    Pickled herring's OK. Perhaps one had to grow up eating lutefisk to like it? I sure didn't, and don't, and never will.

    "Every Advent we entered the purgatory of lutefisk, a repulsive gelatinous fishlike dish that tasted of soap and gave off an odor that would gag a goat. We did this in honor of Norwegian ancestors, much as if survivors of a famine might celebrate their deliverance by feasting on elm bark. I always felt the cold creeps as Advent approached, knowing that this dread delicacy would be put before me and I'd be told, "Just have a little." Eating a little was like vomiting a little, just as bad as a lot."

    An acquired taste, indeed. But then, I like quinine-flavored drinks as well.
