    Reminds me of the Salmon of Knowledge from Irish mythology (as featured as one of the animal masks in The Wicker Man).

    This immediately brings to mind the Captain Beefheart masterpiece Trout Mask Replica:

    This cod had driven a delivery truck for 28 years. The other side of its face doesn’t look nearly so bad.

    A victory trophy from the Cod Wars, perhaps?

    Heh, they can be bigger.

    Why wear the thing as a hat to scare your enemies.   If you really want to scare them, wear it as a cod piece plus it might impress the ladies too.

    Brett Harper  already noticed this, but I agree:  Sleestak!  What evidence do we have that this is really a fish head?

    Called “Sgaagaay”.

    “Nothing intimidates your enemies quite like wearing the head of a fish on your head.”
    Hmm… well… I think it would be even more intimidating if it was actually worn as a codpiece.

  20. Nash Rambler says:

    Look, I’ll admit it – I’d be intimidated.

    A genuine ichthian horror on the battlefield might leave me questioning my sanity.

  22. Ethan Taliesin Houser says:

    Sure that B and B wasn’t in Innsmouth, Massachusetts?

  23. CLamb says:

    This reminds me of the South Park Family Guy scene where Mohammed delivers a salmon helmet.

  24. I would intimidate them back by dressing as a giant bottle of Tartar sauce.
