The Great Lake Hubert, Minnesota
Ole and Lena Jokes Page

We add a new Ole and Lena joke every week (usually by Monday) and
remove the old one, so return every week to catch them all.

If you've never seen Ole and Lena jokes before, you're in for a treat. These Scandinavian transplants have been the butt of jokes in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin for years and, in the words of Ole, "It ain't about ta stop now, don't ya know".


Ole and Lena, getting up in years, are in the living room watching tv.

Ole: I think I'll go get a little ice cream, would you like one?

Lena: Yes. Could you get me a scoop of vanilla.

Ole: I can do that. (And heads for the kitchen)

Lena: Don't you think you'd better write that down?

Ole: No, I can remember, a scoop of vanilla. (Heads for kitchen again)

Lena: Ole, while you're at it, how about putting a little chocolate syrup on mine.

Ole: I can do that.

Lena: Don't you think you'd better write that down?

Ole: No, I can remember, vanilla ice cream with a little chocolate syrup. (Gets closer to the kitchen)

Lena: You know, Ole, some crushed peanuts would also be nice.

Ole: I can do that.

Lena: Don't you think you'd better write that down?

Ole: No, I can remember, a scoop of vanilla, chocolate syrup, and crushed peanuts.(Ole goes into the kitchen)

Half an hour later, Lena's getting worried and is about to go looking for him, when Ole comes out of the kitchen carrying two plates of fried eggs and bacon.

Lena: Ole! I knew you should have written it down. I wanted my eggs scrambled!
