Wanda the Fish by Middleclass twit on 3 June 2004 12:17am
 
I just saw A Fish Called Wanda today and it was brilliant. My grandmother didn't like it too much though. Ahem...she likes dogs. A lot. Yorkies especially. Ah well...

I once named one of my goldfish wanda for a joke. It must have not liked that name much, considering died on the way home from the fair.

Wanda apparently wasn't a palin fan. It's good you're rid of her. :)

But condolences on your loss, heheh.

I once named my goldfish Boadicea.

here's a tip: when buying fish, do not walk through those magnetic shopllfter deterrent type doors/gates. The magnet kills them. Hold the goldfish bag high above your head as you pass through otherwise you will have a very sad day. And a dead fish.

wow is that right?

Magnetic fish killers? Sounds like an urban legend. Or, maybe just bad fish.

Or a really good band name!

I had a little squiggly fantail goldfish named Jon Anderson. He really did look like him, you know, when he wears those robe-like garments on stage. Anyhow, he (the fish, not the Yes singer) and his companion fish, a Bala named "42" survived almost 5 yrs. and one move from one apartment to another. It can be done. Just not around magnets.

I didn't know goldfish lived that long, I've never had one.
I go more for the $40 apiece saltwater fish. But one night the filter broke and they all died. That time my money really DID go down the toilet.
