Fish #2: The One Eyed Goldfish

One Eyed Goldfish
The Story: After years of raising millions of ten cent goldfish in their stores, Petsmart realized they had a problem. After far too many generations of fish and far too little genetic diversity, these low cost goldfish started to mutate. The size and teeth came first. These fish started growing ten times their normal size in a matter of weeks, and thin sharp teeth started growing in their mouths. These goldfish were once sold as a feeder fish, but now they were the ones eating all the other fish. And then the really weird mutations started happening, like in this particular one-eyed cyclops goldfish. The Petsmart corporate offices were at a loss at what to do with these monster fish, but then someone finally had the bright idea that solved the problem. Sell them to fast food restaurants for fish sandwiches...

I made the goldfish almost entirely out of paper mache. The body is made from recycled newspaper dipped in glue, then covered with tissue and painted. The eye is printed onto photo paper and the teeth are toothpicks.
