*sigh* I had seen this
online somewhere before but never actually saw it in use. The whole blog entry can be found here
as you can read she is homeschooling her two boys and is using the fish as "class pets" and will be changing the aquarium once a week. She even pretty much says she is counting down the days until they die and they are "done with fish" so I'm not sure, the blog entry is from August 30, 2010 so I do not know if the bettas in question are still alive.
And I couldn't find the betta handbag mentioned earlier but there was this one
that has kind of stuck with me. :(
Oh and if you type "inhuman betta fish aquariums" into Google images you find images like those thingies (tiers I think they are called) in wedding cakes
it's from a blog called "Cake Wrecks
" and if you scroll down to the bottom to the groom's cake you will join me in a group facepalm of course.
Not meaning to get a bit off topic but...does anyone else (who are like me and are very creative) looked at some of these tanks and wonder 'what else could I do with this?' Like say it was a gift, it was on sale so you can't return it but you know better than to put a living animal in it and you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not using it for SOMETHING (because who knows how long Great-Aunt Millie will be around any longer, right?). For example, the book ends...I admit I have been eyeballing them but imagining them on my shelf growing some of my bamboo plants. I don't know, maybe I'm just weird. >_>
