Pablo: So my calling for joining King Triton in the ocean didn’t work out too well. Turns out you have to feed yourself and any nobody got time for that. So I decided to enlist in Shang’s army in China to defeat the Hans! Now I’m either suppose to be going to China or Arrendale…Who ever has the most food wins!
Elsa: Will someone please tell the stupid fish that Disney’s Mulan happened ages ago. There is no Hun army to defeat! Nor is there a Hans to defeat; Anna took care of that already. Sigh, this is going to be a long day.
I saw the most wonderful world on TV the other night! Turns out I actually belong in this place called the Ocean and my ruler is King Triton! How neat! I was going to pack up my things and leave but it turns out there aren’t designated eating times so I will have to pass. It’s funny the brochure didn’t mention anything about becoming self-sufficient.
I just spent half the night explaining to Pablo that not everything on the TV is real and that Disney movie’s should not serve as his way of understanding life. Hopefully he won’t discover Finding Nemo. I have a funny feeling he might try to escape when are bowls are getting cleaned.
Pet Owner’s Observation
Pablo seemed really interested in the Little Mermaid last night; I don’t think I’ve ever seen him so active. Something tells me he thinks that might have been what life is like outside the fish bowl…Oh boy. Better not put on Finding Nemo then…
I think me and Elsa are finally starting to bond and become really good fish-mates! He doesn’t always say much but when he does it’s always something funny! Now if Elsa could only love food as much as I do this would be the perfect amigo!
Lord give me strength. I can’t stand Pablo’s absent-minded behavior. It’s completely ridiculous. I mean seriously who thinks about food at all hours of the day?! Even when I insult him he just smiles and dances around his tank. Obviously someone doesn’t understand sarcasm. But…It is nice having someone to talk to…I guess.
Pet Owner’s Observation:
Pablo and Elsa fight like a married couple. They’ve become an odd pair of friends. I guess its true, opposites attract. In this case we have an idiot and arrogance…
Pablo: Ever since I saw The Lego Movie I feel like my life has more meaning other than eating food! I think that I could even be “The Special….”. I came up with my own original thought! “Si Food” It’s what you say when you “see” food! Like it? I’m not sure why but every time I say that Elsa and his snails look at me weird…
Elsa: Pablo is crazy and believes that he’s “The Special”, whatever that means. Oh he’s “special” alright. I almost have the heart to tell him that seafood has already been invented and if he keeps annoying me he’ll be the main course…
Servant Snails: (In French) We believe that the royal blue is planning to sells us as a meal for his “seafood” idea….
Pet Owner’s Observation: Pablo keeps swimming around his fish bowl in circles as if he’s begging for more food. Elsa seems indifferent to this…Elsa’s snail are acting weird, they keep trying to slowly leave the bowl. What the heck is going on with them?
Have a funny pet story? Leave it down below I’d love to hear it!
Pablo: I really miss my snail. The way he used to hang from the fish bowl upside-down. How he used to eat my left over crumbs from the bottom of my tank. I still that we should have a Viking Funeral…
Elsa: Welp looks like Pablo’s snail has kicked the bucket. It found the big snail shell in the sky. Its pushing daisies.Insert other euphemisms for death here. At least Pablo was kind and made a nice bedding for the snail. That is until he decided to light the snail on fire Viking style without thinking….
Pet Owner’s Observation: Looks like I’ll need to get Pablo another snail so that he won’t be lonely. Maybe Elsa would be generous enough to donate one of his snails to Pablo…Or not.
If you have been tuning into Pablo Thursdays then you may have been curious to know what they look like in real life. I present to you Pablo and Elsa in their natural habitat. Stay tune for more Pablo Thursdays!
Pablo: How did I get here again exactly? I remember being in a fish container at Pet smart…or was it Petco… And now I’m here in this huge plant filled bowl! With a snail and food deliveries by air! I wonder what animal was here in the before time…. Oh well, I want some more food. Hola senoritas! Tengo hambre y quiero la comida!
Elsa: Pablo is an idiot. Did I mention he’s an idiot? Anyways over hearing the owners apparently an aquatic puppy by the name of Dashy use to inhibit this useless counter space. Not entirely sure if its a dog…or a fish…I’m sure its nothing frightening
Meanwhile at the Pet Owner’s other house…
Pet Owner’s Observation: I don’t understand this, I bought this thing 33 Fish, 10 snails and a few shrimp and more than 3/4 of EVERYTHING is gone. Why don’t you get a turtle they said, it would be slow they said. At this rate she’s going to become Godzilla…
Dashy: The life of a turtle is not what it seems. Due to pop culture beliefs I am assumed to be slow, independent and boring. WELL, I’ll have you know that I am a home decorator and frequently move my assorted aquarium rocks during sleeping hours. I enjoy fine dinning such as snails or frog legs. And I am certainly not slow by any means. You take me out of this tank and I’ll show you how slow you all think I am.
Have a stubborn turtle who enjoys being outside their tank? You should get a turtle tracking device! As demonstrated in this meme you will never lose your turtle again.
Pablo Thursdays is not responsible for any lost turtles, damaged balloons or fingers nor sells this product.
Me llamo Pablo! This bowl is so roomy and OH! look I have a wonderful little plant. Oh! I have neighbors too? Why does that It get to have the lamp? Is it time to eat yet?
The nerve of my owners placing me inside this bread box of a fishbowl. I deserve to have the biggest bowl out of all of the Betas! That’s it…I shall go on a hunger strike until I get what I deserve! Why is Pablo so active…he must have an attention span disorder…
I…am King. The lamp only shines upon me.
Pet Owner’s Observation:
Pablo is incredibly active for a Beta… and seems to know the meaning of a full stomach. Elisa refuses to eat his pellets and hides behind his “No Fishing” sign. I could be mistaken…but I think Elisa has bowl-envy. It, seems to have a superiority complex. Why are all my pets either incredibly intelligent or incredibly stupid…
ABOUT PABLO THURSDAY’S
Pablo is, well you guessed it a fish. But not just any fish; Pablo is my pet Beta fish and Elsa (also a Beta) is my roommate’s fish. The third fish named “It” is an adult Beta. We have come to realize that our pets seem to have distinct personalities and as such we found it appropriate to create a web comic world for them to live in. These are the digital memoirs of our pet fish coming to you every Thursday. Leave some of your funniest pet moments in the comments below, I’d love to hear them!
