"The Grab" by Richard Laymon - A barkeep keeps the zombie head of a cannibal in a fish tank and places a 1000 dollar diamond ring in its mouth so that patrons can have the chance to extract it for ten bucks. The sting in the tail occurs when the protagonist realizes the head isn't dead and the bar's regulars, several with mutilated hands, force him to participate after a failed attempt from his predecessor saying "Maybe you'll have good luck. Alf's a lot more tame after a good meal."
