Ole noticed a Mylar balloon had caught in a tree in his front yard, and he borrowed a ladder from Sven to get it down. Sven held the ladder and asked, "So what ya gonna do when ya get it loose, den?" Ole said, "Just let it go. It's fulla helium, so it'll fly away." Sven said, "Don't do dat, Ole - if dem things land in the ocean, dey can kill whales. Just put it in your house. Maybe up in de attic." Ole said, "Are you nuts? Ya know what Lena'd do ta me if she came home one day an' dere was a dead whale in de attic?"
