I asked Gilbert the dog walker to look after my fish while on vacation. I'm not sure that was a good idea.

Akaya's family never could afford a dog,... But watching the boy play with his fish was entertaining...

Akaya: "Hey, boy,... Fetch the stick, come on boy,... Fetch the stick, fetch it boy,... Fetch it, fetch."

That is really taking genetic experiments between humans and other species to an unacceptable level. The least they could have done is cure the human of "pinkeye" first, and that case of warts around the lips, that is completely disgusting.

If Kim's science fair project on evolution was going to work, he needed to show the fish why it would want to walk on land.

It must be unlawful to stare at other people's pets in this country, or maybe they are afraid of the piranha.

In other news, Wings' new cell phone security system is all wet.

In response to the fitness craze, his goldfish just insisted on being taken out for a daily walk around the block, until Animal Control saw that the owner didn't have the proper fish license...
