Ole And Sven Go To Texas
Ole & Sven are on vacation in Texas and walk by a store window with the sign: Suits $5.00 each, Shirts $2.00 each, Trousers $2.50 a pair."
Ole says to his pal, "Sven, look at dat! Ve could buy a whole bunch of dese clothes, take 'em back to Minnesota, sell 'em to all our friends, and make a fortune!"
Ole continues, "Now ven ve go in dere, don't you say a vurd, okay? Yust let me do the talkin' 'cause if dey hear your accent, they might tink ve're ignorant Swedes, and dey von't vanna sell dem clothes to us. Now, I'll talk like I'm a Texan, so dey von't know."
Ole and Sven go in and Ole says with his best fake Texas accent. "Howdy, y'all. Ah'll take 50 of them there suits at five dollahs each, 100 of them there shirts at two dollahs each, and 50 pairs of them there trousers at two-fifty each. So, Ah'll just back up mah pickup and . . . "
The owner of the shop interrupts, "Ya'll are a coupla Swedes from Minnesota, ain't you?"
"Vell . . . yah," says a surprised Ole. "How'd you know dat?"
The owner replies, "Cause this here's a dry-cleaners."
