Same as a buffet, but more hilarious. See also Food, Swedish.

I remember my friend tried to use it and used it out of context. Something along the lines of: "that was a Smorgasbord"....apparently it sounded like it should mean "huge" how...i dont know!! hahah!!
I would like to know! on March 23, 2008
Yep, this word is originally Swedish.
I don't think this thing (Smörgåsbord: it's like a buffé with warm and cold dishes on a big table, and you go around it and take the food that you want on your own plate), I don't think an english word exist for this thing, so they took the Swedish word. ;)
Smörgåsbord became "smorgasbord", they don't have the dots. ;D
"Smörgås" = sandwich
"Bord" = table

It was a Swedish man who introduced the Smörgåsbord to the americans and therefor the word is Smorgasbord
