Reheating fish in the office punishment?

What is the best form of punishment for co-workers who bring leftover fish to reheat in the office kitchen, only to leave a putrid stench that lingers for hours?

Other suggestions welcome in the comments.

Punishment?

I'd go with the walk of shame out of the options offered but here's another one:

They have to call all the leads that BDRs/marketing mark as "super interested, will be easy to sell this one, hot lead!!!!"

Careful with the Gary V...we don't want to show them too much. They'll become indoctrinated; the subject will start screaming into their phone at odd and almost pointless intervals.

Thanks my dude.

And shit, you're right. The Gary video punishment could actually cultivate a much worse beast than an office fish re-heater. Didn't think about that. Good looks

You tell them maybe they could afford Sushi and not resort to reheating old fish for lunch if he hit quota

As someone who lives fish I can confidently say I would never heat it up in the microwave at work. That's just wrong๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I put a purposefully passive aggressive sign asking people not to reheat fish (people did this every day). Got a complaint for a human rights violation saying I was discriminating against people's religion. True story.ย

Eating fish is a religious requirement?

I've heard where people have complained about other foods like curry in the microwave, because again it smells really strong and lingers and the PC police came in and said "oh but that's discriminating against people's cUltUrE" because Indian people worked there...ย 

Uh, isn't it discriminatory to assume that just because someone is Indian they have to eat curry every day?ย

Preaching to the choir! Absolutely ridiculous. Its not like I wrote "for reheating bacon only" or something along those lines haha

I would've argued that it's a bigger human rights violation when someone passed out from nausea after breathing in that stench.

I think I smoked 3 darts back to back after getting "the talk" from the office manager. Just the idiocy of the whole thing. Luckily I reported to someone higher up and in another city so really my F's given were zero. Plus my boss at the time would've laughed haha

I think it was in the Glass Menagerie that the leads mother suggested making fish for dinner on Friday because her date was Irish. The teacher asked me if this was true, cause I'm Irish, and I told them the only tradition we have on Fridays in my house is my da coming home late and my mom hitting him with a frying pan - possibly because she was gonna make fish but my da wasn't home.ย 
I got sent to the office for making up stories

Drop a bottle of buck urine under their desk and leave a post-it on their monitor: "Please refrain from taking your shoes off at work. The carpet under your desk has an indescribable odor and must be professionally cleaned."

Would microwave Indian food make for a harsher or softer punishment?

Fresh Indian food smells delicious. But reheated or microwave Indian food in the office? I can't.

What about good ole fashion mechanics? You might be thinking, cut his brake lines, no.ย 
I'm thinking we buy a mechanics shop, all of us buy 1, and run them individually, we should be able to cover most of the world. After some time he'll need to get his car fixed and walk into one of our shops and we all yell surprise! And jump out, hose him down with blue paint and pink sparkly confetti.ย

Can we also add opening a rubbermaid tub full of hard boiled eggs to the list of punishable offenses?ย  Our break room is self contained and whatever atrocities you commit in there..... linger for a very long time.ย
