A 30-year-old British man was arrested Friday for buying a goldfish in a pet store and then gulping it down in front of the staff.

Ewe, how gross

The blog is up too early today! I sure hope this guy hasn't tried to swallow his puppy. I've been drunk once in my life and I think I would have remembered if I went into a store and swallowed a goldfish. The next time he wants to try raw fish he should try a sushi bar.

ah, he's British, they're all drunks. oh wait, i've got Scot AND English ancestry. never mind. besides i gotta go get another beer.

What are you doing up so early, cindy? Church?

I thought that too about the puppy.

"Fat, drunk and stupid..." etc., dude. You're 30, not 18.

I am going to Mass today, Jeff. I thought it would be a good idea since my Priest keeps introducing himself to me as a joke.

Customer in pet store:

"And I'll take that chubby little gold one. And some bread crumbs, please."

In retrospect, "McDonald's Pets" was probably a poor choice for the shop's name.

It was the drive-thru that confused him.

(Can I super-size my goldfish for a koi?)

Possible slants..

A friend who dared him to swallow a goldfish without chewing meant a Pepperidge cracker, not a real fish...

Keep your friends close, and goldfish closer....

I thought that also about McDonalds Pets, Meanie...
over 1 million swallowed?

I mean, after all he did pay for it.....
Pretty soon our rights to eat live animals...in public....etc

Seriously, I have seen a drive through pet store.
My reaction was WTF?

"Would you like fries with that?"

Yet, people who eat McDonalds in public go unarrested.

He ordered the PRE filet-o'-fish.

Reincarnated as a toilet-fish?
