Aren't guppies fun? It's like a special surprise- you never know what you're going to get. Unless of course you're doing very controlled selective breeding. But even then, you never know :P

My boyfriend, observing my guppy tank:
"Someone should write a book about guppies called 'Everyone Poops. And Then Everyone Tries to Eat the Poop Because They Think It's Food.'"
