A fish funeral, from the human perspective, is the topic of this Close to Home cartoon. How many of us have disposed of a deceased goldfish down the toilet? We did that when I was a kid.
Now we’ve got a back yard pond, and our goldfish are just too big to flush.
The ironic part of this cartoon – all the fish are on land. What’s up with that? “Ashes to ashes, flush to flush.” It looks like the fish to the far left is a rabbi fish (as opposed to a monk fish).
