Isn't it about the time of year to be eating surströmming if you're in Sweden? It seems like something the entire US WOC team ought to be exposed to.

... and the Canadian team...

...and probably the Kiwis.

We definitely weren't trying to damage the Canadian's preparations for tomorrow's relay.

Why is fuzzy Gustav Bergman telling Emily to eat this stuff?

Gustav's hair doesn't look as good as it used to though.

I also have video of members of Team USA and Team NZ trying surstrsurströmming. I will release it if three people donate to the team. :-)

Shut up and take my money!

(Be sure to select one of the US teams rather than the OUSA unrestricted fund.)

I'm unaware of any donations.

Google Translate wouldn't translate the word for me, but I'm thinking it's something along the lines of Iceland's hakarl. Yes?

"rotten fish"

Edit: ...or not quite...

Ah, herring instead of shark.

Although not explosive, I'm told that it's advisable to open the can outdoors, because the aromatic liquid has a propensity to squirt out and you'd rather not have it splattered all over your dining room. (I've never experienced it, we just had sill in my family.)

The way to do it is to open the can under water.
You don´t have to be in the water yourself as long as the can is ;-)
