... once-solid fish within to a soupy puddle of odorous, pulpy meat. Sara's immediate reaction: "I don't think that's edible."

Jason, however, was undeterred. "Well...I'm eating it," he said, confirming that the rest of us would likely follow suit regardless of how ill-advised the entire enterprise seemed at that point.
