Well, That Was Fun



Fishy Fish died this morning at his home in Oceanside, California, after a half day spent with family and friends at the Starnes house. Born in an unknown location at an unknown time, he was likely one of thousands spawned in a Walmart Aquarium Warehouse.

Fishy Fish enjoyed swimming. And, eating. And, sleeping. We think.

Fishy Fish is survived by Jack the Fish, Carter, Jack the boy, Lainey and Batman. His funeral service was conducted this morning. Details have been undisclosed due to the sensitive nature of his death.

In lieu of flowers, the Starnes family requests you make a donation to the pet store of your choice.

RIP, Fishy Fish. We had some good times.

Either Jack the Fish ate Fishy Fish or Lainey killed it by blowing harmful bacteria into the bowl. So sorry.

OMG - is bad that I am LMAO? I mean due to the sensitive nature of this post it probably isn't appropriate but would you expect any less from me? I hope that doesn't mean I am not invited to your house for dinner now! Don't tell Lainey and Jack the boy (or Jack the fish). Hey - did Meow Meow eat it?

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know that in only the 1/2 day that he spent in his nice bowl swimming around that he built a bond in the Starnes house...or committed suicide...either way it is terrible and I'm so sorry.

Wow. That was fast. Can we blame Batman at all?

I'm so sorry for your loss. Can I send over a meal so you don't have to worry about cooking tonight?

Well shit. I kinda called this. And this obit is just awesome. You are so flippin' fabulous Case.... thanks for the morning laugh. But truly, I am mourning. Fishy Fishy will be in thoughts all day. May the great aquarium in the sky be good to him.

Walmart sucks but especially for things that are alive like fish and plants. RIP, Fishy Fish.

Those punks scared him to death - only explanation.

Poor fishy fish! Ash got a beta fish, you know the kind you can't kill, for her 3rd bday from my mother in law. We named it Sushi, he was dead on day 2 of being at our house....I'm not a fish person at all!!

Oh and let Lainey wear the heals, she is in a fragile state! She could be in the denial stage of mourning and we all know a pair of sassy heals helps everything! :) Works for me!!

With tears streaming down my face (from laughter!), I'd like to send my warmest thoughts to you and your family in this time of, well loss, I guess. :)

Your next fish needs to be named Lamont.

Allyson and Dave said...

How sad. That did not take long. Maybe we was loved too much for a little fish.

Just curious, do you have a water softener? I killed my last Beta by putting water in his bowl that had been run through a water softener. It adds too much salt to the water.

Or it could be the fact the he came from Walmart. They have more dead fish in their tanks than live ones.

R.I.P. Fishy Fish, I'm sure you will be missed.

Name the next fish Phaedra

Mae Mae said...

fishy fish looked at the chaos outside that lovely home of his and said " I am outta here!" think about it, the black cat, the kids, the noise. . .a nice quiet suicide was the best way to go. . .sorry for your loss, but the obit has me on the floor with laughter!

Suicide.

Becca Jane said...

Aww, I lost many a fish in my day. I bawled every time, and my older siblings would make fun of me. Poor Fishy....

Fishy Fish was short lived. RIP Fishy Fish.

Mr. Mack and I cracked up over the fish obit.
