Some cultural jokes as well...
Ole and Sven went on an expensive fishing trip and returned with only one fish.
"The way I figger it, dat fish cost us $400," said Sven.
"Vell," replied Ole, "At dat price it's a good ting we didn't catch any more."
Ole told Lena one morning that he was going to chop down 20 trees in the woods with his ax and he would be done by suppertime. He worked and worked all day long and could only chop down one tree. He was so tired that when he came in for supper he went right to sleep without eating.
The next morning Ole gets up bright and early and tells Lena: "I am goin' into town to pick me up vun of dose chain saws. Dat der ax yust don't vurk to good." So Ole heads off into town and stops at the hardware store to buy a chain saw.
He tells the hardware store owner what he wants and the owner says: "Ah, here's the chain saw you want and it is guaranteed to cut down 20 trees in a day."
Ole gets all excited and says: "Dat's yust vhat I need! I'll buy it."
So Ole takes his new chainsaw home and gets up bright and early again the next day. He works all day and can still only cut down one more tree. He is beat red while he tells Lena: "Dis here chain is a piece of yunk! I am going to get my money back!!"
He storms back into town the next day to return the chain saw. He tells the hardware store owner: "Dis here chain saw you sold is defective. You told me I could cut down tventy trees and I could only cut down vun!!!"
The store owner looks puzzled and says: "Oh?, let's see if it works OK." The store owner proceeds to start up the chain saw and it runs perfectly normal. BRRUMMMM....Mmamamamama.....BRUMMMMM..mmamamamama
Ole jumps back in horror and yells: "VHAT'S DAT NOISE????"
It is interesting that there is a similarity in the 2 accents when it comes to the TH being replaced with a D.
I guess the big difference is that the coonasses up here can't cook like the coonasses down there...
Unless you think Hinze Ketchup is spicey...
