Have you ever won a goldfish at a fair, bought a bowl for it to live in, complete with plastic pirate ship and gravel (stolen from the neighbours driveway), only to discover it is the most boring pet ever, it’s bowl is tedious to clean out, you always forget to feed it, so you flushed it down the loo?
No? Oh. Well the Diary, which of course has never done anything of the sort, has received an appeal from Toyota to find a new home for its “talking” goldfish – the stars of its ITV movie premiere indents.
The goldfish currently reside in a tranquil Japanese water garden pond at Toyota’s Redhill, Surrey, headquarters. But because the company is relocating they face homelessness.
So why don’t any of Toyota’s staff want to take them in? And why can’t another pond be built at the new site? Sounds decidedly fishy.
