Something’s Fishy Here

Hello! You are hearing me talking to you. I am Professor Phish. Just call me Doc. You must go to the pet supply store. The door will open up. Walk in. You will be guided to a little treasure chest. Pay no attention to the little castle, no matter what the other fish there tell you! I must have the treasure chest! Only you can do this. See you soon.

Bobo the fish is making quite a spectacle of himself, Trish W.

    It reminds me of the Incredible Mr. Limpet! So cute!

  2. JenDeyan says:

    That’s the first thing I thought. ^_^

  3. reminded me of lisa loeb

  4. Fird Birfle says:

    ooooooo THAT’s retro AND way cool!!! :)


  5. Emo walleye had fisheye lenses before they were cool.

    8-O How…..?

  7. Mary (the first) says:

    Yeah, how do they get a fish to wear glasses?

  8. Look closely: They’re taped to the glass. They only had to wait for Bobo to swim just right.

  9. skippymom says:

    Aw, why’d you have to spoil it?

  10. Fird Birfle says:

    psst: sk/mom: ‘cuz sumbuddy ASKED !!!!! ;)

  11. Mary (the first) says:

    Who’s got the patience to sit and wait for a fish to “swim just right”??

  12. Alice Shortcake says:

    Someone who wants a photo of their pet fish wearing glasses!

  13. *Drum roll*

  14. But they probably waited for hours…lol

  15. or they knew their feesh’s OCD and taped the glasses in one of his usual spots

  16. Cute Overloaders live in a virtual, world, Deckard. It IS possible to get your fish to wear glasses on Planet CO, you just need to know how ;)

    And, in the Skippy household this evening, mom will be annoying the cats by repeatedly going up to them and saying, “Hello! You are hearing me talking to you.”

  18. skippymom says:

    In a strange, indeterminate psuedo-European accent, of course.

  19. Naturally, skippymom, we wouldn’t expect any less from you.

    I’ll try the same thing over here with our two cats. They’re used to all sorts of bizarre behavior from their parents, so they’ll probably just roll over and clean their toes while giving me sideways glances.

  20. skippymom says:

    So I tried this last night, and, predictably, the three intelligent ones just ignored me while Eddy looked terrified.
    Gotta come up with a new way to mess with them tonight for our big Saturday night entertainment.

  22. cellarmouse says:

    how?…you can’t have watched everything in the world, much less be able to recall the perfect reference on demand…so how?…

  23. Ah, that’s where you’re wrong. :P

  24. This is truly the silliest post in a very long time. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  25. It’s a Clark Kent fish.

  26. Niiice!

  27. snoopysnake says:

    Temptations fans would have named this fish David Roughy.

  28. Theresa says:


  29. PS:

  30. cellarmouse says:

    see what i mean?…it’s spooky…

    an’ i luv me some temptations…

  31. SlaveToCat says:

    Is that Mr. Limpet or the Talented Mr. Ripley?

  32. Tater Tot says:

    He seems to be such a scholarly fellow.

  33. What in the name of sanity is THAT? 8O

  34. cellarmouse says:

    i don’t remember him being so animated…

  35. I do! Wasn’t even my fault. ;)

  36. Hmmmmm!!111!!!

  38. Victoria, mom to 5 rats says:

    Cute pic and I hate to be the voice of ’nuff here, but Professor Phish needs a much larger tank than that if he has any hope of living the 10+ year goldfish lifespan.

    It’d be a great tank for a betta though.

  39. Very cute :)
    I hope they get that fish a bigger tank though. Goldfish get get very large. Fish growing to the size of their tank= fish are stunted and can die from it.
    Just fyi.. wanted to get that out there :D

    *waves pompoms, for treasure chests with vast riches inside*

  41. The Little Myrmidon says:

    I used to be an adventurer like you ’til I took a Sword-Grass to the knee.

  42. JenDeyan says:

    So many Skyrim players.

  43. biscuithead says:

    It’s the common Hipsterfish.

  44. Hunted by the Common HipsterCat:

  46. Fird Birfle says:

    but, sk’mom,
    wot if Mike becomes available and you’re already married to Professor Phish??

  47. Well, then she won’t need to join the free-for-all the NTMTOM marriage line will undoubtedly turn into….. *whistles innacently*

  48. Ladies ladies. Don’t you all remember my CREATION, the INVISIBLE STABLE of EXTRA-DIMENSIONAL HUSBANDS? (ISEDH)

  49. biscuithead says:


  50. Looks like this fish is wearing glasses stolen from “Charlie the Tuna” or do all fish get their glasses from the same optical supplier.

  51. yes, it helps them sea.
