Lots of people have some kind of phobia revolving around a particular creature: Spiders, sharks, bats, snakes ... goldfish. Fine, maybe that last one isn't quite as common as the others. FINE, maybe I'm the only person I've ever met who has a goldfish phobia! But I have a feeling I won't be the sole (HA!) human being with this fishy fear for long! Nope, now that MONSTER GOLDFISH are invading Lake Tahoe, I wouldn't be surprised if people started squishing goldfish and keeping spiders in bowls as pets.
Although it is the whole "keeping as pets" thing that started what's sure to be remembered for centuries as the Monster Goldfish Apocalypse. Or, more accurately, the whole "dumping as pets" thing, officially known as "aquarium dumping."
