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 cha know".



Three Norwegians go down to Mexico to celebrate college graduation.  They
get drunk and wake up in jail only to find that they are to be executed
in the morning though none of them can remember what they did the night
before.

The first one, Sven, is strapped into the electric chair and is asked if he
has any last words. He says, 'I yust graduated from St. Olaf College in
Northfield, Minnesota and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene
on the behalf of the innocent.' They throw the switch and nothing happens.

They all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for Sven's
forgiveness and release him.

The second Norwegian, Lars, is strapped in and gives his last words, 'I yust
graduated from the Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota and I believe
in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent.' They
throw the switch and, again, nothing happens.

Again, they all immediately fall to their knees; beg for his
forgiveness and release him.

The last one, Ole, is strapped in and says, 'Vell, I'm from the University
of Nort' Dakota in Grand Forks and yust graduated with a degree in
Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya ain't gonna
electrocute nobody if you don't plug this t'ing in.
