Ole and Sven had really 'packed on the pounds' by over-eating during Christmas and the New Year's Holidays, so their doctor put them on the same diet.
'I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least 5 pounds.
When the Norwegians returned, they shocked their doctor by having lost nearly 25 POUNDS each.
'Why, that's positively amazing!' the doctor said. 'Did you follow my instructions?'
Then Ole and Sven nodded and said 'We vant to tell you though, we taut we was gonna drop dead dat 3rd day.'
'From hunger, you mean?'
'No, yust from all dat skippin'!
