I noticed a sign on a pole while walking the dogs today.  Instead of the usual lost cat picture or yard sale directions, a cartoon figure took up half the sign.  Curious, I looked closer.  “Lost Goldfish” it proclaimed with a bowl next to the cartoon figure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is this a joke?  How do you lose a goldfish?  Did Mom or Dad promise to help little Danny find his goldfish even though they knew the cat ate it?

Determined to find out how you lose a goldfish, I typed “lost goldfish” into Google and hit search.  Now, you can buy lost goldfish posters, which are a joke.  I don’t get the funny bit about putting up this poster on a pole.  Unless your neighbors aren’t real bright, easily taken in and practical jokes tickle your fancy.

Then, I clicked on a post about goldfish and aquariums.  Here is how you lose a goldfish.  If you have a big aquarium with a just a few fish and lots of doodads in it, your goldfish may get stuck.  The goldfish in question remained stuck for almost 2 weeks.  The aquarium owner claimed he’d searched high and low including all the doodads.  The fish looked pretty beat up when it reappeared to the owner’s amazement.   There is another way to lose a goldfish.   If it dies the other fish consume it.  Not a happy thought but protein is protein even if it’s your aquarium mate.  That’s according to the goldfish experts.

Have you seen an unusual lost animal poster, similar to the ones at this website http://www.urlesque.com/2010/11/22/25-hilarious-lost-pet-flyers?
