Hakarl? Anyone?

Its an icelandic delicatess. The greenlandic shark, whose body is filled with urinic acid (stinkin pee) gets buried in the ground, rotts for six to twelf weaks, gets cut in stripes and dryed for another long period and finally eaten.

A friend of mine once invited me for an icelandic party where this... things... where served and believe me, the smell is the second worst that ever reached my nostrils in my whole life. The most bad smell was a load of dead chickens rotting in a forrest in mid summer. The hakarl is close second... very close.
