Ole lived across da river from Clarence who he didn't like at all. Dey all da time vas yelling across da river at each odder. Ole vould yell to Clarence, "If I had a vay to cross dis river, I'd come over dere an beat you up good, yeah sure ya betcha by golly!" Dis vent on for years. Finally the state built a bridge across da river right dere by deir houses. Ole's wife, Lena, says, "Now is your chance, Ole, vhy don't you go over dere and beat up dat Clarence like you said you vould?" Ole says, "OK, by yimminy I tink I vill do yust dat." Ole started for da bridge but he sees a sign on da bridge an he stops to read it, den he turns around and comes back home. Lena asked, "Vhy did you come back?" Ole said, "Lena, I tink I change my mind 'bout beatin' up dat Clarence. You know, dey put a sign on da bridge dat says "Clarence is 13 ft. 6 in." You know, he don't look near dat big vhen I yell at him from across da river."
