Quotes of the day(s), Lutefisk edition

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Times reported recently on a special dinner held by the local Sons of Norway featuring lutefisk. Lutefisk, a recipe from before the days of refrigeration, is a traditonal Norwegian dish. Codfish is dried until it is the consistency of carboard. Then it is soaked in a lye and water solution, and then boiled in water so the lye is removed.

Diners were asked for comments:

"It looks like snot," Arnie Fast said. "But it doesn't taste as good" added his wife Maria.
