Ole and Lena

(North Dakota keeps up a tradition of telling jokes about an old Swedish couple named Ole and Lena.)


Ole and Lena were ice fishing.
-> Ole and Lena pa kapti plu piski dia fora in glaci.


Ole said, "Lena, I forgot my cigarettes. Would you mind going to the store and getting some?"
-> Ole dice; "Lena, mi pa no-memo plu cigareta. Qe tu ne este turba de kine a boteka tende merka mu?"


Lena said, "I don't have any money."
-> Lena dice; "Mi habe zero valuta."


Ole said, "Put it on our tab."
-> Ole dice; "Signatura u-ci a na debi."


So Lena walked across the frozen river to the store.
-> Po-co Lena ambula trans glaci fluvi a boteka.


After Lena returned she said, "Ole, you told me never to run up a tab. Why did you do it?"
-> Po Lena re-kine, fe dice; "Ole, tu pa dice a mi; zero-kron signatura uno-ra a na debi. Tu pa akti u-ci kausa qo?"


"I had enough money in my pocket. But I thought it would not be wise to give you the money this time, because I didn't know how thick the ice was that way."
-> "Mi pa habe sufici valuta in marsu. Anti-co mi pa puta; kron ne es sofi, dona a tu u valuta, kausa mi ne pa ski; qo paki es u glaci topo la."
