Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead.

The close personal friend has just informed me that Jules, our beloved goldfish, has passed on. It hasn't hit us too hard - we knew this day was coming as he had taken to floating upside down at the top of his bowl.

Initially we had two goldfish - Jules and Vincent. They had a sticker on the bowl that read Pulp Fishin'.

Vincent died tragically young - we suspect Jules may have killed him over some bizarre love triangle involving the 2 lads and the mermaid ornament at the bottom of the bowl. Owing to the absence of a murder weapon or CSI:Fish we had to give him the benefit of the doubt. (My guess is that he held his fin over Vincent's mouth and suffocated him).

Fish and chips tonight!

Oh for Cod's sake! If there's one thing I can't stand, it's people carping on all over the plaice about their dead goldfish.

Jules obviously go in over his head, killed Vincent in a panic and then was slowly poisoned to death by the lead in the paint of the mermaid's shiny Chinese-made tail. It's got the Mob written all over it - look at their names - these fish weren't from Killarney, ya know. Now he's sleeping with the fishes.

There's a time and a plaice for fish puns... and when I'm mourning the death of my sub-aqua friend isn't it.

If only there had been a sturgeon around at the time - he/she could have saved Jules' life.
