| perhaps carrying concealed lutefisk should carry criminal penalties in
| Switzerland...

  Only a small number of people have concealed carry licenses for lutefisk
  in Norway.  Most counties were "shall issue" before a recent accident
  where a taxi driver driver was assaulted with frozen meatloaf, obviously
  because the assailant was a law-abiding citizen who did not carry a
  pocket knife, but now they are mostly "may issue".  The police are in
  general quite sympathetic to people who apply for a license to carry
  lutefisk for personal or home protection, however.  And I bet most of you
  furriners thought lutefisk was foodstuff, but it is way more lethal than
  you can imagine in the wrong hands!

  But seriously, lutefisk just has a seriously bad reputation.  It can be
  really good if prepared right.

  Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's
  Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate.
  Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
