Norwegian Jokes

I was married to a first generation Norwegian, and have always appreciated Norwegian jokes, mainly because she doesn't.

A HOODED ROBBER BURST INTO A WISCONSIN BANK AND FORCED THE TELLERS TO LOAD A SACK FULL OF CASH.
 
ON HIS WAY OUT THE DOOR, A BRAVE MINNESOTA CUSTOMER GRABBED THE HOOD AND PULLED IT OFF,
 
 REVEALING THE ROBBER'S FACE. THE ROBBER SHOT THE CUSTOMER WITHOUT A MOMENT HESITATION.
 
 HE THEN LOOKED AROUND THE BANK AND NOTICED ONE OF THE TELLERS LOOKING STRAIGHT AT HIM.
 
THE ROBBER INSTANTLY SHOT HIM ALSO. EVERYONE IN THE BANK, BY NOW VERY SCARED, LOOKED INTENTLY DOWN AT THE FLOOR IN SILENCE.
 
 THE ROBBER YELLED, "WELL, DID ANYONE ELSE SEE MY FACE?"
 
 THERE ARE A FEW MOMENTS OF UTTER SILENCE IN WHICH EVERYONE WAS PLAINLY TOO AFRAID TO SPEAK
 
THEN, ONE OLD NORWEGIAN NAMED OLE' FROM MINNESOTA TENTATIVELY RAISED HIS HAND AND SAID
"MY WIFE GOT A PRETTY GOOD LOOK AT YOU."

You have heard of Evil Knievel. Have you heard of Evil Larsen, the North Dakota farmer who tried to jump three combines with his John Deere?

Ghastly wreck, but most of the spectators think he would have made it if he had raised his plows.

The Stanwood, WA Sons of Norway recently lost six members and a backhoe in Puget Sound. One of their members died and requested burial at sea. It isn't known if the fire truck brakes were fixed.

We didn't get along, but her relatives were fine people who went out of their way to make me feel welcomed.

"Oh, you're the husband of the grand niece, ya sure".

When we moved to Seattle, we first rented a house in the Magnolia neighborhood, across the ship canal from Ballard. After her first visit to Ballard, she told me she had been in a neighborhood where, "Everyone looks like me".

Some more Scandinavian humor.
