News Article - Totally applicable to all pet owners

While reading the paper the other day, I came across this fabulous article. I could totally relate to it, as I do the same thing with my fish. What do you think?

GURNEE, IL—According to friends and family members, 34-year-old Josh Ferguson has really been pushing the bounds of credulity lately by ascribing specific personality traits to his seven tropical fish. "This guy here, he's a bit of a loner," Ferguson told reporters Sunday, pointing at a fish who was, at that moment, swimming in a different part of the tank than the other six fish. "And that fish over there, he can be kind of a jerk." At press time, Ferguson was poring over different varieties of fish-food flakes at his local pet store while explaining to a clerk that each of his fish was an "extremely picky eater."

I love how The Onion embodies the philosophy that fiction contains the most fundamental truths. Take that Plato!

I love my Onions :) Thanks for sharing.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
