This year’s Ole and Lena Joke Night will take place Saturday, April 13, beginning at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30). The event will once again be at the Grand Event Center. Tickets are $10 in advance and can be purchased at the Northfield Historical Society. Due to high demand for tickets we are asking attendees to purchase their tickets in advance. Appetizers will be provided, and a cash bar will be open.
The gang of Ole, Lena and Tina are back for 90 minutes of fun filled “Norwegian” humor. The first half of the night will warm the crowd up for a some more extreme Ole and Lena jokes later in the evening. Audience participation will be encouraged throughout the evening, so come with your best Ole and Lena joke.
Here is a taste of what you’ll hear:
Ole and Sven are out deer hunting. Ole bags a buck. After they dress the deer and tag it, they grab it by its hind legs and start dragging it through the woods back to the car. A game warden happens on the pair and, after checking their tags and admiring the buck, tells them that they are dragging the deer out all wrong. By dragging it by the rear legs, the snow, leaves and dirt are getting caught by the animals fur, and the horns are getting all tangled in the brush. The warden suggests that they drag it by the front legs. They agree to try it and much to their surprise, it is much easier dragging the deer this way. After a half hour of this Sven turns to Ole and says, “Boy dat game warden was right, it sure is easier dragging de deer dis way, but ya know, we are getting further away from de car.”
The event is sponsored by the Northfield News and KYMN Radio.
