Well, that was Callos of me...

After enjoying Menudo so much the other night, I thought it was time to crack open a can of Callos for dinner.

All I can say is, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I don't know how calorically-laden this stuff is, but I suspect it's sheer arterial dynamite - so I only had half of a very small can for dinner. I'm saving the rest for tomorrow.

By the silken breast of Mogg's mother... I am one happy wolf tonight.

too much pork for me, but I'd give it a go given the chance.

Your banquet blog is a great read! Have you tried Aquavit? I got a sample pack when I was in Sweden. Well, not quite true. Co-workers got given 3 sample packs and they lived in the work freezer for 6 months before they admitted defeat and gave them to me.

Tragically (at least for Aquevit's sake) I'm teetotal. Otherwise I would have enjoyed the lutefisk even more... Don't know what I'll do when I get to Iceland and can finally sample hákarl... apparently the rules say you have to consume it with mass quantities of brennivin!

Maybe they mean you must be really drunk to try hákarl.

I think you've nailed it...

I actually dropped by to post exactly this...

Strangely enough I think you need to be supremely drunk to be able to consume Aquavit too. Whoever thought herring flavoured liquour was a good idea clearly spent far too long snowed in....

If you've ever seen Bob Newhart's sketch on tobacco, you can see how people's minds might be led to conjure up strange practices...

I mean, who was the first person that ever looked at a cow and said, "I think I'll drink whatever comes out when I squeeze those..."

hah!
reminds me of The Goon Show.

Eccles:
[Sings] ...metal tril.. oh! [stops singing] Hello, shipmate of mine. Where are you a'goin' off?

Seagoon:
Nowhere. I think it's safer to stay in the ship until we reach Calais.

Eccles:
Yeah... Hey! You goin' to Calliss?

Seagoon:
Yes.

Eccles:
What a coincidence - that's where the ship's goin. Ain't you lucky! Everything's goin to be fine, fine, fine...

Seagoon:
Here! Have a gorilla.

Eccles:
Oh! Thanks.

Grams:
[Gorilla roaring]

Eccles:
Oww! Oww! Ooh! Oww! Hey! These gorillas are strong. Here! Have one of my monkeys - they're milder.

Seagoon:
And so for the rest of the voyage we sat quietly smoking our monkeys. At Calais I left the idiot singer. By sliding down the ship's rope (in French), I avoided detection and made for the Louvre. Late that night I checked into a French hotel. Next morning, I sat in my room eating my breakfast, when suddenly through the window a fork on the end of a long pole appeared. It tried to spear my kipper.

(etc etc)
