    If Our Fish Could Talk

    -- A bit of fish comedy from Jeff Snyder . . . who else? :)

    Have you ever wondered what our fish might say to us if they were able to
    talk? I currently have a tank full of mbunas; and given their nature, I
    think they might say something like the following. I hope that you have a
    good sense of humor:

    "Why are you feeding us pellets that have been in the refrigerator for two years?!"

    "Hey! Human! It's after 9 PM! Turn down the lights!"

    "Stop messing with the rocks! I liked my cave just the way it was!"

    "I want more women in here! Get rid of these other dudes!"

    "Get off your lazy butt and give us a water change!"

    "Haven't you ever heard of over-population? You're really pushing it,

    My gosh! At least brush your teeth if you're going to stare at us like

    "No! I don't like hard rock music! Put on some classical! Jeesh!"

    "One degree hotter in here and we're all dead! Don't you care?!"

    Fry: Ooh, paps! That's ugly! Is it dangerous?!

    Well, if you enjoyed the previous quotations, here are a few more that I
    came up with. This first one is a mbuna complaining about his food:

    "You see this mouth? You see that pellet? Yeah, that's right; there's
    something very wrong here! Next time, buy us a smaller pellet, okay?! What
    were you thinking!?"

    Now here's Papa Mbuna carefully sharing a life lesson with his new young

    Papa Mbuna: "Now kids, when you see the big blue thing rubbing away over
    there, don't worry; it's no threat to us; it's just the janitor cleaning the glass. On the other hand, when you see the big white mesh thing, RUN FOR

    The wide-eyed fry reply: "Why papa? What is it?"

    Papa Mbuna: "Haven't you heard?! ALIEN ABUCTION! When that thing appears,
    our kind just disappear and are never seen again! They are just up and
