Because you asked for it!

Ikea Meatballs: overrated. I've had better. Plus, did the alleged animals contained in said meatballs sign a consent form prior to being slaughtered? Has the bolt gun recieved sufficient counselling after discharging it's duties? These things are important.

Here's my bit!  :o

Surströmming

Surströmming (pronounced [ˈsʉ̂ːˌʂʈrœmːɪŋ]; Swedish for ''sour herring'') is a lightly-salted fermented Baltic Sea herring traditional to Swedish cuisine since at least the 16th century.

The Baltic herring, known as strömming in Swedish, is smaller than the Atlantic herring, found in the North Sea. Traditionally, the definition of strömming is "herring fished in the brackish waters of the Baltic north of the Kalmar Strait". The herring used for surströmming are caught just prior to spawning in April and May.

During the production of surströmming, just enough salt is used to prevent the raw herring from rotting while allowing it to ferment. A fermentation process of at least six months gives the fish its characteristic strong smell and somewhat acidic taste. A newly opened can of surströmming has one of the most putrid food smells in the world, even stronger than similarly fermented fish dishes such as the Korean hongeohoe or Japanese kusaya.

That Surströmming actually sounds sort of reminiscent of the condiment of choice of ancient Roman times known as "Garum" or "Liquimen" (see: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garum), which was similar to the fermented fish or oyster sauces often used in Asian cuisines. It was kinda like Ancient Roman ketchup in its ubiquitousness. Our household actually goes through a lot of that savory Asian stuff. A couple of dashes on the soles of an annoying person's shoes, and they'll soon freak out as every cat in the neighborhood commences following them around in herds.

Ranging even further out towards that far peg of the Foulness Meter has got to be that related Icelandic specialty "Hákarl", or fermented shark. That's gotta be some kinda legacy Viking dare: so nasty that the late chef Anthony Bourdain once derided it as "the single worst, most disgusting and terrible tasting thing", and that from a fellow who once snacked on a grilled warthog anus. A chunklet of THAT spew in one's loafers, and kitty goes all "nerve gassy"...

So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends and I'm a contender for 'Village Idiot')

IKEA Meatballs are made from horse meat actually, however they claim that they sell the horseballs only outside of Sweden which is why IKEA is a highly respected company in Sweden as ripping off customers is regarded as the highest intellectual achievement in that country.

That and pulling foreign politicians through dirt, but you dare to criticise one of theirs? The local gestapo will come and poke holes in your tire because in Sweden everything is good.

The best and sometimes only way to pop up a bubble is to blow it up first properly.

https://www.tellerreport.com/news/2021-03-09-%0A---here--scania-forged-its-trucks---signs-were-changed-on-a-chicken-farm-%0A--.H1XD3tvHXu.html

So these f@#$s hier a chicken farm in India to falsity their truck models because they are incapable of relabeling their trucks within of their own company, blackmail the farm owners into silence to "go to the police" with the threat of guns. Then sell the trucks to a government owned mine that doesn't even use them, than accuse the "Germans" of doing it....

Do you think they would register my Royal Enfield in Sweden?

What reply do you get when you enter a swedish bookstore pick a book and ask that chicken supposedly a bookstore owner to wrap it for you as a present?

You can do it yourself.  ::)
