One day two Minnesotans, Ole and Sven, found themselves adrift in a lifeboat on Lake Superior. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Ole stumbled across an old lamp.
He rubbed the lamp vigorously and suddenly, a genie came forth. This Genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three.
Without thinking, or consulting Sven, Ole immediately blurted out, 'turn the entire lake into Schmidt beer'.
The genie clapped his hands with a deafening sound, and immediately Lake Superior turned into Schmidt beer and just as quickly the genie vanished.
Now only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their new circumstances.
Sven looked disgustedly at Ole whose wish had been granted, and after a long tension-filled moment, Sven said, "Nice going Ole!
Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."
