Cermele: Woman Fries And Eats Pet Goldfish After Fight With Ex-Husband

I know this is a little off-topic for the blog, but it’s too good. I had to share it. While looking at a few news sites this morning, I stumbled across this headline: “Woman Fries And Eats Pet Goldfish After Fight With Ex-Husband.” Here’s the story.


From the New York Daily News:

PASADENA, Tex. – Authorities say a Houston-area woman who was burned up at her former common-law husband fried their pet goldfish and ate some of them…

_Pasadena police say it’s a civil matter and no charges will be filed. The seven goldfish were purchased together by the couple during happier times…

Police spokesman Vance Mitchell says the man reported on Saturday that the woman took the goldfish from his apartment…

Officers who were dispatched to the woman’s home arrived to find four fried goldfish on a plate. The woman said she already ate the other three._

This leaves a few questions unanswered: How does one prepare a goldfish? Fried whole like a shrimp? Filleted? Cajun seasoning or Panko batter? Did she enjoy the goldfish or choke them down, gagging the whole time, but suffering for the sake of revenge?

I ask these things because we fishermen are often left with unused shiners and fatheads at the end of the day. They’re not cheap and I usually dump them. Maybe I’m missing out on something. — JC
