    Since we seem to be trading peculiar culinary habits, Launch, glögg is a beverage drunk around Christmas.
    It is brown, alcoholic, rather sweet, and is served lightly warmed with almonds and raisins floating in a quite tiny cup. It is best consumed with other Christmas dainties, such as gingerbread cookies and saffron buns!

    These delicacies are not, however, appropriate weapons of war. (Try me again towards the end of January, and I might give you a different answer! ;) ) No, we shall force you to submission with horrible fermented fish!!!

    You are going to be begging us for mercy, and agree to all our demands, including the handing over of JediWarrior! :p

    Oooooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You mean you guys don't? You must be at a nutritional disadvantage to us, then. :)

    Of course we eat the fermented fish. What else would we do with it!? And it's called surströmming (="fermented Baltic herring", according to my dictionary) BTW. ;)

    Yummy! :D

    i can't really say I agree with that lynx. the smell is rather.. hideous..
    but nonetheless canadians must surely be more sensitive to it! give them all you've got!

    Ain't that the glorious truth!

    Fermented fish is a dish many owners of apartment blocks in Swedish cities actually prohibit the eating of.

    Owners of apartment blocks that actually allow the tenants to ingest this peculiar delicacy, have rigorous rules on how and when you can eat it, and above all: what you must do with the trash afterwards!

    Beware! Surrender while you still have a chance!!! :p

    Not too late to join in I hope...I've got loads of...fermented fish, you call it? Well, lutfisk, anyway...

    *lifts her heavy burden up in the air*

    So, where to we throw it?

    How I have missed this thread. :(

    So what eventually happened? Was Canadia conquered by valiant Swedes?
