Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
Olie and Sven are retired best friends, who take out Olie’s John Boat and go fishing every day. One day while on the lake Sven sees a beautiful bottle float by. He picks it up, and inside is a genie. She tells him “please, kind sir, if you release me from this bottle I will grant you one wish.” Sven uncorks the bottle and releases her, and she says, “thank you, thank you—you may now have your wish. Sven looks around at the lake and says “I wish the water in this lake was beer.” With a poof, the water in the lake turns to beer and Sven is a happy man. Olie turns to Sven and says, “Way to go, Sven. Now we have to pee in the boat.”
