I've been flipping through this incredibly boring mystery novel set in Norway by the title of The Body in the Fjord by Katherine Hall Page, and in my incredibly cynical moments, I'm like, "How bl***y boring! No wonder their suicide rate is so high!"

Anyway, there was only one bit I found interesting and that was this anecdote about a sign in a Norweigian restaurant which went like this:

Consumption of alcohol is forbidden unless accompanied by fish. All food is considered fish, except sausages. If sausages are ordered, may God forbid, sausages can be called fish.

Ces Scandinaves sont un peu ├ętrange, non?
