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*

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her 80s, and had never been married. She was always admired for her kindness and sweetness to all. One afternoon the pastor came over to visit her, and she showed him to a quiant sitting room. She invited him to sit while she prepared the tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young pastor noticed a fancy bowl sitting on top. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water, out of all things, floated a condom! When she returned with the tea and scones, they began to chat. The preacher, tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.

*Miss Beatrice, I wonder if you would tell me about this* he said pointing at the bowl.
*Oh yes,* she replied. *Isn*t it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little packet on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wetand that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know that I haven*t had the flu all winter!*

The pastor fainted.

John is having a bad day. He tried to button his shirt, and the button fell off. He picked up his briefcase and the handle fell off. He tried to open the door, and the doorknob fell off. Now he's scared to pee.
