Part of menu from a restaurant in Iceland
Icelanders are strange. In many ways, and not least in the things that they will eat. Here is a partial list of things that they eat:
Happy marriage (a pie with oatmeal crust0
Love balls (a desert)
Kleina (twisted pastry)
Sheep’s head soup
Black death ( schnapps made from fermented potatoes and caraway seeds.
Sour ram’s testicles
Added to that, horses are popular in Iceland. So is horsemeat. Many people cringe at the thought of horsemeat, but the fact is that 90% of that horsemeat is eaten by tourists!
Of course what seems strange to us is natural to others.

I must assume that the ram is now singing tenor in the Norman Luboff choir.
I will never feel weird again because of the foods I like to eat. The Icelanders are a courageous people.
