    For all those Sven and Ole's out there!

    Sven, "So Ole, i see you got a sign up that says, Boat for Sale. But you don't have a boat, all you got is an old John Deer tractor and your combine."

    Ole, "Yup, and there boat for sale."
    ~~~~
    Sven and ole went out duck hunting and they worked at it for a couple hours. Finally Sven says, "I wonder why we aren't getting any ducks Ole?"

    Ole, "I don't know, I wonder if we are throwing the dog high enough?"
    ~~~~~~

    You might be interested to know alot of cool things started in MN. It was the MN people who started the "Wave"

    Abowt- The bear was abowt two feet from me. The whole thing started abowt nothing.

    Tech talk;
    Chips- munchies for the tv, or cow-patties
    download- get fire wood
    floppy disc- what you get from getting too much firewood.
    byte- what mosquits do
    bit- what mosquits did
    screensave- duct tape for the torn screen door
    server- a waitress
    cursor-someone who swears

    Reminds me of POPULAR Bar in Ocean City Maryland, called M.R.Ducks. They also have a retail store that sells T-shirts, towels, sweatshirts, hats, etc, with their very famous LOGOS. The origin of the name goes like this:

    M.R. Ducks
    M.R. Not
    O.S.A.R.
    C.M. Wangs
    L.I.B.

    If at first you don't get it, read it again with an eastern shore accent, and a drawl. And check out my profile:)

    Ya sure, ya know, those were real good jokes.

    You betcha.

    You might be from Minnesota if:

    You instinctively walk like a penguin for three months out of the year.
    Someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there.
    Your Dad's sun tan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead.
    You have ever apologized to a telemarketer.

    Gotta go heat up the hot dish...

    Vell, yu know dey got a lota snow in Minnesota.

    In addition to the usual problems caused by same, Ole was getting tired of having to move his car. Almost every night he'd hear on station WCCO, "Please move your car to the north (or the south) side of the street so the snow plows can get through.

    So one night as he was pulling on his overshoes, Lena said, "Oh, Ole, yust fur once vhy don't yu yust leave it in da garage?"




    And here's an Ole and Lena joke that was in the Readers' Digest a year or two ago.

    "Vell, Lena, Ve are married at last." Ole puts his hand on Lena's knee in a friendly fashion.

    "And look. Dar's Minny-hapolis yust ahead."

    Lena, giggling: "Oh, Ole, yu can go farther den dat."

    So he drove to Duluth.

    pull da wool over dat Ken's eyes, by golly. He is a true gopher.

    Yust as funny as a good Ole and Lena Yokebook (I have several, most by Red Stagland) is "How to Talk Minnesotan"
    by Howard Mohr.

    (Note: Dis book is not outta print. Dey still got mohr a dem.)

    My sister talks almost as Norsky as Frances MacDormand in "Fargo". (I couldn't believe it when I read that movie was a comedy. I tink da writer vas tree sheets to da vind, maybe.)

    Anyway I have a copy of the book, and then I bought another copy for 25 cents at a thrift shop. Whenever I offer it to somebody they say, "Oh, isn't that great! Yeah, I read it a couple times."

    Mohr gives the definitive exposition of So...then construction:

    "The So...then construction is used to frame many Minnesota questions. In the situation where a person not from around here would ask:

    "Who are you?"

    The Minnesotan would ask: So who are you then?

    Outsiders: Is the whole life policy a better investment?

    Minnesotan: So you're saying if a guy took that whole life policy it wouldn't be too bad a deal then?"

    Although the book does not say that the author actually grew up in Minnesota, it does say he writes for A Prairie Home Companion. I 'spose that's 'bout as good.

    Vell, den, I'll be seein' ya. Ya, you betcha.
