Fisheye Rumble in the Pond Chapter 57: Meeting # 9: Winnie the View and his Lomographic Friends

Winnie is the child of Wide-angle Willie and Plug-in Peggy. Given this parentage, it ain’t a surprise that this lil’ fella is used to the party-life and always a welcome guest at any goldfish bash. You’d better be prepared, as this little prankster is always ready to tell one of his jokes.

“Hello, I am Winnie! Oh, a good one comes to my mind: what did the boy octopus say to the girl octopus? I wanna hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand! No wait, this one’s even better: what’s the favourite food of the Tsar of Russia? Tsardines! Oh boy…did I tell you about my dad? You know, I’ve got the same sparkling 170-degree wide-angle view as my old pops, only that I’m smaller. I can easily hide in the bushes and spy on lovers or get into the sea-horse hippodrome without paying. Oh, and I never get sentenced for that – as I’m still a kid, all the grown-ups tolerate my behavior and even think I’m that cute. Y’know what that means? As my mum is out every night, there’s nothing holding back my close-up and wide-angle peeping onto everything that she likes to hide from me: secret speed dates, late night porkfests, salmon stripteases, and seaweed smoke-ins! Wa-hey!”
