Which is fermented - the herring or the expert?

Inquiring bloggeristas want to know.

"Hey Sven, how many did you have anyway?"

"I lost count, but believe me - I'm totally fermented."

'Fish sauce' is made from fermented anchovies. An anchovy strikes fear into any herring even if the fish hasn't bathed in six months.

Most guys, when fermented, are experts at raising the roof.

And if your herring ever gets stuck, the best thing to use to free it is a herring aid.

“We had three cans. We ate two and my husband took the third and put it up under the roof because we had eaten enough. Then he forgot about it.”

Insert hard of herring joke here.

An old man was wondering if his wife had a herring problem. So one night, he stood behind her while she was sitting in her chair. He spoke softly to her, "Honey, can you hear me?" There was no response.
He moved a little closer and said again, "Honey, can you hear me?" Still, there was no response. Finally, he moved right behind her and said, "Honey, can you hear me?"
She replied, "For the third time, yes!"

" Some fermented herring might come spurting out when we open it..."

This is the part during the horror movie when the audience yells " Don't do it ! "

France is on high alert.

This sounds like a story Rose Nylund would tell on Golden Girls.

Honey, the surströmming almost ready.

Isn't there a scene in Alien where a can of fermented herring comes out of William Hurt's chest?


What? I can't herring you.

We he finally got to use his College Degree in something he was trained for. Now to wait another 23 years for the next one.
