I like the little emoticons on the site. I get a good laugh at the 'Eek' one because i think it looks like a goldfish's front profile. Seriously, look....

Its funny isnt it?!

It does! Like a goldfish in a bowl who realizes for a second that hey, wait a minute, I've been here before... and then... whoops! That's all his brain can hold.

Do you guys ever watch the Myth Busters TV show? They take urban legends and try and prove or disprove them.

One of the myths they recently tested was the myth that Goldfish have no long term memory, and thus never get bored swimming around in their tanks.

They proved, by teaching goldfish to remember the path through a maze to get food, that goldfish do, in fact, have the ability to remember things.

Interesting, no?

Okay, maybe no.

Greg, I did not know that.

I'm off to buy some poster paint and make huge FREE THE GOLDFISH placards.

I'll be the lunatic standing in Trafalgar Sq screaming at passers-by this afternoon. I expect you all to attend.

The thought of these heartbroken Goldfish who will never know liberation is crushing me, look at their little faces....oh, the humanity!

I'll join the FREE THE GOLDFISH campaign, WeeJoe! Goldfish were my first ever pets (and the only ones I haven't been allergic to!!). They were called Mork and Mindy, how awful that they have been taught to remember things...they should be left alone to swim aimlessly around their tanks. I want to get a goldfish now, but my boyfriend says no!

All together now:

FREE THE GOLDFISH!!!

Well, there was that creative cutting I did with a piece of trout last week. It was already dead when I got it, though.
