    Ole, a furniture dealer from Minnesota decided to expand the line of
    furniture in his store, so he went to Paris to see what he could
    find.

    After arriving in Paris, Ole visited several manufacturers and selected a
    line he thought would sell back home. To celebrate the acquisition, Ole decided to have a glass of wine at a small bistro.

    As he enjoyed his wine, Ole noticed the place was quite crowded. The other chair at his table was the only vacant seat in the house.

    Before long, a beautiful Parisian girl came to Ole's table and asked
    something in French. Ole didn't understand so he motioned to the vacant chair inviting her to sit.

    Ole tried English, but she only spoke French. So after several minutes of failed communications, Ole drew a picture of a wine glass on a napkin and showed it to her. She nodded, so he ordered her a glass of wine.

    After a while, he took another napkin, and drew a picture of food on a plate. She nodded in agreement so they left the bistro and found a quiet cafe with a group playing romantic music.

    They ordered dinner.....after which he took another napkin and drew a
    picture of a couple dancing. She nodded again, and they danced.

    They danced until the cafe closed and the band was packing up. Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a four-poster bed.

    To this day, Ole has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture
    business.

    senior smoke and all:

    It's been several years ago but a long series of jokes were posted on ts.c by various contributors. Like the Ole joke above, they were often directed at the descendents of settlers in U.S. regions from identifiable countries of origin. Ole and Lena jokes were common as were Beaudreau and Thibodeaux stories.

    Others were rather pointed references to state rivalries. For example, did you know Oklahoma once relocated a large number of its' ignoramuses to Texas? It was reported to have raised the average IQ of both states.

    A few poked fun at real or perceived religious foibles: Do you know why married Southern Baptist couples don't make love standing up? They're concerned someone will see them and think they're dancing.

    The jokes and stories were neither hateful nor offensive. However, many had (at least) the potential to rile the politically correct or those with overly thin skin. To them I apologize.

    For everyone else, care to share some of those old gems??

    PS to Smoke: I spent week before last in Reno. I enjoyed a raw 12 oz. prime rib at a five star steakhouse in your honor : )
