"I worked in this restaurant and we'd get these big fish in," Yow explained. "On the day before Halloween, the head chef was skinning the fish and I asked if I could have it."
Unfortunately for Yow's fellow revelers on Halloween, the chef consented. "I had a gas mask so I wouldn't have to deal with it... but I could hear these people going, 'Damn! Holy s---, what is that!'"
The only problem? "Every now and then," Yow said, "I had to take it off to drink."
