Experimental ZOMBY: A goldfish dreams of a better life...

This is a perfect example of why I wanted to do a week of Zomby Minus Zomby. The original Ziggy today is some humorless crap in which the Z-man criticizes his pet goldfish for not being as entertaining as cats or dogs. But in my version, the goldfish takes center stage. He stares soulfully, wistfully at the image of an animal (a dog? a cat? a pony?) on the TV screen and yearns for a life he can never have. Adding poignancy to the scene is the fact that the television seemingly depicts a bleak winter landscape. To the goldfish, even this is preferable to his confinement in a glass bowl.
