New Koi Fish Variety - Irish First Minister

Irish First Minister was feeling sorry for neglecting his Koi pond when he decided to help his colorful carps out by cleaning some of the algae off of the sides. He lost his footing and tumbled into the pond. According to his twitter feed, his cries for help (the pond edges were almost too slippery to climb) were met with laugher and inspections of his life insurance policy. No news yet on how the Koi fish liked their new pond mate.


Taiwanese Firefighters Rescue Trapped Koi

A Taiwanese Koi hobbyist's two foot long Koi became trapped behind a boulder in her Koi pond. She called the Tainan City fire department, who showed up and were able to free the Koi after smashing the boulder apart. The Koi was brought to a local aquarium to receive veterinary care for the injuries it sustained during the ordeal. This wasn't the Koi fish's only brush with death, it survived Typhoon Morakot in 2009, which wiped out all of the other Koi in the pond.

A Three year old sells Koi painting for $500.00

A three year old name Osmar Pete Hernandez sold a Koi painting that he made when he was only a toddler.  A toddler art connoisseur nabbed the piece for a cool $500.00.  The painting entitled "The Koi" can be viewed here.  Even though "The Koi" fetched a decent price, it isn't his most expensive painting available.  That title goes to a painting known as "Universal Faces", which is worth $2,500.00.

Would you buy a painting that cost that much from someone who isn't even in preschool yet?
