I'm just impressed the Icelandic people came up with such a long process to remove poison.

I like how Norway's face at the end isn't disgusted or surprised, just sad.

Norway: "So this is what Rock Bottom looks like ..."

Funny thing is, that's a very Icelandic attitude. :D "I was going to eat that shark, so I WILL eat that damn shark - pee or no pee!" Pure Icelandic stubbornness. ^_^

On the topic of strange foods, lutefisk. Putting the fear of cod in you.

One wonders just how many people died as they slowly figured out each step.
"1 month burial - everyone died"
"2 month burial - everyone died"
"3 month burial - everyone died, but it took longer. Let's try 4 months!"
"4 month burial - everyone got really sick but only old Ragnar died. Hm, let's try pissing on it and then hanging it to dry!"

You should see surströmming. It's banned on airlines because a can of it burst en route from Sweden to the U.S. and they made an emergency landing in Canada because it smelled so bad they thought it was a biochemical attack. Usually you have to open it outside and underwater. One time a can leaked all over my cousin's shirt and they had to burn it.

As a followup, I'd like to see how Norway came up with the recipe for lutefisk.
Seriously, there are a lot of dishes around the world where you might wonder who first thought of eating THAT.

Love the off-hand comment about demons in the bathtub. Only Iceland would baby-sit (demon-sit?) them because they can't swim and might drown. Subject for another strip ? Demons in a bath-tub? --Maybe they're good for clearing Icelandic drains. . . .
I'm missing demon-cat, who reminds me of my own evil kitty who shreds my furniture then always manages to be curled up looking angelic just where I want to sit down.

Is there a Demon-cat christmas coming up ?

My theory about a lot of local "specialities" around the world?
People were starving and desperate ...
