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".

Government surveyors came to Ole's farm in the fall and asked if they could do some surveying. Ole agreed and Lena even served them a nice meal at noon time.

The next spring the two surveyors stopped by and told Ole, "Because you were so kind to us, we wanted to give you this bad news in person instead of by letter."

Ole replied, "Vhat's da bad news?

The surveyors said, "Well, after our work we discovered your farm is not in Minnesota, but is actually in South Dakota!"

Ole looked at the surveyors and said," Dat's da best news I have heard in a long time. Vhy I yust told Lena dis morning dat I don't tink I can take another vinter in Minnesota."
