Must-see video: Farewell, Flounder
Mon Mar 30 2009
Every kid has been there. One day, he's staring into a glass fishbowl while little Flounder swims around, nibbling at the food floating on the water's surface and dodging strategically-placed synthetic seaweed. The next day, the wee thing is belly-up, its lifeless gills signaling the end of a short life. When you get a kid a fish, as a parent, you're prepared for the inevitable death that often occurs within a matter of weeks. This hilarious but poignant video chronicles that experience: the funeral ceremony of Lucky the fish, as young Maya bids him farewell. All I will say is this: instant Monday afternoon pick-me-up.
