Quick Joke

One of my best email friends that I used to work with lives up in Minneapolis. She always sends me their Norwegian jokes, mostly starring Ole and Lena. This one is wonderful:

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 in 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, Lars, is strapped in and gives his last words, "I yust graduated from da 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 he says, "Vell, den, I'm from Nort' Dakota State in Fargo and I yust graduated vit a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't plug this ting in."
