A city man visiting a dairy farmer asked, Do you really like milking all those cows? I dont mind it, the farmer replied, Sometimes I even get a kick out of it.

Ole and Lena were having a serious talk. Ole, we both know how sick I am, Lena said, before long Ill be gone to my reward, theres just one thing I want you to promise me. I want you and my mother to ride in the same car in the funeral procession. After a bit, Ole said, well, okay, but you know it will ruin my whole day.
