    In Sweden, this christmas, thousands of swedes will start eating a delicacy called:
    "surströmming" - Fermented Baltic Herring
    Its served from a bulging tin containing rotten fish - quite a delicacy - but stinks to high heaven and is loved by connesseurs (? spelling). Its usually served together with fresh cream and chopped onion mixed, boiled potatoes and of course a nice shot of vodka.

    Any more??

    Of course, you have to catch the little blighters first

    Isn't there some ghastly fruit called a durian (I think) which is also supposed to smell like rotting fish. I believe it is something of a delicacy in the far east.

    As a Scot I would like to get a pre-emptive strike in and say that haggis is not nasty.

    The legs on the left hand side of their body are shorter than on the right.

    That makes it easier for them to run along the side of hills.

    It does, however, make it predictable which direction they will run round the hill.
