Overview

If you come from a Scandinavian family, Uff Da is a familiar expression... especially if you have Norwegian ancestry. Uff Da defies precise definition because it has denoted, through ancient custom, a feeling of consternation. Anything from disappointment, sudden pain, surprised reactions to unexpected conditions,... all may be taken care of with the simple expression "Uff Da." Uff Da is more than an expression... it is also a philosophy that one doesn't have to swear, talk dirty, or blow a gasket. Uff Da gives the signal that things are out of control for the moment, but if you will just utter the expression, somehow you will surmount the problem at hand. So, we have adopted the term Uff Da for this book of jokes.. because the many boo boos and dumb miscues that afflict all of us from time to time can be handled better by not going all to pieces. Just say "Uff Da" and somehow you can muddle through. Norwegians especially have been the target of many terrible but awfully funny jokes, many of which make Norwegians look quite simple. But don't let a Scandinavian's acceptance of these jokes fool you... they simply don't take them personally because they are confident that they are nobody's fool. But perhaps if you THINK they are a bit dumb, they often take advantage and get the best of the deal. So, have a few laughs on us Scandinavians and we'll laugh right along with you.
