And was that what you meant by that term? Why not pray for a fish.
Better yet, pray for £1000

What would have happened if you'd prayed to a glass of water?

Are you 10?

Perhaps your new friend can teach you about life.
6/13/2008 2:10:10 PM
A fish! Fancy that - it could have been two house plants and you'd have a party. A menage! And tripled your collective I.Q.

Either a poe or depressingly sad.
6/13/2008 2:14:49 PM
A fish-in-a-tank does not a friend make.
Maybe a little more prayin' will get you a Spidey Action Figure.
At least you wouldn't have to drag the bowl around...

I really hoping this is a poe.
6/13/2008 2:21:41 PM
Agree. If not a poe then this has to be one of the sadest things I've read in quite some time.

Evidently the exchange rate between prayers and miraculous blessings is a bit steep. At that rate, if you prayed for wealth you'd probably find a penny in the street, if you prayed for happiness, you might be erroneously sent a worn out vhs copy of an Ernest movie in the mail, and if you prayed for healing from terminal cancer, you'd be lucky to find an extra aspirin in a box you thought was empty.
Either that or this tragic wreck is getting way, way too desperate to see some kind of answer to his prayers. A goldfish as a friend. That's so sad and pathetic it makes me feel physically uncomfortable.

God of Biscuits
This seems way more pathetic than Fundie

She could at least have got you a dog. Your fish is probably not even aware of your existence.
What a mean-spirited mum: she probably heard your prayer, and that's the best she could come up with. What you need to do is get out more, if she'll let you, and make some real friends of your own. Human ones.
You probably don't go to school, but that's where real friends are made.

That's just sad.
6/13/2008 2:37:36 PM
Either this guy is seven, or this is incredibly pathetic (and funny). But if this guy thinks this is actually any kind of proof that prayer works, maybe he and the fish will get along. After all, they would have similar levels of intelligence.
I almost feel bad making fun of him though. Oh well.

Two days later, the fish ran away.
6/13/2008 2:46:02 PM
I kinda feel sorry for this one. I'm gonna have to say I'm glad that he at least has a pet to keep him company, even if it's just a fish.
Actually, I hope he gets a lot of friends, human or otherwise. Lonely = sad. No more sads, plz!

If your prayer was really answered your mum would have brought you a hooker.
6/13/2008 2:49:29 PM
nice one about the fish! er, how's your friend?
6/13/2008 2:50:00 PM
Proof of evolution. The fish grew legs.

Sad, true. But maybe he'll get more satisfaction from his new friend in the tank than his Personal Relationship™ with Jesus. At least this one actually exists
(until Jeremy decides to play god and lets far too much manna rain down from heaven and the poor fish goes belly up).

What are you, 10?
6/13/2008 3:08:59 PM
I feel bad for laughing at the mentally handicapped sometimes.
6/13/2008 3:14:56 PM
This is so sad I want to cry.
6/13/2008 3:19:14 PM
"Two days later, the fish ran away."
He grew legs and walked out of the tank, see, because they didn't have it covered.

Fish - Man's best friend.
