As if they completely forgot about the fact that there is currently an Ebola outbreak going on, the World has made an incredible fuss over a video of a smoking fish that was uploaded to LiveLeak this week. The story is that a group of fishermen put a lit cigarette into the fish’s mouth and filmed it, hosing themselves as the fishy takes puffs of the eintjie.
As people started protesting the fact that this was a case of animal cruelty (I tend to agree, poor little fish), the jokes also started to flow thick and fast –
Must be a puffer fish
What do you think? Laugh-worthy or just plain cruel?
