small brown paper bag.

They climbed in a row boat and Ole rowed out to a spot on the lake. Ole then opened his bag and pulled out a stick of dynamite, lit it and tossed it into the water. After an explosion and shower of water, dozens of fish floated to the surface. Ole started to row the boat around picking up fish.

The Game Warden was surprised and furious. He shouted, “Ole, you can’t do that! It’s against the LAW!”

Ole calmly reached into his bag and took out another stick of dynamite and lit it. He tossed it to the Game Warden and asked, “Vell, are ya gonna to talk? Or, ya gonna fish?”



Ole and Sven die and wake up in hell. The next day the devil stops in to check on them and sees them dressed in parkas, mittens and bomber hats warming themselves around a fire. The devil asks them “What are you doing? Isn’t it hot enough for you?

Ole and Sven reply, “Vell ya know, ve’re from Nordern Minnesoda, the land of ice and snow and cold. Ve’re yust happy for da chance ta varm up a bit, don ‘t ya know.”

The devil decides that these two aren’t miserable enough and turns up the heat. The next morning he stops by again and there they are, still dressed in parkas, hats and mittens. The devil asks them again, “It’s awfully hot down here, can’t you two feel that?”

Again Ole and Sven reply, “Vell, like ve told you yesterday, ve’re from Nordern Minnesoda, the land of ice and snow and cold. Ve’re yust happy for da chance ta warm up a bit ya know.”

This gets the devil a bit steamed and he decides to show these two just who is in charge down here. He cranks up the heat as high as it can go. The rest of the people are screaming and miserable. He stops by to see if his two Minnesota tenants are the same, and is astonished to find them in light jackets and baseball caps, grilling walleye and drinking beer. The devil says “Everyone down here is in absolute misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves! Why?”

Ole and Sven reply, “Vell, ya know ve don’t get too many varm days up dere in International Falls, ve just got to have a fish fry vhen da vedder is dis nice.”

This absolutely incenses the devil, he can barely see straight. He finally comes up with a plan to set these two straight. These two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives, so he decides to turn off all the heat. The next morning, the temperature in hell is below zero, icicles are hanging off the ceilings, people are shivering so much that they don’t even have the strength to complain. The devil smiles and heads over to check on Ole &Sven. He arrives and finds the two back in their parkas, hats, and mittens. They are jumping up and down, cheering, and giving each other hi-fives. The devil is now quite dumbfounded, “I just don’t understand, I turn up the heat and you’re happy. Now I turn off the heat, it’s freezing and you’re still happy. Why?”

Ole and Sven stop their celebration and look at the devil with a surprised look and say “Vell, don’t ya know, hell froze over… dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bowl!”



It seems Ole had at last scraped up enough money to fly back to Norway to visit his relatives. He was excited and happy and when he boarded the airplane he took the first seat he came to, in first class. Very shortly another passenger came up to him and said, “Sir, you’ll have to move. That’s my seat. I have the ticket for it.”

“You don’t understand,” Ole answered. “I’m going back to Norway for the first time and I’m so excited and I need this front seat.”

No amount of talking could get Ole to move, so the passenger summoned the stewardess who said, “Sir, that is this gentleman’s seat and you’ll have to move.”

“You don’t understand,” Ole said again. “I’m going back to Norvay for da first time and I need dis seat so I can get off da airplane quickly to see my relatives.”

The stewardess tried and tried, but couldn’t get Ole to move. She finally called the captain, but he couldn’t do any good either until he finally leaned down and whispered something in Ole’s ear.

Ole then said, “Oh. All right.” And he quickly moved to his assigned seat in the rear of the airplane.

“What did you tell him?” the amazed stewardess and other passenger asked. “We couldn’t budge him.”

“Oh,” the captain replied. “I just told him this seat didn’t go to Norway.”



Ole told Lena one morning that he was going to chop down 20 trees in the woods with his ax and he would be done by suppertime. He worked and worked all day long and could only chop down one tree. He was so tired that when he came in for supper he went right to sleep without eating.

The next morning Ole gets up bright and early and tells Lena: “I am goin’ into town to pick me up vun of dose chain saws. Dat der ax yust don’t vurk too good.” So Ole heads off into town and stops at the hardware store to buy a chain saw.

He tells the hardware store owner what he wants and the owner says: “Ah, here’s the chain saw you want and it is guaranteed to cut down 20 trees in a day.”

Ole gets all excited and says: “dat’s yust vhat I need! I’ll buy it.” So Ole takes his new chainsaw home and gets up bright and early again the next day. He works all day and can still only cut down one more tree. He is beat red while he tells Lena: “Dis here chain is a piece of yunk! I am going to get my money back!!”

He storms back into town the next day to return the chain saw. He tells the hardware store owner: “Dis here chain saw you sold is defective. You told me I could cut down tventy trees and I could only cut down vun!!!”

The store owner looks puzzled and says: “oh?, let’s see if it works OK.” The store owner proceeds to start up the chain saw and it runs perfectly normal. BRRUMMMM…. Mmamamamama….. BRUMMMMM…. mmamamamama

Ole jumps back in horror and yells: “Vat da Lutefisk is dat NOISE!!”



Ole and Lena went to the hospital so Lena could give birth to their first baby. As Ole waited in the lobby, the doctor came out to inform him that he had some good news and some bad news. “The good news is that you have a normal baby boy. The bad news is that he is a Caesarian.”

Ole started crying: “Vell, I’m glad it is a healthy baby…but I vas kinda hoping it vould be a Norvegian.”



Sven was just pulling his boat up on shore when Ole wandered up with a puzzlement:

You must promise never ta look in it.” In all their 40 years of marriage Lena never looked. However on the afternoon of their 40th anniversary curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In the box were 3 empty beer cans and $1934.87 in cash. She closed the box and put it back under the bed.

Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why. That evening they were out for a special dinner. After dinner Lena could no longer contain her curiosity and she confessed, saying, “I am so sorry Ole. For all dese years I kept my promise and never looked inta da box under our bed. However today da temptation vas too much and I gave in. But now I need ta know vy do you keep da cans in da box?”

A little while later Lena asked, “Ole, vy do you have all dat money in da box?” Ole answered, “Oh, Whenever da box filled with empties, I cashed em in.”

Ole was driving in traffic when he was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down. The man walked up to the Ole’s car and asked, “Are you going to Oslo?”

“Sure,” answered Ole, “Do you need a lift?”

“Not for me. I’ll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I’ve got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be delivered to the Zoo. They’re a bit stressed already so I don’t want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me? I’ll give you fifty dollars for your trouble.”

“I’d be happy to,” said Ole.

So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of Ole’s car and carefully strapped into their seat belts. Off they went.

Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of Oslo when suddenly he was horrified. There was Ole walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of the crowd.

With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde.

“What are you doing here?” he demanded, “I gave you fifty dollars to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.”

The next day, Ole walks into the shop again and hands the pharmacist an almost empty deodorant stick. “This is just a normal deodorant”, the pharmacist tells Ole, “You use it under your arms”.

“No, it is not”, Ole answers, “it says so here: To apply, push up bottom”.
