Ole and Sven were drinking buddies who worked as aircraft mechanics in Minneapolis. One day the airport was fogged over, and Ole and Sven were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do.

Ole said *I vish ve had something ta drink.*
Sven says *Me too. Y'know, I hear ya can drink dat jet fuel and get a buzz. Ya vanna try it?* So they pour themselves a couple glasses of the high octane hooch and got completely smashed. Next morning Ole woke up and is surprised at how good he feels. In fact he feels GREAT. No hangover and no bad side effects. Nothing!

The phone rang and it was Sven who asked *How iss you feelin dis mornin?*
Ole says, *I feel great, how bout you?*
Sven says, *I feel great too! Ya don*t have no hangover?*
Ole says, *No. Dat jet fule iss great stuff --no hangover, nothing. Ve oughta do dis more often.*
Sven agreed. *Yeah, vell, but dere*s yust vun ting.*
Ole asked, *Vat*s dat?*
Sven guestion, *Haff you farted yet?*
Ole stopped to think, *No*
*Vell, DON*T, cause I'm in Iowa.*

A woman walks into a pharmacy and asks the pharmacist for some arsenic.
He asks, *What for?*
*I want to kill my husband,* she says.
He replies, *I*m sorry, but I can't do that.*
She then reaches into her handbag and pulls out a photo of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife and hands it to him.
*Oh, you didn*t tell me you had a prescription.*
Ole stopped to think, *No*
*Vell, DON*T, cause I'm in Iowa.*
