But Those Legs Go All The Way Up

Sven and Ole buy a mule. But when they get it home, they can’t get it into the barn. It just won’t go.

Sven says, “I know just the problem. He won’t fit through the door. His ears are too long.”

Ole sees that Sven is right, thinks a bit, and then says, “I know what we can do. We should raise the barn by a foot, so he’ll fit.”

Sven asks, “Wouldn’t it be easier to dig a ditch for him to walk in?”
Ole says, “Sven, don’t be such a dummy! It’s his ears that are too long, not his legs!”

I Bet She Can Still Make Glasses Shiver

Sven’s down at the feed store and runs across Ole.

Sven says, "Ole, good to see you! How’ve you been?”


“And what about your wife, I haven’t seen her in awhile. How’s she doing, Ole?”


Sven says, “I heard you bought her a piano, didn’t you? That must be real fine. How’d she like it?”

Ole answers, “Fine. But I sold the piano and bought a clarinet.”

“A clarinet? Why would you give her a clarinet instead of a piano?”

Ole glares at Sven a bit, then says, “Because with a clarinet, she can’t sing!”
