This fish is on a mission:
To give all children, even the physically challenged, the opportunity to snag his face with a hook and drag him from the waters that have nurtured him his whole life, into the stifling air, twitching and writhing, his gills unable to breathe the mocking oxygen that surrounds him.
And sure, when put that way, his mission seems almost… odd.
But look at him! When these kids catch a smile, they're really catching a smile! That hook is piercing the fish's actual smile!
He loves this stuff. It's his chance—finally!—to give back. People have been so good to him all these years. Leaving him in peace. Not, you know, killing him. He owes them.
And so he's only too happy to clamp down on the hook and give the kids the thrill of a lifetime!
Pull hard, kids. He'll be thrashing around a bit.
