They wanted to see the Scandinavian boys visiting America for once and get a taste of American culture, Peanut Butter being of special interest. We do have Peanut Butter up here in the North now like most American stuff, but for the sake of the comic lets say this was the first time they encountered it. :D

I have no idea how many people will get the last part, but it's a joke on the old American show "Mister Ed" from the 60's about a horse that could talk. When asked how they got the horse to move it's lips when "talking" the people behind the show claimed it was done by putting peanut butter on it's gums (they later told they had trained it to do so, but didn't want to disappoint the children who watched the show).

I honestly have no idea why I know about that show in the first place. :XD:

If you go to Minnesota and Wisconsin, it's so Nordic --- all the settlers there came from Sweden and Norway... They make lutefisk, they are Lutheran in a bleak, noirish kind of way; the Norwegians paint rosmailing on everything that doesn't move. . . . The King of Norway visited Minnesota one time and said it was more Swedish that back home. They even have a dalahast factory there. . . .

I know this is a way old comic to be commenting on but I keep coming back to it months apart... That phrase, "guests have a right to test their host"... It's nothing I've ever heard in America, but strangely I can't argue with it...

Because it's a totally kickass show that they still show on me t.v. (old show channel). It's right up there with green acres (doubt I spelled that right), bewitched (the modern movie version was hella awesome), and I dream of Jeannie. I only remember the last one from when I was a kid.

I love peanut butter. It's one of the few Americans stereotypes I can relate to.
