Minnesota Scandinavian humor

Heard on Garrison Keillors Prairie Home Companion radio show:

Ole was on his death bed. His pastor had been summoned and, from all appearances, the end was imminent. As he lay there gasping for breath, a waft of an odor drifted into the room and Ole sniffed.

He realized that he was smelling his favorite of all things, Lenas chocolate marshmallow brownies.

With great effort, the old may got out of bed and, with a huge effort, made his way down the stairs and into the kitchen, following the delicious smell of the brownies. He spied them in the open window, cooling. He staggered over and took one, savoring the aroma, and took a big bite out of it.

At that moment, Lena walked into the kitchen and said, Ole! You should be ashamed of yourself! I baked those for after the funeral!
