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".

Both Ole and Sven wanted some money, so they went to the bank for a loan. Sven went in first. "I want $10,000!"

"What do you do for a living?" asked the manager.

"I'm a pilot!" said Sven.

"Well, that is a good profession!" said the manager, so he gave him the money.

Then Ole went in and said, "I want $10,000 too!"

"Well, what do you do for a living?" asked the manager.

"I'm a lumberjack," he replied.

"Well, I can't give a lumberjack that kind of money," said the manager.

"Vell, what's the deal with that? If I don't cut the vood, Sven can't pile it."
