Some Swedish Fish.
The licorice kind or surströmming?

I've been around Scandinavian fish foods before. After my first encounter with lutefisk let's just say I'm....extremely wary.
For centuries Swedish fish-'delicatessen' have been feared WAY more than than their military abilities (even Hitler knew to stay away from Sweden!).

Today we, luckily, have Wikipedia to warn us:

According to a Japanese study, a newly opened can of surströmming has one of the most putrid food smells in the world, even more so than similarly fermented fish dishes such as the Korean Hongeohoe or Japanese Kusaya.
Basically: Do not open a can of Surströmming without your Level A hazmat-suit AND do not, ever, bring a can of it into another country -it'll be regarded as a biological/chemical attack!

Pain is inevitable.
Suffering is optional.
