AND STADEMS SAGA, PRESENT:
The Extraterresials also acclimated rapidly, adapting the Scandinavian customs and ways that suited the environment admirably, even to relishing Lutefisk (codfish given a long lye bath to soften it to the consistency of jellyfish, then fried in butter).
Another delicacy they came to favor is Lefse, a partly fried, potato-based cake, extremely flat, that resembles a taco but was originally used by the Vikings to patch holes in their ships' sails on long raiding expeditions called "voyages."
Extremely sticky when in contact with seawater, they made instant patches that held well until more traditional cloth-patches could be sewn in place (cloth taken usually from Irish monks' robes). When exactly the Vikings began eating the eating of Lefse, it is not yet determined, but on long voyages they sometimes ran completely out of stored food and so took to eating their lefse-patched sails just to fill their stomachs. Someone eventually decided that the potato-cake patches were more tasty than the cloth sails, and a new delicacy was discovered for enhancing the Smorgasbord."
Tour the five Occupied Scandinavian countries now inhabited by the more or less happy, Lefse and Lutefisk-addicted Aliens, and see if they aren't pretty much the same as they were during the heydey of the mostly blond-haired humans.
IT DID THE TRICK, BECAUSE LATER ROLLO'S DESCENDANT, DUKE WILLIAM, WENT AND GOBBLED UP ENGLAND INSTEAD OF FRANCE.
BY THIS TIME, HOWEVER, FRENCH CULTURE HAD CHANGED THE VIKINGS (NORMANS), SO MUCH THAT THEY SPOKE WITH FRENCH ACCENTS, AND LOOKED MORE LIKE POODLES THAN DUCKS. THE VERSATILE EXTRATERRESTRIALS, WHEN THEY INVADED, TOOK THIS IN STRIDE TOO, AND BECAME VERY POODLED IN APPEARANCE.
