Pretty Good Jokes

From the Joke Collection
Lena and Ole go on vacation to Burbank, where they manage to get teickets to the Johnny Carson Show. Johnny spots them in the audience and decides to call them up on stage and have some fun with them.
As Lena comes up on stage, Johnny looks up at her and says, "My goodness, Lena, but you're a big woman."
"Yeah," says Lena, "Six foot six, forty stone. I'm a big woman, yeah."
"You're big enough to play with the Green Bay Packers. Would you ever consider doing that?" Johnny aske.
"Oh, no," Lena said, "I only play with Ole's peh-ker."

—Steve Schroeder, Seattle, Washington
