Fish Tales

One of the fish in at the 'ol biblioteca died.  Gruesomely.  The deceased was removed with all due respect and flushed.  The rest of the tank soldiered on. 

But new grief was to come.  Soon after the loss of our fish, the fish tank guy was proud to tell us that two of our fish were heavy with child.  Both the fish, our staff, and other library insiders rejoiced at the news!

Sadly, fish have no respect for the children of other fish.  In the dark of night, in a horrific act of cannibalism, the baby fish were devoured by other fish in the tank.  Why, we don't know.  The conspicuous lack of hoodies on the baby fish further confounded our quest to find out why this tragedy had happened.

In the meantime, we are keeping a close eye on the tank.  Has fish to fish bullying gone too far?  Is this a case of fishy racial profiling?  Are drugs involved?  We will not rest until the mystery is solved.

Meanwhile, In The Netherlands
