Don't you hate it when someone serves you an improperly boiled sheep's head? Össur Skarphéðinsson, Iceland's Minister of Foreign Affairs, does. Fortunately, the boiled sheep's head served at a recent party function was almost perfect:
This is among the best boiled sheep heads I have ever had. They stuck to my gum as proper heads should do. This is the beginning of an enormous health effort that I plan to follow once the [upcoming general] election is over" says Mr. Skarphéðinsson when asked about the picture that his coworker, Bjork Vilhelmsdottir, put on her facebook page.
I said 'almost':
"This was a superb meal, but the head could have been more fermented. We, from the West fjords, prefer our sheep heads so fermented that we can drink the eye out of the eye socket"
Don't we all?
