We Ate Lutefisk And Didn’t Die

So this is lutefisk, and it sucks. It’s fish that been preserved in lye and broken down into a strange jellylike texture, which is exactly as appeitizing as it sounds. We bought it because we were in Minnesota and it seemed like a very Minnesota thing to do even though virtually NO Minnesotans eat this shit.

But we did. We ate it, and reader, we lived to tell the tale. Now you might find that lutecrous (HUH?! HUH?!!!!!), but we really did consume and digest it. A friend who stopped by the house later that night nearly barfed (good content!), but our bellies remained intact. Note my pit stains in this vid! Tell me you aren’t hungry.
