Have a safe trip home


This was a way to get rid of unwanted guests in Iceland back in the day.

Feed them poisonous shark that hadn't been fermented quite long enough, then send them stumbling in the direction of the nearest lava.

There is a saying:
Guests are like fish, after 3 days they start to smell bad.

Iceland's version of the English "cold shoulder"

Were if you were a guest, who overstayed their welcome, were served a cold shoulder cut of meat.

Iceland's version kept you warm through.
