The rest of the article is equally hilarious. I heard about this stuff on a TV show about weird foods. I think they leave the guts in. Wonder what happens to the heads?

To be fair, I think I read that the Swedes open the can underwater, wash the herring, and then eat it with a good helping of crackers, salad etc to try to mask the worst effects. But it is irredeemably foul.

Under water? That´s for sissies, Robert. Straight out of the can is the common way to go about it. You put the fish in soft bread and fold it up together with potatoes and perhaps some onion, and then you gobble it down with snaps.

Surströmming is more common the further north you travel in Sweden. If you go west, you end up in Norway and you can have "rakörret", which is trout that has been dug down in the ground to ferment. If you prefer rotten whalemeat, it´s Iceland you should head for.

And David Frost used to say that in hell, the Brits do the cooking...
