Old Folk Jokes
Ole and Sven were going hunting and Ole says, "just in case the hunting is slow, I think I'll take my new saw and cut some wood."
When he got home, Lena asks "how was the hunting?" Ole tells her that the hunting was disappointing but so was the new saw. she said "you should take it back and find out why it didn't work so well." So Ole heads to the Husqvarna dealer and hefts the saw up on the counter and tells the clerk about his disappointment. the clerk says, "let's take it out back and cut some wood." once out back, the clerk pulls the rip cord and fires up the engine and Ole asks, "What's that noise?"
