FLASH! Goldfish Bowls Banned in Monza

“A fish kept in a bowl has a distorted view of reality…and suffers because of this.”

I am not making that up.

    They are right. It is bad for them, like a person with 20/20 eyes wearing granny’s old glasses. Flat walls are preferable.

    BTW, Happy Name Day (Roar!).

    Keeping fish in a bowl IS bad for them. They should be in a pan or on the grill with plenty of butter, lemon and your favorite seasoning.

    This news about goldfish is hard to swallow.

    Public schools often distort one’s view of reality. I wonder if they will be abolished next?

    The ones in the bowl are less likely to be lunch, as one of the comments suggested above. In some way it’s like saying people shouldn’t be cooped up on this little rock with a thin veil of air “separating us” from space. And instant death.

    I would think that we all the major political issues affecting Italy (and in particular the Lombardia region where Monza is) the city council would have more important issues to consider. They probably do, so I wonder why they devoted their efforts to this. Where did it come from?

    That’s quite a fishy story!
