The World Turned Upside Down

Fish discover the view from above.


Everything is a nightmare. Here are some fish whose environment has changed, transitioning to a new set of circumstances they didn’t even realize were possible.

What do you think it’s like, as a fish living in a koi pond, to suddenly see a tree from that angle? Or a car? It’s got to be at least a little surprising. There they are with a brand new vantage point on all of the shit that’s been surrounding them this entire time.

These goldieboys seem to be having the time of their life.

These guys are just kind of staring out into space, stunned.

Mein koi is an amazing word pair.

Everything’s wild here until it gets… even wilder.

These giants seem pretty relaxed.

Tag yourself.




Be less stupid.
