Ole, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. His fame grew, and, soon people from all over the country were coming to him in Minnesota for paintings and formal portraits.
One day while Ole was mowing the lawn, a beautiful young woman pulled up to his house in a stretch limo. She asked Ole if he would paint her in the nude. This was the first time anyone had made this request.
The beautiful lady said money was no object; she was willing to pay him $50,000. Not wanting to get into trouble with his wife Lena, Ole asked the lady to wait while he went in the house and conferred with, his missus.
In a few minutes he returned and said to the lady, "Ya, shoor, you betcha. I'll paint ya in da nude , but I'll haff ta leave my socks on so I'll have a place to wipe my brushes."
