Charlie's Caviar - A Very Swedish Taste

A reporter at the New York Times once described this Swedish delicacy like this: "Made from cod roe, it is squeezed out of what looks like a bright blue toothpaste tube and should not be confused with fine Russian caviar. Swedes love it, but for the rest of us, it can be hard to swallow, unless a salty and fishy pinkish goo appeals to you."

I use it on eggs, instead of salt, To be honest I use it on every kind of bread made by man just because it's so delicious. It is true, Swedes love it - whether we are 5 or 95 years old. We only seem to share this acquired taste with Norwegians and Finns, while the rest of the world frown or gag after tasting it. 

However, you really should try it, especially with eggs. If you don't live in Sweden, Norway or Finland, you can get it at any IKEA near you, or in specialized stores.

The following videos shows you how Kalles Kaviar was received in Los Angeles, Costa Rica and lastly by Swedish tourists in New York (where they complain about only getting two servings)

Ramzan Kadyrov - The Dictator of Chechnya

Ramzan Kadyrov is the dictator of the republic of Chechnya, which is a federal subject republic of Russia.

As you can see from the picture below, Ramzan really, really, really - and I mean really - likes Vladimir "Little Father" Putin, the president of the Russian Federation.
Ramzan's cuddling up to Vlad has very good reasons. Firstly, it was Putin who put Ramzan in power after the previous dictator of Chechnya was (who was little Ramzan's father) killed. Putin also funnels over a whole lot of money (some say 80% of Chechnya's budget) to keep Ramzan in power with the main objective to keep the Islamic separatists in check and the country calm.

Despite his cuddling up with Putin, Ramzan really, really, really - and I mean really - doesn't like homosexuals. In fact he emphatically denies there are any Chechen homosexuals, and if there are he recently said that he would bugger them for badmouthing him and his wonderful republic with spreading rumors about state orchestrated persecution, torture and murder.

Putin, and his regime, just smile and deny any atrocities.

The upcoming event on Saturday July 22, 2017, at 1PM SLT, is sponsored by Second Pride.

Be there or be square and bring your wallets!
