"If you put enough melted butter on it,...

... it tastes like melted butter."

Lutefisk: Wisconsin's Toxic Tradition. But allegedly less toxic than it once was. Sorta like absinthe, but without the green fairy.

As 16-year-old Cody Millikin said of Norwegian cod cooked in lye:
It's like Jell-O. It jiggles. It's not like what fish is supposed to be like. But, whatever."
Fortunately for this noble tradition, "the Wisconsin Legislature voted to exempt lutefisk from toxic-substance disclosure laws."

No mention of the turpentine. Oh. Wait...Never mind: that's a Door County Fish Boil.

More on those Mewling Saudi Sellout Islamists

More on the guys who just aren't Islamist enough for the guys shooting at us:
(CNN) -- A Saudi court sentenced a female journalist Saturday to 60 lashes for her work on a controversial Arabic-language TV show that aired an episode in which a man bragged about his sex life, two sources told CNN.

The court in Jeddah also imposed a two-year travel ban on Rosanna Al-Yami...The ban prevents her from traveling outside Saudi Arabia....

On one episode, a Saudi man, Mazen Abdul Jawad, bragged about sex and got into trouble with Saudi authorities for his boasts. Abdul Jawad was put on trial and sentenced to five years in prison and 1,000 lashes.
Well, it was pretty stupid to brag about sex on Saudi TV. Maybe he should have been sentenced for criminal stupidity.
While the charges include involvement in preparing the program, she was not involved in setting up the episode in which Abdul Jawad appeared, the lawyer said.
Obviously an effete Western detail, of no relevance to even a Saudi court.

Mohammed Jamjoom has more at CNN.
