Ole, Lars and Sven had been going to the Sons of Norway Hall meetings as long as there had been a hall. And every month, wouldn’t ya know it, they never won a prize at the monthly drawing. That is, until the last meeting.

Sven was the first one of the three to have his name drawn. He won two pounds of spaghetti sauce, four boxes of noodles and three pounds of Swedish meatballs.

Ole had his name drawn next. He got himself round trip tickets to Duluth, MN., 2 nights’ stay at the Dew Drop Inn, and a pair of tickets to see the Inger triplets Polka Ensemble. Ole thought that he had died and gone to heaven.

Lars was the last one to have his name drawn. He won a toilet brush. At the next monthly meeting, they sat down together to check out how they had fared for the past month.

Sven said, “Uff da, I had dat pasghetti for tree days. It was so good, and Helga didn’t have to buy food for dem dere tree days.”

Ole said, “Lena was so happy vhen I brought home dem tickets. The trip up to Duloot was nice, and we got to ride da Greyhound, and you know, they got a built-in outhouse on dat dere bus. And the Inger triplets, if I didn’t know better, I would swear dey vere sisters.”

Then Ole turned to Lars, and asked him how his prize worked out. Lars looked at them both and said, “Dat dere toilet brush is nice, but I tink I’ll go back to using paper.”

A vacationing penguin is driving through Arizona when he notices that the oil-pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.

After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands, he makes a real mess trying to eat with his little flippers.

After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he’s found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says, “It looks like you blew a seal.”

“NO, NO,” the penguin replies, “it’s just ice cream.”

Dear Spike:

I have been unable to sleep since I forced my daughter to break off her engagement to you. Will you forgive and forget? I was much too sensitive about your Mohawk, tattoo, and pierced nose. I now realize motorcycles aren’t really that dangerous, and I really should not have reacted the way I did to the fact that you have never held a job. I am sure, too, that some other very nice people live under the bridge in the park.

Sure, my daughter is only 17 and wants to marry you instead of going to Harvard on a full ride scholarship. After all , you can’t learn everything about life from books.

I sometimes forget how backward I can be. I was wrong. I was a fool. I have now come to my senses and you have my full blessing to marry my daughter.

Sincerely, Your future father-in-law….

P.S. Congratulations on winning the Powerball lottery

A blonde walks into a pharmacy and asks the assistant for some rectum deodorant.  The pharmacist, a little bemused, explains to the woman they don’t sell rectum deodorant, and never have.  Unfazed, the blonde assures the pharmacist that she has been buying the stuff from this store on a regular basis and would like some more.

“I’m sorry”, says the pharmacist, “we don’t have any”

“But I always buy it here,” says the blonde

“Do you have the container that it came in?” asks the pharmacist.

“YES”, said the blonde, “I’ll go home and get it.”

She returns with the container and hands it to the pharmacist who looks at it and says to her, “This is just a normal stick of underarm deodorant”

Annoyed, the blonde snatches the container back and reads out loud from the container………

Do you know what happened this week back in 1850?

California became a state. The state had no electricity. The state had no money. Almost everyone spoke Spanish. There were gun fights in the middle of the streets.

So, it was just like California today…..only the women had real breasts.

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life. (Herbert Henry Asquith)


Sweet and cute little Lucy was in the garden filling in a hole when her neighbor peered over the fence.

Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was doing, he politely asked, “What are you up to there, Lucy?”

“My goldfish died,” replied Lucy tearfully, without looking up, “and I’ve just buried him.”

The neighbor smiled and asked with concern, “That’s an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn’t it?”

Lucy patted down the last heap of earth then replied, “That’s because he’s inside your darned cat!”

If you want to make GOD Laugh, tell him your future plans. (Woody Allen)
