They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks – but what about a old fish? Urban Outfitters is currently selling a tongue-in-cheek “Fish School Kit” ($45), designed to train fish to play basketball, fetch, the limbo and more. While these underwater creatures may not be able to respond to your teachings the way a dog or cat would, an owner can dream, right? The kit comes with the “Fish School Platform” that includes 20 plastic accessories – such as a soccer ball, tunnels and hoops – a feeding wand and an instructional DVD and manual. Follow the directions, and things should go just swimmingly.
