Boiled Sheep Head

Here's some news from Iceland (via News of Iceland). Minister of Foreign Affairs Össur Skarphedinsson declared that the boiled sheep head he was served at a recent meeting of the Social Democratic Alliance was among "the best boiled sheep heads I have ever had. They stuck to my gum as proper heads should do."

His only minor criticism was that "the head could have been more fermented. We, from the West fjords, prefer our sheep heads so fermented that we can drink the eye out of the eye socket."

If I ever find myself in Iceland, I may pass on this particular delicacy. I just don't think I could bring myself to drink fermented eye of sheep out of the eye socket. More info about this Icelandic delicacy can be found at wikipedia.
