Shop in trouble for sticking googly eyes on fish to make them seem fresh
Why am I crying?
Sometimes, you read something on the Internet that just makes you laugh out loud.
And for me, usually those stories are weird, rather than actually funny.
My latest laugh-out-loud tale involves some crafty fish mongers.
Stay with me here...
A shop in Kuwait is facing closure for sticking googly eyes onto fish, to make them appear fresh.
And I am deceased by this news.
Never judge the freshness of fish by the googliness of their eyes. https://t.co/hW50lwpwCz

A video of these trickster fish was circulated locally through Whatsapp, and now the shop is in serious trouble.
Rightly, but still, 10/10 for effort I say.
Pictures, including one showing one of the fake eyes slipping off, have been shared on social media by bloggers and a local newspaper Al Bayan.
You couldn't make this up.
