Lol! My roommate just offered me some yoghurt with pieces of fruit in it, made by his wife. When he poured it in my beaker we already saw that there was something weird about it. It also smelt funny. When we tasted it we spat it out as fast as we could. That stuff was so bad! I still have the aftertaste in my mouth.

You should try some Surströmming then. I hear you have to eat it outdoors because it smells so much.

If that’s what I think it is, my friend’s parents had bought a pack of it from Sweden or something, and immediately as they opened it all the flies in the area came buzzing around it Tongue

Talking about flies: my brother brought me some Golden Syrup from Aberdeen last week. It has this brilliant logo of a dead lion with flies buzzing around it:

Nothing makes you lust for syrup like the image of a dead, rotting lion.

Seriously.

Unless you make your egg sandwiches in a different way than I do mine, I don’t see the stinky part of it.  The after-effects can clear a room, sure, but the egg sandwich itself has little to no smell at all. 

Similar but even worse, I love pickled eggs which smell strongly of vinegar before you eat them and have after-effects that will cause one’s roommates to banish one outdoors for the next 24 hours.

Around the lion are the words: “out of the strong came forth sweetness” so you may be right. I’ve never really tasted flies.

But what do bees have to do with dead lions?

Seemingly it’s a bible quote

New International Version (©1984)
Some time later, when he went back to marry her, he turned aside to look at the lion’s carcass. In it was a swarm of bees and some honey,

New Living Translation (©2007)
Later, when he returned to Timnah for the wedding, he turned off the path to look at the carcass of the lion. And he found that a swarm of bees had made some honey in the carcass.

Yes, I looked it up on the manufacturer’s website. You’re right, that’s the story behind it.

Well the egg sandwiches in question weren’t mine but they did make the office stink of egg! The after effects are, of course, much worse!

That’s true. It’s fermented herring and is indeed the stinkiest food I’ve ever experienced.

Like regular herring isn’t stinky enough as it is?  I’ve got to wonder what brave soul hidden in the mists of the past opened a container of herring that had fermented and said “I don’t care what it smells like, I’m gonna eat it anyway!” and lived to tell the tale.  No doubt his buddies hailed him as “Da Man” due to his ability to ignore his natural self-preservation instincts and eat fish that had obviously gone bad, but I’ve also got to wonder how long he lived if his policy of eating food regardless of how bad it smelled extended to other dishes.
