Joke of the Week
There were three men who are about to be executed in the morning though none of them can remember what they did the night before.
The first one, Sven, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if he has any last words. He says, "I yust graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent."
They throw the switch and nothing happens. They immediately fall to the floor on their knees and beg for Sven's forgiveness and release him.
The second man, Lars, is strapped in and is given a chance to speak his last words.
"I yust graduated from da Concordia College in Moorhead and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent."
They throw the switch again and nothing happens. Again, they all immediately to the floor and beg lars for forgiveness then release him.
The last one, Ole, is strapped in and he says," Vell den, I'm from Nort Dakota State in Fargo and I yust graduated vit a degree in electrical engineering. You von't electrocute nobody if you don't plug this ting in!"
