The Great Lake Hubert, Minnesota
Ole and Lena Jokes Page

We add a new Ole and Lena joke every week (usually by Monday) and
remove the old one, so return every week to catch them all.

If you've never seen Ole and Lena jokes before, you're in for a treat. These Scandinavian transplants have been the butt of jokes in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin for years and, in the words of Ole, "It ain't about ta stop now, don't ya know".

Ole was driving on the highway 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 Minneapolis?"

"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 Minneapolis 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 Ole.

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

"Ya, I know ya did," said Ole, "but yust as ve got der it looked like it vas goin ta rain, so ve decided to go see a movie instead."
