    Apparently the Dane Bloodbeard over on Chaos Dwarfs Online has tasted one of the top contenders for the smelliest food in the world, surströmming (straight translation: "sour herring").

    He claims to have survived the event.

    It was so disgusting! We ended up burning the remains in a fire. Space Marine purging style.

    Surströmming, which is basically fermented rotten fish in a can prone to bulging, is an infamous Swedish dish, with such a strong odour that birds, those stress-sensitive avians, are rumoured to risk death upon smelling a strong dose of it. It is considered folly to open a can of it indoors.

    Considered by some to be nothing short of a chemical weapon, by others a traditional delicatess best eaten with complimentary stuff on a sandwich, it was recently tested by Americans.

    Curious? Got guts enough to try it? Then see for yourself!
