Ole and Lena

Lena asks her boyfriend Ole to come over for dinner on Friday and meet her parents. This being a big event, Lena tells Ole that after dinner, she would like to go out and (vell ya know) for the first time.

Well Ole is ecstatic, but he has never (vell ya know) before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some protection. The pharmacist helps Ole out for about an hour. He teaches Ole all there is to know about protection and (vell ya know).

At the register the pharmacist asked how many he’d like to buy. Ole said he’d like to buy the family pack because he thought he’d be pretty busy, it being the time and all.

That night Ole shows up  at Lena’s house. Lena says,  “Ole, I’m so excited for you to meet my parents. Come on in.”

Ole goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where Lena’s parents are seated. Ole quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes and Ole is still praying. Three minutes pass and still no movement from Ole. Finally after five minutes of praying with his head down, Lena leans over and said, “I had no idea you were so religious.”

Ole turns and whispers back, “I had no idea your father was a pharmacist!!!”
