Speaking of Norwegians … It seems Ole missed three days of work. When he finally got there, the boss asked him where in the world he had been.

“To a Norwegian wedding,” says Ole.

“For goodness’ sake,” the boss says. “It didn’t take three days, did it?”

“No,” said Ole, “but you see, I won second prize.”

“It must have been a good prize,” the boss said. “What did you get?”

Ole looked down and said, “Well, I won the bride for the next two days.”

“Wow!” said the boss. “What in the world was the first prize?”

Ole looked him straight in the eye and said, “Why, the first prize was five pounds of lutefisk!”
