It seems that many centuries ago, many Norwegians went to Ireland to
the bitterness of the Norwegian winters.
Ireland was having a famine at the time, and food was scarce. The Norwegians
were eating almost all of the fish caught in the area, leaving the Irish
nothing but potatoes.
St Patrick, taking matters into his own hands, like most Irishmen do,
decided the Norwegians had to go. Secretly, he organized the
(Irish Republican Army to Rid Ireland of Norwegians.)
Irish members sabatoged all the ice houses in hope the fish in Norwegian
warehouses would spoil, forcing the Norwegians to a colder climate where
fish would keep.
The fish spoiled alright , but the Norwegians as everyone knows, thrive on
Faced with failure, the Irishmen sneaked into Norwegian fish storage
in the dead of night and sprinkled the rotten fish with lye, hoping to
the norwegian intruders. But as everyone knows this is how lutefisk was
introduced to the Norwegians and they thrived on th lye-soaked, smelly fish.
Matters became even worse for the Irishmen, when the Norwegians started
taking over the Irish potatoe crop and making lefse.
Poor St Patrick was at his wits end, and finally on March 17th when he
stand it no longer, he told all the Norwegians to go to hell. It worked!!
All the Norwegians left Ireland, and went to North and South Dakota, where
are thriving on their smelly fish and lefse!!!!
