There are more fish in the sea
The last time a fish inside or outside a fish bowl was funny was in 2005 when Barry Schwartz used a Peter Steiner cartoon to end his fabulous Paradox of Choice TED talk.
The ubiquitous bullet-timed goldfish jumping out of a glass bowl on istockphoto.com is not funny.
It is now spring 2010. The goldfish has reached the local stationery shop of Smallville in form of an unfunny greeting card.
I hereby declare the fish in bowl officially dead.
If you find one, please bury it deep. Consider burying it deeper.
Sometimes they come back.
