Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Two Norwegians walk into a pet shop

Two Norwegians walk into a pet shop in Dingle.  They head to the bird section and Sven says to Hans, "Dat's dem."

The owner comes over and asks if he can help them.

"Yeah, we’ll take four of dem dere little budgies in dat cage up dere," says Sven.

The owner puts the budgies in a paper bag.  Hans and Sven pay for the birds leave the shop and get into Sven's pick-up and drive to the top of the Coner Pass.  Sven looks down at the 1000 foot drop and says, "Dis looks like a grand place." He takes two birds out of the bag, puts them on his shoulders and jumps off the cliff. Hans watches as Sven falls all the way to the bottom, killing himself stone dead.

Looking down at the remains of his best pal, Hans shakes his head and says, “Dis budgie jumping is too dangerous for me."

— But WAIT!  There's MORE! —-


Moments later Ole arrives up at Coner Pass and he too has been to the pet shop.  He walks up to the edge of the cliff carrying another bag in one hand and a shotgun in the other.  "Hi Hans, Watch dis,” Ole says.

He takes the parrot from the bag and throws himself over the edge of the cliff.  Hans watches as half way down, Ole takes the gun and shoots the parrot.  Ole continues to plummet down until he hits the bottom and he's dead.

Hans shakes his head and says, "And I'm never trying dat parrotshooting either."

— But WAIT!  There's STILL more! —

Hans is just getting over the shock of losing two friends when Lars appears.  He's also been to the pet shop and is carrying a paper bag out of which he pulls a chicken. Lars grasps the chicken by the legs, holds it over his head and hurls himself from the cliff and disappears down, down, down until he hits the rocks and he's dead too.

Once more Hans shakes his head- "First der was Sven with his budgie jumping, den Ole parrotshootin, and now Lars is hengliding."
