We went to the fish store today to trade in some plants, and we picked up some new fish. We got another hatchet fish, along with a pair of rainbow fish. (Here's what they look like.)

Thing is, one of them has a deformed face, so that the lips on one side of its face don't really close, and the same cheek is a little sunken. So he looks less like those fish and more like Two Face from Batman.

I guess we could make a fuss and return him, but he's lived this long, and you can't manufacture that kind of character. Below is a picture of the tank in all its real plant glory, with Two Face and his buddy (the two blue/silver fish) on the left.

It isn't often that Snips gets to combine sitting on laps with watching the fish, so when the opportunity arises, he gets right on it.

You're wrong - I can manufacture that kind of character.
It's one of my special skills.
