What were his initial symptoms? Memory loss?


#3

Totally didn’t just nip out the back and buy a similar looking new fish from the pet shop.


#4

No, he kept complaining about a smell of burnt rubber.


#5

Apparently it went “swimmingly” … BBC’s pun, not mine.

Awesome.


#6

Wait…goldfish can live for more than three days?


#7

Seriously?


#8

Ya, it’s a big step function – either days/weeks or decades.

I recall those carnival ones in colored water that one could win by tossing a ping pong ball in the bowl; 99.9% died within a week – the 0.1% that didn’t went on forever.

Perhaps George just had a few Oranda genes in his family tree.


#10

Interesting - I knew from reading my Blaylock that carp never die of natural causes, of course…but Goldfish? Huh


#11

How is this not linking to The Onion??


#12

Goldfish are members of the Cyprinidae as are carp. In fact, goldfish (Carassius auratus) can even interbreed with carp.


#13

If that’s the case, then “It’s not a tumah”.


#14

Is it Lupus?


#15

Kind of like dogs and wolves! Except when you throw a stick your goldfish just sits there, opening and closing his mouth.
