Ole (Norwegian) and Sven (Swedish) went on a fishing trip to Canada and come back with only three fish.

A Swede and a Dane were sitting on a park bench smoking a cigarette.

It started raining and then the Swede pulled out a condom and covered his cigarette so he could continue smoking.

Now the Dane was wondering what it was because his cigarette was drenched and he couldn’t smoke it anymore. He asked the Swede what it was and where he could get some.

“They’re called condoms, and you can get them in that pharmacy over there.”

The Dane went off to the pharmacy and asked for some condoms.

The pharmacist asked him what size he would like. The Dane thought for a while and then replied: “Ones that fit on a Camel.”

A Norwegian went to a museum. The tour guide was explaining: “This sword is over 2500 years old.” The Norwegian paused for a second to think about it and then asked: “How is that possible? We are only in the year 2022.”

The Danish man had a problem. His wife was coming home on the train but he could not remember if she was coming at 8:40 or 4:80

  1. A swede ran into his friend, why the long face? I have skunks under my house and can’t get rid of them. The Swede said that his Norwegian neighbor had the same problem and made a big tub of lutefisk and threw it under the house and the skunks took off. Maybe I’ll try that said his friend. A week later the Swede met his friend again, why the even longer face, didn’t you get rid of the skunks? Yah Sure, I made a huge pot of lutefisk and off they went. What’s the problem then? Now I can’t get the danged Norwegians from under the house!
