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. Emo walleye had fisheye lenses before they were cool.

  3. victoreia says:

    😯 How…..?

  4. Mary (the first) says:

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

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

  6. skippymom says:

    Aw, why’d you have to spoil it?

  7. skippymom says:

    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.”

  8. skippymom says:

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

  9. 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.

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

  11. Theresa says:

  12. It’s a Clark Kent fish.

  13. snoopysnake says:

    Temptations fans would have named this fish David Roughy.

  15. Mary (the first) says:

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

  16. But they probably waited for hours…lol

  17. SlaveToCat says:

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

  18. Tater Tot says:

    He seems to be such a scholarly fellow.

  19. PS:

  20. Niiice!

  21. Alice Shortcake says:

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

  22. *Drum roll*

  23. 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 😉

  24. What in the name of sanity is THAT? 😯

  25. 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.

  26. 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 😀

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

  29. JenDeyan says:

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

  30. JenDeyan says:

    So many Skyrim players.

  31. reminded me of lisa loeb

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

  33. 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?…

  34. cellarmouse says:

    see what i mean?…it’s spooky…

    an’ i luv me some temptations…

  35. cellarmouse says:

    i don’t remember him being so animated…

  36. Ah, that’s where you’re wrong. 😛

  37. 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.

  38. biscuithead says:

    It’s the common Hipsterfish.

  39. Hunted by the Common HipsterCat:

  40. I do! Wasn’t even my fault. 😉

  42. Fird Birfle says:

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

  43. Fird Birfle says:


  44. biscuithead says:


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

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

  47. Fird Birfle says:

    ooooooo THAT’s retro AND way cool!!! 🙂


  48. Fird Birfle says:

    psst: sk/mom: ‘cuz sumbuddy ASKED !!!!! 😉

  49. Hmmmmm!!111!!!

  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.
