First, you have to know the Midwest accent of all of us Norwegians, swedes, etc... Practice your "ya, you betcha!"
Sven and Ole
Asked his occupation, Ole said, "Panty Stitcher.. I sew da elastic onto da ladies cotton panties."
The unemployment clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it classified as unskilled labor, she gave Ole $300 a week in unemployment compensation.
Sven, when asked his occupation replied, "Diesel Fitter." The clerk looked up Diesel Fitter...and it was classified as a skilled job. So, the clerk gave Sven $600 a week in unemployment compensation.
When Ole found this out, he was furious! He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his benefits.
The clerk explained, "Panty Stitchers are unskilled labor and Diesel Fitters are skilled labor."
"Vat skill?" yelled Ole. "I sew da elastic on da panties. Sven puts dem over his head and says, "Yah, ------------- DIESEL FITTER".
