Adapt names as needed for your area, but don't mess with Texas.
Sven and Ole, who are both from Northern Minnesota, traveled down
to Texas for a vacation. While walking along a busy downtown street in
Dallas, they see a sign in a store window which reads, "Suits $5.00 each,
Shirts $2.00 each, and 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 yust ignorant Norwegians, 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 into the store, 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
The owner of the shop interrupts, "Ya'll are a coupla Norwegians
from Minnesota, aren't you?"
"Vell . . yah," says a surprised Ole . "How'd you know dat?"
The owner replies, "Cause this here's a dry-cleaners."
