terrible joke

I was reading an article on a site about Scandinavian stereotypes (I thought it was pretty interesting) and came across this joke...

A Swede, a Dane and a Norwegian are shipwrecked on the proverbial desert island. A genie appears out of thin air, informing them that they can each have a wish granted. The Swede immediately says, "I want to go home to my large and comfortable bungalow with the Volvo, video and slick IKEA furniture." So he vanishes. The Dane then says, "I want to go back to my cozy little flat in Copenhagen, to sit in my soft sofa, feet on the table, next to my sexy girlfriend and with a sixpack of lagers." Off he flies. The Norwegian, after giving the problem a bit of thought, then tells the genie, "Cor, I suddenly feel so terribly lonely here, so I guess I wish for my two friends to come back."

I've heard something similar with "a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead" but the addition of Ikea and lagers makes this one slightly more amusing.

However, I recommend this site, if you ever get bored enough. The link is provided above.
