Norway has a sheep to person ration of 0.007.

New Zealand has a sheep to person ratio of 9.0.

Norwegians are particularly fond of smalahove.  My colleagues regard it as a Christmas delicacy.*

The only drawback is price.  Sheep heads here are a rare commodity.

This presents a new business opportunity:

  • Step one: Acquire NZ sheep heads
  • Step two: Import to Norway
  • Step three: Make millions


*I can’t help but have this nagging fear it will be served to us for our company Christmas dinner.

    Norwegians are weird. Prepare yourself for the fact that the put the tinsel on their christmas trees vertically!


    The sheep head doesn’t look too bad. Quite tasty I imagine. Mock turtle soup can be made with a boiled calves head. I’ve made it before but you can’t buy heads here (easily) so I think I used neck chops or oxtails instead.
