For those who don’t like Shitto…


Those who don’t like Shitto, the delicacy from Ghana, can head to Sweden for some Pucko. Mmm mmm. I can’t wait to try it. In fact, I want to drink my Pucko while I eat my Shitto.

  1. You almost made me spit my wine out with laughter… “In fact, I want to drink my Pucko while I eat my Shitto.”


    Oh yes… I’ll have some shitto and Pucko as well!

    Actually, it sounds a lot better than a bowl of corn/wheat/rice cereal…maybe.

    Or how about Shitto with a Pucko chaser?



  2. What is “pucko” to you? Help me with the funny part.

    Hi Leif–

    You’re obviously from Sweden where, for all I know, Pucko is a mainstay of the diet.

    In idiomatic English ‘puke’ is both a noun and a verb.  The verb ‘to puke’ means to vomit.  The noun ‘puke’ means the vomit itself.

    Anyone who is a native US English speaker would immediately identify a food product called ‘Pucko’ with eating ‘puke’ or vomit.

    That’s why it’s funny here.



  3. On wikipedia, they say:

    * Pucko means “idiot” in Swedish.

    Being a high-carb drink, it’s not much better than puke.

    Puke may actually have fewer carbs.
