Subject: RE: Folklore: Execution by tying fish on head+bird
Seriously, out of a sense of morbid curiousity I've studied the various means that humans have used to torture and execute their fellows. Some of the means were quite, ah, inventive. I've never run across the method described. That's not to say that it couldn't have been tried, but I doubt that it would work as the first passing bird would have simply snatched the fish and flown away.
Seems to me like a movie idea, not something that actually happened.
