Congrats Norbster! But just think how much sooner you'd have made it if you'd risen to the bait I offered last weekend -- http://www.lutefiskloverslifeline.com
. I'm trying to find the serving location closest to ya but it's not that user friendly. (The website or the "fish"?). Maybe http://www.olsenfish.com
can send some...
. Just a note for posterity -- Norby's current avatar is a strong man pleading, "Lutefisk -- Just say no!"
This post would be 3 or 4 messages if I truly felt Twinkie could be caught. So without further adieu...

There was a young Swede from Dulut'
Who ate lutefisk, lefsa and groot.
The girls were awhirl
As they schottisched and twirled
With that handsome young Swedish galoot.
Norwegian cuisine can't be beat.
The gravlax with dill is a treat.
But the lutefisk in lye
Makes the strongest men cry.
So to down it, they chug aquavit.
