Welcome to a world where innocent goldfish die because of compact cars, children eat melted rubber spatulas, and nurses tell a woman to never give blood again just because she passed out twice and tossed her sugar cookies all over the bloodmobile.
Welcome to my world.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where did you get the name “Roadkill Goldfish?”
The name comes from the memory of a very valiant little fish who died because of the durability of Michelin tires. I was carrying my goldfish’s bowl down a flight of stairs when I tripped and set the bowl sailing into a parking lot. A compact car ran over my beloved He-Fish.
The film version of He-Fish’s demise would probably be titled “Grinding Nemo” or “20,000 Leagues Under the Street.” You can learn more about my beloved carp in my very first post.
