Three Norwegians went down to Mexico to celebrate their college graduations. They got drunk and woke up in jail, only to find that they were to be executed in the morning, though none of them could remember what they had done the night before.

The first Norwegian, Sven, is strapped in the electric chair and asked if he has any last words. He says, "I yust graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent."

They throw the switch and nothing happens.. They all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for Sven's forgiveness, and release him.

The second Norwegian, Lars, is likewise strapped in the electric chair and gives his last words, "I yust graduated from da Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent.." They throw the switch and, again, nothing happens. Again, they all immediately fall to their knees, beg his forgiveness, and release him.

The last Norwegian, Ole, is also strapped in the electric chair and he says, "Vell, den, I'm from Nort' Dakota State in Fargo and I yust graduated vit a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't plug this ting in."
