Classroom gives goldfish Viking funeral
LOS ANGELES - The children at Papdale Primary School in Kirkwall constructed longships out of cereal boxes and egg crates as, according to the school blog, “the Vikings would have only sent the most beautiful ships to be burned for important people in their communities.”
The children also wrote down their fondest memories of the goldfish, and read them aloud as all the ships set sail -- accompanying the burning ship carrying the mascots.
Unfortunately the ship did fall over mid-burn, but we’re pretty sure Freddy and Bubbles made it to Valhalla anyhow.
And it’s still a lot more graceful than being flushed down a toilet.
