Not Halloween - Real Life

Heads on pikes. That is what some of my friends who identify with the Tea Party would like to see again. They want to hearken back to simpler times when criminals were executed in public and their heads were cut off and put on display to deter others from committing crimes. Perhaps for such criminal behavior as serving lemon with tea (that is what the Tea Party is all about, right?)

So what I want to know is what did these fish do wrong? I saw lots of dried and rotting heads and tails of fish attached to a gate down at Maalaea harbor this morning. To what crime are they serving as a deterrent? Fish don't even drink tea, do they?
