The Boyfriend and I passed by Washington Square last weekend and saw a skinned halibut corpse rotting on a park bench. Someone had left chunks of wheat bread on top of the halibut, which had turned it into an ant playground. Rats darted out from under the bench, surveyed us, and darted back under. The smell prevented us from getting within three feet of the bench without holding our breath.
We still have no idea why someone would abandon an entire halibut on a park bench in the middle of San Francisco.
