One More Childhood Dream Shattered...


What kid wouldn't want a bowl full of happiness? I always wanted sea monkeys, but never had any. I never met anyone who had them either. But I have heard distant grumblings from the many who bought them, and instantly burst into tears.

I remember having these. I was about beside myself with excitement when those tiny little things began to swim around, but it was disappointing when they didn't grow limbs and wear big smiles like on the package.

I searched & searched for those happy faces under the magnifying glass.

Well be carefull what you wish for, I sold my business and liquified all my assets so as to open a Sea Monkey Zoo and also I had dreams of training the smart ones to be Helper Sea Monkeys. I was able with a secret formula to raise them to about 80lbs but then they became very aggressive. I had all sorts of unspeakable acts going on in my aquarium and then when I would try to clean the thing they would pitch scat at me, very unpleasant to be coverered with filthy sea monkey water and scat. I'm putting them up for adoption!

These testimonials really make me glad I didn't waste my money on Sea Monkeys, especially since Josh's sea monkeys might have thought of smuggling some of the secret formula to their relatives and then we'd be living on Planet of the Sea Monkeys.

I put this on JWs too but this might explain a bit. "The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys" . . . Best Saturday morning TV show next to cartoons and “Stooges”. Sea monkeys are a variety of Artemia (crustaceans such as Brine Shrimp or Seed Shrimps), successfully marketed as a "pet" product due to the appealing underwater fantasies depicted by Joe Orlando in his cartoon ad illustrations. I know monkeys are funny, but Sea monkeys are funny and wet.

Damn Joe Orlando and his fabulous cartoon Sea Monkey creations!! Damn him all to hell!!! I want my funny wet cartoon Sea Monkeys, not some poor captured innocent brine shrimp! I'll get you, Joe Orlando, if it's the last thing I do!!!
