Jeff, you've had a brilliant idea, and if I had a job I'd pledge to quit it in a similar fashion. However, I despise spending money on items or activities that are even peripheral to any employment, much less jobs that I HATE. May I suggest that you use a smallish roadkill instead? It would eliminate any (unlikely) qualms you might eventually feel about supporting the fishing industry, provide an obvious allegory for your work experience, smell at least as bad a fish, and you wouldn't have to spend any of your own money. Depending on where you live, I might be able to hook you up with a selection of partially caved-in, tire-marked, high-intensity stench beasts.
Alternatively, you could get a preserved mudshark from a college or high school biolab or biological supply company and put it on a large hoagie roll. Those are the second-worst commonly available things I've ever smelled. (Decomposing molluscs, especially octopus, come in first, and a garbage bag full of year-old, decaying, partially perfused, headless hamsters is third.)
Good luck!zola potts, 14 years ago.
