Psychologist Richard Wiseman has surveyed pet owners to find out what they think about their pets:
Over half of fish owners said their watery friends had a good sense of humour….The survey also asked people to evaluate themselves. “Fish owners were the happiest,” Wiseman reported on his Quirkology website.
I suppose I’d be pretty happy too if I were so dim that I thought my fish appreciated my jokes. Go ahead, fish owners, defend yourselves.
