Fisherman’s Friends

I have a sore throat today and I asked Mika if she had any Fisherman’s Friends. She asked what they were. I said "fish."

I was making a joke. After all, calling a fish a "fisherman’s friend" implies a relationship that is beyond the realm of even dysfunctional friendships. Of course, this also makes one wonder about the term "friend" in the context of a throat lozenge that hardly fairs any better than the fish in the same company.

  1. In Denmark, fisherman’s friend sell some odd mixture of vodka and their pastils. It actually tastes quite nice. So if you go to a bar in denmark and ask for a fish, you will actually get this vodka based drink.

  2. My ma just won a 1.5 litre bottle of vodka in a raffle, and she doesn’t drink the stuff. So I think it is time for a very scientific experiment with our little friends. I think the vodka is more a friend to any fishermen I’ve met!
