- a repulsive gelatinous fishlike dish that tasted of soap and gave off an odor that would gag a goat, and
- reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm
- by all accounts the tastiest fish dish since pussy.
Last night was the Christmas function in the Physics Department at UiB. Thomas had persuaded me that Smalehove was the thing to have. And I willingly gave in. Thomas is a trustworthy guy. If he says that it is good, it is bound to be good. Well, this time I was perhaps not quite so lucky. Look, it is not an experience that I regret. I am happy to be able to say that I have eaten a sheep's head. I am filled with a sense of satisfaction in knowing that I have popped an entire sheep's eye (about the size and consistency of a squash ball) in my mouth and chewed. But as the whole thing got cool (which it did quite rapidly), it started to get less and less appetising. And by the time that I peeled back the lips and observed that this sheep was definitely not too big on oral hygiene, I am afraid to say that I had lost my commitment. Anyway, I pressed on valiantly so that all that remained on my plate was a bare skull. And next to that a very empty glass of Aquavit.
