Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.

SPUNK-ØT SWEDISH CHICKEN ROLL, P-P-P, AND QUESTION MARKS.

Years ago one of the commenters here remarked that to him, anyone speaking Dutch sounded as close to the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show as to make no difference. And he opined that Swedish itself sounded like an actual language; Dutch didn't.

Naturally I expressed vociferous dissent.
Swedish sounds like gibberish.
No wonder they're nuts.

Now, let us segue sideways.

A brief instructional video.


A SOLID BLOCK OF SPHAGNUM!


[Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qv_3jdEt9mw&feature=youtu.be.]


At 1:55, the speaker switches to Swedish, for the benefit of monolingual Vikings. For nearly two minutes he maintains a high degree of fluency in that relative of Magyar ere returning to a civilized tongue at 3:50.
For pipe smokers, it is a very useful video.
Peterson's Perfect Plug.

[Swedes, and other Scandinavians, are fond of American luncheon meat. This is well known. It explains why the natives of other countries fear them, and wish they would stay home instead of going on Holiday to Europe.]


I do not know if any chickens were harmed in the making of this video. Mijnheer Jan Kusters, judging by his tastes and erudition, is probably a Brabander or Limburger. A fine Virginia-Perique tobacco bears his nickname, in tribute to the pater noster of the Dutch and Belgian pipe crowd.

I first saw mention of Jan Kusters on Arno's blog (Dutchpipesmoker at Wordpress dot Com), on which a fellow Brabander writes interestingly and in-depth about an enjoyable past-time, in English -- because there are marginally more people who understand that tongue than Dutch.
Or Swedish.


GREAT BOOBIES, HONEY BUN!

Peterson's Perfect Plug takes a little getting used to. It's presented as a block, which needs to be sliced with that hugely expensive chef's knife that was purchased years ago and is very rarely used (I prefer the twelve dollar serrated blade I bought in 1984 at the knife store in North Beach for most purposes).

3P can be described as rich and creamy (not entirely sure what other people mean by that), being a full and broad smoke with a rather good development of flavour. Smoke it slow, and use a medium bowl rather than a big Castello or Danish freehand. It has a bit of a nicotine whompus, due to the air-cured element.
Rational non-smokers will probably like the fragrance.
Californian non-smokers may start weeping.
They're perverts; screw them.
Lightly cased.

Urf, urf, urf. Rubbidup, rubbidup. Opla.
Words to live by.

    Great post :) I shared the link with the Dutch pipe-smokers forum. And yes, Janneman comes from Limburg.

    Heh. I noticed that I had more visitors from the Netherlands than usual.
    Thank you.
