Glass fishbowl bookends

fishbowl-bookends.jpg

Here we have an accident waiting to happen.

Now I don't know about you, but I've had bookends that have been rather unsuccessful in performing their one and only duty on a shelf. Forgive my overgeneralization here, but I'm quite certain that when bookends fail, they really fail. Because not only are they flipped on their sides by the cumulative weight of books that topple like dominoes when forced to stand upright on their own (lazy!), but they also usually shove all the adjacent knick-knacks on display off of the shelf and onto the floor.

This is already a sad sight to come home to when those cheap metal bookends are involved, so can you imagine the horror if these Glass FishBowl Bookends were thrown into the mix? The sewer system would be clogged with goldfish.

Available now in small (6.25") and large (9") sizes for $29 and $39, respectively.

Hi there....ummm, I have a betta (fish). The sad thing about this fish is the ignorant people that think this fish can actually LIVE in circumstances like this. The novelty of such an item is JUST that! If it looks to fun and kitchy (sp?) it is. The brains behind this one should be housed in their own 'invention'.

Charoe:

it would have been fun if only they'd used a fake fish in jelly or something. it's not right to keep a goldfish in a bowl, let alone such a tiny bowl!

WindyCityGirl:

Umm... isn't this a bit cruel? These are LIVING creatures.

rkn:

First of all, there are dictionaries available on the internet with which to look the spelling of words up.

Secondly, there has been much documentation on bettas actively preferring small environments similar to those of their native habitat.

That said, yes it is cruel to put a goldfish in there.
