I sent a text to the number, and continued a heated discussion on the guy's ignorance, immaturity, and irresponsibility for a good few minutes, which ended with an irate phone call from his end with words which I shall not repeat for him here.

I would suggest that others do the same. Idiot.

Maybe i really have that sick of humor... But thats kinda funny... I mean he isn't harming the fish at all, yes it's twisted and very sick humor... But i would so do that to my friends lol

Now if it was actually blending fish i could see grounds for getting in an uproar. But he isn't.

Kinda agree. It seems like just a joke.

What you are looking at its a fine example of funny/failed entrepreneurship. Maybe he is getting the response he is looking for. Tell me of a better way to market a broken blender?

Kiran, I mean no disrespect, but messing with the dude and sighting immaturity on his side it's a bit confusing to me.

Ultimately bad taste is not a crime, it's just bad taste.

I don't see how anyone could not see the cruelty of this. Imagine yourself as the fish living in a tiny column of water with barely enough room to turn around in, no filtration, and every time you try to explore the bottom you get poked and cut by sharp blades. On top of all that a group of idiot giants gather around laughing now and then while they cause your whole world to vibrate and scream with noise.

Yet I guess it's better than life for goldfish in the 70's when the whole 'swallow live goldfish' craze was going on...

In all honesty, the blender part is a little funny and would scare friends, and be a good joke for a few minutes. However, a blender is no better than a plastic PetSmart cup or a bowl. My issue is with the amount of water, the lack of filtration, and the type if fish.

+1.

From the ad, it seems he is selling the broken blender together with the fish, in which case, the fish will be in there for some time. Space wise, oxygen wise, water quality wise, it is going to kill the fish before this thing is sold.

Maybe i missed it in the add, but does he say it's where he keeps the goldfish, or where the goldfish could be housed?

It's just a pitiful albit somewhat funny marketing ploy.

Whether he keeps it in there or not if his marketing ploy is successful the new owner (dupe) will use it as such. Never underestimate the ignorance of someone that would buy a broken blender.

Yeah I'm with you, I find it kind of amusing and creative, then again I have a warped sense of humor, use to like joe's cartoons with frog in a blender and such lol.
