Fishy Business

Fishy Business

For some reason, people on the internet seem to get offended by the notion of microwaving fish at work. Of course at my job, no one seems to mind at all. They even sell fish sandwiches in the refrigerated vending machine. People nuke ’em all the time, and no one’s ever complained. I wonder what other things the internet complains about where no one in real life would actually give two shits or less.

In case you didn’t get the joke, Surströmming is a canned fermented herring from Sweden, infamous for it’s putrid aroma. My favorite critique of this stuff is by Wolfgang Fassbender who said, “The biggest challenge when eating surströmming is to vomit only after the first bite, as opposed to before.”

There are various videos of people blowing chunks after opening a can of this stuff. Watching things like this always cracks me up for some reason.
