My roommate sent the following email to me and my friend, Jafo, yesterday.
I read online someone took their beta fish to the vet. I also saw where they’re asking the most humane way to kill a fish that’s sick. Am I cruel and heartless in that I’d look to the toilet for both situations? Am I not fit to be a fish owner?
Before I had read it, Jafo had replied with:
Wide open door for us to stroll through here in terms of what kind of things you aren’t fit to own. Just a gaping hole for us to stream foul, evil comments through. Thanks for that.
As far as fish go, for most of your generic aquarium fish, if that stuff that pet stores have that you squeeze into their tanks when they are stressed doesn’t work, the toilet is effective. For actually wanting to kill one, they could freeze it. Or do what one of my roommates did with one of his – chuck it in a plastic shopping bag and slam it into a wall and the ground.
Shit. I can’t top that.
Sometimes it’s better to just watch things unfold.
