Alfred The Goldfish
My father's friend offered the guy at the counter $5 bucks for a fish, but he wouldn't take it (an obvious scam, of course). So we proceeded to shell out $20 bucks for a tiny goldfish that probably wouldn't last through the night... Little did I know that Alfred would live to be 16 years old.
Fast forward 27 years to a local county fair...
It was the first time my wife and I had willingly let our children run wild with the carnies. We sauntered between the livestock, booths and bands, hoping for a glimmer of our freed youths. And that's when I saw it - the beautiful fish filled tent, staring at me like a long lost child. Two dollars later and I was the proud new parent to Alfred III.
Did you know alfred is a tweeting fish? @AlfredGoldfish
The alfred cam constantly monitors alfred 24 hours a day. The custom software tracks his movement
throughout the tank providing an exact location. Since his location is known, his twitter profile
picture is updated frequently. His tweets are composed of madlibs that insert
words based on his tank location. Not only that, he serves as a "Magic 8 Ball"! Simply
tweet directly to him and he will respond with your answer. He also responds to direct messages...
So I guess you could say, I talk to my fish. If you DM him a new madlib, he may even add it to his list.
