 Ole, Sven and Lars had been going to the Sons of Norway hall
 meeting as long as there had  been a hall.  Every month they
 had an attendance drawing.  And every month, wouldn't ya know
 it, they didn't win a prize in the prize drawing, that is
 until a meeting when all three won in the same night.

 Sven was the first to get his name drawn.  He won two pounds
 of spaghetti sauce, 4 boxes of noodles and three pounds of
 Swedish meatballs.

 Ole had his name drawn next.  He got himself round-trip tickets
 to Duluth, a night's stay in the Dew Drop Inn and a pair of
 tickets to see the Inger Triplets Polka Ensemble.  Ole thought
 he had died and gone to heaven.

 Lars was the last to be drawn and he won a toilet brush.

 At the next monthly meeting they sat down together to check
 out how they had fared for the past month.

 Sven said "Uff-da I had dat pasghetti for tree days. It vas so
 good, Helga didn't have to buy any food for dem deare tree days."

 Ole said "  Lena was so happy vhen I brought home dem tickets.
 The trip up to Duluth vas nice, ve got to ride da Greyhound and
 ya know, dey got a built-in outhouse on dat dere bus.  And dose
 Inger Triplets - if I didn't know better, I would swear dae were

 Then Ole turned to Lars and asked him how his prize worked out.
 Lars looked at them both and said,

 "Vell, dat dere toilet brush is nice, but I tink I'll go back
 to using paper."

Subj:     Olaf Dies In A Fire (DU)
          From: The Bartenders Joke on 10/30/97

 Olaf died in a fire and his body was so badly burned that
 the morgue needed someone to I.D. the body.  So they
 called up his two friends, Swen and Lars, to come and try
 to I.D. the body.

 Swen went in and the mortician pulled back the sheet, and
 Swen said "Yaa, he's burnt pretty bad.  Roll him over."
 So the mortician rolled him over, and Swen looked at his
 ass and said  "No, dat ain't Olaf."

 The mortician didn't say anything, but thought that was
 kind of strange.  Then he brought in Lars to I.D. the
 body, and Lars looked at him and said "Yaa, he's burnt
 real bad; roll him over."

 The mortician rolled him over, and Lars looked down at
 his ass and said "No, dat ain't Olaf."

 The mortician said "How can you tell?"  Lars said, "Well,
 Olaf had two assholes."

 "What?  He had two assholes?!" said the mortician.

 "Yaa, everyone in town knew he had two assholes.  Every
 time the three of us went to town, everyone would say
 "Here comes Olaf with them two assholes!"

Subj:     Sven Looks For A Job (S700b)
          From: LABLaughsClean on 6/8/2010

 Sven was looking for a job and heard that their was an
 opening for a janitor at the local Lutheran church.

 He applied for the job and the interview went very well.
 "You have the job," he was told, "just sign this paper."

 Sven made a big "X" on the paper. "What's that?" he
 was asked.

 "That's my mark."

 "You're supposed to sign your name."

 "That's my mark," Sven replied, "I cannot read or write."

 "What?  We're sorry to work here you have to be able to
  sign your name."

 Well, Sven finally got himself a job as a mate on a
 tugboat, and eventually he became captain of his own

 He did well for himself and eventually had a fleet of
 ships of his own and became one of the wealthiest men
 in the community.

 One day the mayor decided to honor him for setting
 such a good example for other immigrants, and what
 they can accomplish with hard work and ingenuity.

 The mayor says, "Sven, we want to give you the key
 to the city!  Just sign this form."

 Sven made a big "X" on the paper.

 "What's that?" he was asked.

 "That's my mark."

 "Your mark?" The mayor asked.

 "Aih, I cannot read or write, so that's my mark."

 "You accomplished all of this not being able to
  read or write?" The mayor exclaimed. "Just think
  what you could have done if you could read and write!"

 "Yes," Sven said. "I could have been a church janitor."

Subj:     Ole And The Hooker (S636b)
          From: tom on 3/13/2009

 (See 'Guy Gets Help During Car Sex' in Cars2)

 Ole was walking home late at night, through the park,
 and sees a woman in the shadows.

 "Twenty dollars," she whispers.

 He's never been with a hooker before, so he figures,
 "what the hell, it's only twenty bucks.."

 So they hide in the bushes and are going at it for a
 minute when all of a sudden a light flashes on them.
 It's a police officer.

 "What's going on here people?" asks the officer.

 "I'm making luff to my wife," Ole answers indignantly.

 "Oh, I'm sorry" says the cop. "I didn't know."

 "Vell," Ole says, "I didn't either until you flashed
 that damn light in her face."

          From: flovilla on 3/23/2001

 A Swiss guy, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus stop
 where two Americans are waiting.  "Entschuldigung, koennen
 Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks.  The two Americans just stare
 at him.

 "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two
 continue to stare.

 "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?"
 Still nothing.  The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted.

 The first American turns to the second and says, "Y'know,
 maybe we should learn a foreign language."

 "Why?" says the other. "That guy knew four languages, and it
 didn't do him any good."

Subj:     Sven And Ole Apply For Unemployment (S190, S780)
          From: RFSlick on 9/23/00
      and From: virv on 11/27/2011

 Sven and Ole worked together were both laid off, so off they
 went to the unemployment office.  When asked his occupation,
 Sven looked the lady in the eye and said "Panty stitcher.  I
 sew the elastic onto cotton panties."

 The clerk looked up panty stitcher.  Finding it classed as
 unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.

 Then Ole goes in and sits down with the lady. She asked Ole
 his occupation. "Diesel fitter", he replied.

 Since diesel fitters was a skilled job the clerk gave the
 Ole $600 a week.

 When Sven found out he was furious.  He stormed back in to
 find out why his friend and co-worker, Ole, was collecting
 double his unemployment pay.  The clerk explained: "When I
 looked it up, panty-stitchers were unskilled laborers and
 diesel fitters were skilled laborers."

 Skill!..."What skill?" yelled Sven. "I sew the elastic on.
 He pulls on it and says,....."Yep, diesel fitter".

Subj:     The Difference Between A Norwegian And A Canoe (S573, S783)
          From: LABLaughsClean on 1/7/2008
      and From: virv on 1/10/2012
 Lars, the bartender, asked Ole, "Do ya know da difference
 between a Norwegian and a canoe?" "No, I don't," answered
 Ole. "A canoe will sometimes tip," explained Lars.

 Until 1965, driving was done on the left-hand side on roads
 in Sweden.  The conversion to right-hand was done on a week-
 day at 5pm.  All traffic stopped as people switched sides.
 This time and day were chosen to prevent accidents where
 drivers would have gotten up in the morning and been too
 sleepy to realize *this* was the day of the changeover.
