The meaning of UFF DA

Adapted from a postcard from Bergquist Scandinavian Imports


Trying to dance the polka to rock and roll music

Losing your wad of gum in the chicken yard

Having Swedish meat balls at a lutefisk supper

Spending two hours cleaning up my room and my mom says 'Uff Da'

Walking downtown and then wondering what you wanted

Arriving late at a lutefisk supper and getting served minced ham instead

Looking in the mirror and discovering you're not getting better, just older

Trying to pour two buckets of manure into one bucket

Having a mouse crawl up your leg when you're on a hayload

Eating hot soup when you've got a runny nose

Getting out of bed in the morning with a backache

Getting swished in the face with a cow's wet tail

Waking yourself up in church with your own snoring

Forgetting your mother-in-law's first name

When two steady girl friends find out about each other

Noticing non-Norwegians at a church dinner using lefse for a napkin

Eating a delicious sandwich and then discovering the spread is cat food

Sneezing so hard your false teeth end up in the bread plate

NOT being Lutheran
