Smörgåsbord

[From MsMorninglory to WordPress.com:Smörgåsbord is a Scandinavian buffet of various dishes and foods originating in Sweden. The concept and word, minus the quirky Swedish accents, went viral at the 1939 New York World Fair where the Swedish Pavilion offered a smorgasbord to visitors. The word is a [1+1]+1 composite of [smörgås]+bord = [smör+gås] + bord = [butter+goose]+table. Smörgås is an open faced sandwich.
