Friday Funnies - Ole and Sven's good idea

 

Calling all my Minnesotan Friends!  It's been awhile since I've heard an Ole and Sven story so I just had to pass this one on today for a little Minnesotan humor. These jokes have been around for as long as I can remember growing up in Minnesota.  I live in Arizona now but there's still a Minnesotan inside of me!

 

Enjoy!  I dare you not to laugh! Thanks to my brother for making me crack up today!

 

 

Ole and Sven are walking down a street in LaCrosse, WI. when they see a sign on a store that reads ..

Suits $5.00 each, shirts $2.00 each, and trousers $2.50 per pair

Just let me do da talkin cuz if dey hear yur accent, dey might tink we're ignrant n try to cheat us. No way, dey'll know we're from Minnesota ."

They go in and Ole says with his best "Wisconsin" accent, "I'll take 50 of those suits at $5.00 each, 100 of those shirts at $2.00 each, and 50 pairs of trousers at $2.50 each. I'll back up my pickup and ...."

The owner of the shop interrupts, "You're from Minnesota , ain't you?"

"Vell...yeah," says a surprised Ole, How'd ya know dat!?"

"Because this is a dry-cleaners......

That's actually pretty funny.  Those names sound familiar but I'm not sure why, but still makes for a good joke.  Have a good weekend Anna.

Tammie - glad it made you laugh! We all need more fun every day!

Bryan I think they were pretty popular a long time ago - maybe that's why you kind of remember it.  So stupid but funny.

Cindy - just simple fun - real simple LOL

Kathy - my pleasure!  I needed it too!

Donna - I know I know...they get a bad rap!  Minnesotans know these silly jokes.  I wonder how they got started?  Hmmmmmm
