Sven & Ole, a couple of Norwegians now living in
Minnesota, head for the fair in Duluth. The first thing to catch Sven's
eye is the big double Ferris wheel.
"Oh, Ole," he says, "vould you look at dat. I've always vanted to
go on von of dose big Ferris veels. Let's go ride on dat von."
Ole, not being near as adventurous as Sven says, "Oh,
I don't tink so. Dat looks kind of dangerous to me."
"Vell," says Sven, "you give me yust von good reason vhy you von't
go vit me on dat ride."
Ole couldn't come up with a good reason so up they went. Ole had to
admit after the ride that it was kind of fun.
After another 10 or 15 minutes they came to the roller coaster.
"Oh Ole," says Sven, "Vould you look at dat. Dat's von fine looking
roller coaster. I tink ve should go for a ride on dat."
"Oh, I don't tink so." says Ole. "Dat looks very dangerous to me."
"Vell," says Sven. "You give me yust von good reason vhy you von't
go vit me on dat roller coaster."
Again Ole couldn't come up with a good reason so they both went up
on the roller coaster. Ole had to admit after the ride that it wasn't so
bad.
After another 10 minutes or so, they came to the bungee jump.
"Oofdah!" exclaimed Sven. "Vill you yust look at dat, Ole. Dose
people yump off dat big tower vit nuttink but a rubber band tied to dare
ankles. Dat looks like so much fun. Come on, let's go do it."
"Oh, I don't tink so," says Ole. "Dat's much too dangerous. Dis is
vare I draw da line."
"Vell," says Sven, "you give me yust von good reason vhy you von't
go up on dat tower and yump off vit me."
"Ya, I give you a good reason," says Ole. "I came into dis vorld
because of a broken rubber and, by jimminy, I'm not going to leave it da
same vay."
