London Art Gallery rotting fish exhibit resulted in fire.

Last week,  a London Gallery featured a rotting fish art exhibit, but it exploded causing a fire.   Dozens of small, transparent bags, each containing a rotting fish decorated with stitched-on sequins and beads, were fixed to a wall.   ‘Majestic Splendor’ previously assaulted visitor’s noses in New York City during January 1997, so it was decided to include a chemical called potassium permanganate in these bags to reduce the odours.   Considered more reliable than refrigeration, it was not understood that this mixture with the decaying vapours from the fish might make a very explosive combination.    Alternatively the explosion might have resulted from pressure build-up in the bags.   Fortunately fire-fighters quickly put out the blaze, and a security guard was treated for smoke inhalation.

[Tyler, I do not know where to put this, but it might be of interest.   No reference to eating but definitely different!]

Raw-meat humour(or any other kind of humour) really belongs in the permanent sticky "Give us a laugh" thread in the off-topics forum.*Topic moved*.
