Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

"Dinner is served, bitches."


Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time is a parody of EPICMEALTIME, done with the Large Ham and What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome? levels turned Up to Eleven, and overall making the whole thing more Death Metal. Simply put, you can tell these guys are descended from Horny Vikings. The videos have quickly become very popular, with the official YouTube channel reaching over 28,000 subscribers in little over a month.

In a sense, it's the logical inversion of EPICMEALTIME: While EMT has outlandish foods being prepared with relatively ordinary preparation methods, ROSMT has relatively ordinary foods being prepared with the most batshit insane methods imaginable.

Tropes used in Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time include:


  • Affectionate Parody: of EPICMEALTIME.
  • All Just a Dream: to the relief of the chef, most of the Pain Inflicting Porridge episode was this.
  • April Fools' Day: The name of the episode, Tenacious Tacos, is enough to arouse suspicion...
  • Ax Crazy: Probably the world's first media about cooking to use this trope.
  • Badass Beard: Even more badass with mayo smeared all over it.
  • Non Sequitur Scene: The Catastrophic Crayfish episode starts with the two of them idly drinking coffee. The main chef notes that it tastes funny... and then, well, let's just say the slowed down playback of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is the more rational thing you see.
    • For one thing, the chef is smiling.
    • The Christmas tree decorating scene in the Christmas episode.
  • Berserk Button: It's mayonaise, Not swedish mayo!
  • Bilingual Bonus: Much of the spoken language is screamed Swedish. It's generally more of the same badassery.
    • In Stomachless Sticky Cakes, there's some spoken Finnish (which seems to mildly unsettle the chef). He says "Next time, we speak Finnish".
  • Call Back: Whenever something is repeated, the last videos where they appeared are put on top of the current one.
  • Catch Phrase: "It's good for you!"
    • "Add X - if you want to. We won't. This is REGULAR!"
    • "Swedish style!"
    • The page quote.
    • UGN! (Swedish for oven)
    • "You gotta be gentle with it, like a Swedish lady!"
  • Chef of Iron
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Waterboarding a friend with milk for entertainment. The outtake's caption points out that he's actually drowning. "Next time, we'll need a new assistant."
  • Content Warnings: Rated "B" for Barbaric. "Food and gore. Violence. Ordinary swede."
  • Death Metal: Probably one of the most metal cooking videos in existence. One of the themes is in this style.
  • Dissimile: Bostongurka, "It's like pickles, except it's NOT!"
  • Drunk Driver: While playing Mario Kart:
  • Easter Egg: Click on the "Carrots are good for you" picture on the YouTube channel and you'll find this.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: "Swedish sidepork. It's pork, on the side."
    • "Brown sauce, saucy and brown."
    • "LIQUID BUTTER! Yellow liquid and BUTTERY."
  • Eye Scream: The guy shoves lemons into his eyes during the Superior Smörgåscake episode.
    • He also squeezes lemon juice into his eyes in Catastrophic Crayfish.
    • And rubs onions under his eyes in the Meatball Massacre.
    • The very end of the Christmas episode has the chef in the process of removing another guy's eyeball with a spoon, which is seen again (and again) in the April Fool's episode.
  • Gainax Ending: "Supreme Swedish Pilsner-Sausage" ends with one of the Swedes saying "next time" before having his head spin around and distort while he screams. The screen then informs us "he died".
  • A Glass in the Hand: Whenever something needs juicing, squeezing or mashing, it stands a fair chance of getting crushed to death in one hand.
  • Gratuitious Korean: "Sidepork Pandemonium" features the cook karate chop butter in half, indicated by a Korean flag in the top right corner and subtitles (in Korean).

    • In episode 3, the chef gets his ingredients from an ICA supermarket.

Caption: Next time, we'll figure out who the **** tricked us into making a ******* salad ****.

  • Rock-Paper-Scissors: The Chef challenges Mr. Fox into one to decide which one will take care of the laundry in "Catastrophic Crayfish". He loses.

"One day, Mr. Fox!"
