DAILY MANIFESTO

Let's Watch a Goldfish Play Pokemon

Use Splash, darnit!

Because we have nothing better to do with this thing we call existence, why don't we join the other 23,000 people watching this Magikarp-looking goldfish unknowingly play Pokemon on Twitch? At the time of this writing, it's received more than half-million views and more than 12,000 favorites. Go humanity!

Let's watch the fish aimlessly swim around the bowl, looking at the flecks of unnatural light bounce off the surface of the glass and feeding off scraps of food every once in a while. Let's watch the many annoying Twitch users copy and paste BLUB in the comment section in different text colors. Or make comments that the fish has drowned.

Okay, but in all honesty, this is totally fun to watch. Just something so serenely nihilistic about this. I'm not even interested if the fish actually gets the protagonist out of the door. The implications of internet entertainment is astounding.

Screw it, let's just produce a site that's just a Twitch hub with only "____ Plays Pokemon" pages. Fill in the blank. Dogs! Cats! Babies in wombs! Floating ice cubes! Goldfish poop drops! The tears of orphans!
