Two "100% Norwegian Lutheran farm girls" read a hilarious account of what it means to grow up worrying about Catholics, not dancing, and memorizing the Lutheran Catechism. Humorists in their late 50s, they alternate narrating the abridged production, sometimes accenting the segments by simultaneously saying "This is most certainly true" over the sound of organ or piano music. Sounding like two friends giving a talk at a Tupperware party, they're funny in a self-deprecating way that belies their sharp insights on Lutheran culture. The presentation is so wry and underplayed that you can't help but laugh at the way they talk, even when they're not saying anything particularly funny.
