On Saturday, two fire trucks, two police cars and an emergency gas leak team all rushed towards the Stockholm neighbourhood Södermalm, having been alerted by concerned neighbours who smelled gas in the stairwell, but the unpleasant smell turned out to come from something less dangerous.

“The person who called the police had spoken to several neighbours in the house who also thought it smelled like gas, and were worried,” said Stockholm fire fighter ßjörn Hörnsten to the national radio station SR.

On the scene, however, emergency services were quickly able to classify the unpleasant smell as harmless, since it didn’t come from anything more dramatic than a traditional Swedish autumn party.

“I guess somebody didn’t know what surströmming smells like,” said Sven-Erik Olsson from the police’s command centre to the TT news agency.

Surströmming, or fermented herring, is a traditional Swedish delicacy, but its odour is notoriously foul. In the beginning of fall, it’s not uncommon for Swedes to gather some friends and spend an evening together enjoying the smelly fish at what is called a surströmmingsskiva (fermented herring party).

But on this occasion, the smell spread from the apartment out to the stairwell, scaring the neighbours.

You have no idea how unbelievably foul that smell is! It's absolutely disgusting and activates your gag reflex instantly. aaah2.gif

It's a Swedish tradition, but these past couple of years it's been available in stores over here as well. Would you buy anything canned that's bulging like that? damned.gif

I would not eat that shït for under a quarter of a million bucks. Herring is the nastiest, most foul fish people consume. I refuse to touch that bait, let alone eat it after it's gone bad. wtf2.gif damned.gif

Another "funny" thing about herring is that we got an EU exception to consume it because of the high levels of dioxins, but not allowed to export it. damned.gif

Taking a substandard food item and rot it for consumption is just a bad idea. I bet whoever started this tradition probably came up with a bad batch of preserved herring and was one helluva marketer. damned.gif
