I Have a Herring Problem


(suggested independently by Charlie and Laura)

Oh, I'm sorry. Did you need me to speak up?

  1. I'm sorry, what? You were on JEOPARDY? How was it? Hope you won a ton of money!

    And I cannot understand this color name, not at all. Blue = water, ok. But after that? No.

  2. The single most politically incorrect polish name in history!

  3. Hello! *waves*

    I think the most grating thing about this name for me is that herring jokes are a hackneyed stereotype of Scandinavia, not Holland. Could at least have got that right ...

    1. It's not that herring JOKES are typically Dutch, but herring's are. The Dutch are famous for their herring and developed te process of preparing herring in the Middle Ages, which later spread to Scandinavia..

    2. Thank you! Something I didn't know ...

      Either way, it's a stupid, stupid name. There were some dreadful puns in this collection even by OPI's standards ("Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh" was another one) but I think this one was easily the worst.

  5. Actually I don't mind this name... it's kinda funny (I picture someone having a pickled herring addiction). You should totally do some of the new Germany collection though. Some of the worst "puns" ever...
