Speaking of Swedes

Sven, a furniture store owner from Minnesota looking to expand his furniture line is in Paris on a buying trip. That night he walks into a little bistro for a cocktail. Along comes a pretty gal and takes a seat next to him. Sven, not knowing how to speak French, draws a picture of a wine glass on a napkin and hands it to the young lady. She smiles, shaking her head yes and Sven motions for the bartender to give her a drink. A bit later, Sven draws a picture of a plate of food and hands it to her. She shakes her head yes and they order something to eat.

After dinner, Sven draws a picture of two people dancing and the young lady shakes her head yes, he pays the bill and out the door they go down the street to a French night club. Later as the band had finished their last song and were packing up their instruments, the young lady picks up a napkin and draws a picture of a 4 post bead. To this day Sven cannot figure out how she knew he was in the furniture business.
