A fishmonger at a market in Kuwait thought it would be a brilliant idea to peddle not-so fresh fish to customers by devising a trick.

But most of the eagle-eyed customers were far too keen to get duped.


The merchant slapped plastic googly eyes over the yellowed eyeballs of the "fresh" fish on display in the hopes of deceiving casual customer into buying them. The Arabic language newspaper Al Bayan from the United Arab Emirates posted a picture of one of the googly-eyed fish.

In a juxtaposed photo, one of the plastic eyes slid off the head of the slimy carcass to reveal the true state of its decomposition.

People were instantly aware of something fishy going on. The fish store was shut down by Kuwait's Ministry of Commerce.

Twitter users were dumbfounded over the ridiculous tactic to fool customers.

But naturally, users had a field day with plenty of fish puns.



They had eyes on the situation.




Luke Skywalker is looking pretty fresh too.

A professional gave his diagnosis.

People shared their stories after Redditor Renzot56 asked the online community,

"Has anyone here ever actually called into one of the FBI rewards for information on criminals and won the money?"

Often, high school is where students become rebellious. They're learning about themselves, they're testing boundaries, and they realizing that they can break the rules and sometimes get away with it.

Sometimes they're doing it to mess with a teacher who's treating students unfairly, sometimes they're doing it because they're standing up for the very little autonomy we afford kids in the first place.

Redditor CloudWoww wanted to know about those moments that are unforgettable defiance of authority.
