He gets more done before 9AM than you do in a day

Check out Albert "Goooooooaaaal!!!!" Einstein here, the smartest goldfish of all time. He remembers tricks for a whole TEN DAYS and has earned the much sought-after title of "fish with the largest repetoire of tricks" in the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records.

Bravo - o - o !!! [bubbles]

Albert: 'ehn!' [inching soccer ball toward goal]


Congratulations to Dean and son, for their brave and tireless teaching of Albert. Hooray!

Okay Theo... how about ... SUSHIIIII!!! *g* Actually I used to have a series of Betas respectively named, Stick (the fish) Sushi and Wasabi... though the worst were probably Alpha and Omega, the Betas... yeah... cheesey I know..

this big guy rocks though!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:01 AM

AWWWW! I have nothing profound to say, I just like him.

This guy is too cool! None of the fish I ever had could do any tricks!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:09 AM

BTW....How do you teach fish to do tricks?????

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:11 AM

Ooops! Should have checked out the link before that last post.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:12 AM

that fish is super cute & smart

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:15 AM

Thinker -- maybe that should be *snorkle-fishy* ?

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:15 AM

OMG, I love this little guy and his teeny soccer ball!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:16 AM

Caution: The Department of the Blindingly Obvious warns that snorgling fish may lead to inhalation of water and subsequent drowning of the snorgler. Keep away from children under 36 months.

Heh! He reminds me of my gold fish, Google (cuz he was one of those black googly-eyed ones). Google (who predated the search engine, BTW) liked to be pet. He'd swim up to the top and I'd pet his little head and give him food. It was probably mostly the food, but he did often remain at the top ignoring the food until after I'd pet him.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:24 AM

Theo: yes, possibly. Although if I'm going to be pedantic it would be "snorkel", though perhaps that's your point.

Tony James: LOL.

This is one of the coolest things! I'm impressed! Way to go goldie goaler!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:27 AM

Some people just have to much time on their hand.... poor little goldfish!!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Thinker -- maybe one depends on the other.

Equip'st thy snorkel
Before ye snorgle
Lest ye gurgle
With features purple.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:33 AM

OK, full-on belly laugh @ Theo! You are the *best*, man. I love you.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:39 AM

(I just snorgled my water bottle laughing at Theo. Maybe I *do* need a snorkel :-D)

Oh GREAT. Now I can't eat fish anymore. CO has already turned me off meat entirely.
Meg, you'd better not start posting pictures of cute salads. If you do, I'm a dead woman.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 11:51 AM

cool! a footballing god fidh just like beckham!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:11 PM

This picture reminds me of all the possibilities of the universe.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:25 PM

Oh man, so much for sushi tonight...Maymee, I'm with you!!!

Quick, what's a fish with no eye's?

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:35 PM


 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:36 PM

I'm enjoying the orange of the fishie and the orange of the goal posts. A very sporty statement.

Anyway, I'm reminded of something that happened to me when I was very young: my brother put my pet goldfish in my pencil box! Took me days to trace the smell!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:42 PM

None of my fish can do any tricks.. Except the fire-eel (yep, thats correct) who diggs up all the plants...

I'm sure that for a fish, Einstein is relatively smart. I can't believe I'm the first one to make a "relativity" pun...sheesh!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 12:57 PM

Yeah - The Fish School!

I wonder if they've got a subdivision for "barnacle tricks"...

E. Collison
 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 01:06 PM

It was too elementary
To speak of relativity
In this capacity
So my dear dust bunny
Though it would have been funny...
It just didn't occur to me...

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 01:16 PM

Two notes: Good for you, Maymee (if she starts posting cute salads, you'll be just fine, don't worry--I've been a vegan for a couple of years and VERY rarely eat salad!)and Jan Spencer! :D

Another note: Christine, for SHAME! (That was hilariously awful.)

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 01:34 PM

I betcha fish don't say "ehn."

There must be a more watery equivalent. I will endeavor to discover it! (Clunky useage, I know, but you get the idearrr....)

Dear me - the website has its own theme tune!

"You don't like dry land
You wanna move and spin
You don't wanna eat sand
You wanna keep that grin

When you join the Fish School!"


 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 02:14 PM

"I betcha fish don't say "ehn."

Ok - when you're in the bath, put your head under water and say "Ehn". That's the piscine equivalent - don't ask me how to spell it, though...

Instead of "honk shu" when they sleep, goldfish go like this --- blOOOp blOOO

The Cat Herder
 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 02:23 PM

Love the Goalfish.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 02:41 PM

OK, LOL on:

1. BlOOp blOOO
2. The dept. of the Blindingly Obvious

Good God people!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 03:03 PM

What kind of fish is that, I'm not smart, fishwise anyway.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 03:06 PM

Just in time for World Cup.
And WOW - a fish school?! That is cool!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 03:46 PM

Hammy, it's a goldfish--read the description.

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 03:49 PM

Actually I think Crrash put it most succinctly, just a few comments back (2:41 PM).

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 03:55 PM

"Goalfish". Heh heh. Good one. Why didn't I think of that??

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 04:28 PM

Yay for fishy appreciation! My loaches are way cuter though.

I remember hearing about how Oscars have personalities like puppies. I wonder if you can get an Oscar to do this same sort of thing?

The Guy Over There
 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 04:37 PM

"Goalfish" and "blOOOp blOOO"
get a Yay!


Two squid, four squid
Six squid, a dollar [sand]
Everyone for fish snorglin'
Stand up an' holler!

(And NO, I was NOT a cheerleader - not the done thing for the arty types... ;))

Oh my god, I LOVE HIM to little bits and pieces!

 |  Apr 25, 2006 at 05:33 PM

this has nothing to do with this pic although it is cute and i am indeed intrigued by a goal keeping fish. I want to know what do you do when both images on cute tracker are equally cute? I think my head just exploded from the absolutely darling pictures and i just can't possibly choose.

ka9q's wife: when this happens, it's caused by neurons frying from extreme Cuteness Overload. You have no alternative but to slide gibbering under your desk in a catatonic state until your brain re-achieves equilibrium. However, beware: you will be far more vulnerable to the same attack occurring in the following period of time; so it's best to avoid the Cute Tracker for at least a day after that.

I think this fish is wearing Dundee United strip.
Christine: love the joke! :D

 |  Apr 26, 2006 at 06:51 AM

ka9q's wife: when the pictures are equally cute (or uncute--hey, we all have our tastes), i CLICK NOTHING! if you must keep tracking cuteness, you can refresh the page for a new contest.

 |  Apr 26, 2006 at 10:52 AM

Two things:
#1-How'd you teach the fish that?
#2-Where'd you find the soccer set?
