Check out this cod piece. Author William
Gibson found it in Masset, BC, Canada. The head
of a 145-pound cod, meant to be worn as a great helm.
Nothing intimidates your enemies quite like wearing
the head of a fish on your head.
EDIT: Mr. Gibson emailed
to say that the photo comes from a local bed and breakfast
... "That thing is in the very excellent Copper
Beech House bed & breakfast in Masset, BC, run by
the Canadian poet Susan Musgrave. We're here because
Doug Coupland recommended it, and it's awesome."
