You should try some. Your reaction would be even more pronounced.

You've tried them?
Very gingerly. There's always the risk of botulism. Living in Alaska has its risks and rewards.
Having tried them, I can't say I recommend them.

Is that like Newfoundland's stinkflipper? I consider myself fairly adventurous culinarily speaking, and even I can't imagine getting a forkful (spoonful? Nevermind, I don't even want to know) past my lips.
I've never encountered stinkflipper, but I suspect they are fairly similar. Essentially, you "preserve" the fish head by letting it do a controlled rot.
This discussion is making my stomach queasy. It's not something you forget easily.

Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up yum!
Skipvia, I envy you for living in Alaska. I do not envy you for having tried stinkhead.
And don't even get me started on stinkflipper. I think I need a soft pretzel.
Skipvia, are you really in Alaska?! How awesome. I'm totally down with sled dogs. I have a thing for sled dogs. Damn, I should make a list...
