After being ostracized for committing the cardinal sin of contravening SAKKS rule 74/85B7C in regard to the stocking limits of my Koi pond I am now forced to make a decision in who stay and who might have to go.
As a result I hereby request your help in drawing up the list of undesirables in my overstocked Koi pond.
Participation is voluntary and open to all categories of Koi enthusiasts irrespective of age, gender, religion, expert status etc. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.
As a matter of cause each of you will consider different aspects e.g. show quality, nice looking, totally disgusting good pond fish etc. When making your call please note that I have at this stage no intention to show any of these boys and/or girls. These are my fish and each has a history of varying length and experiences. I might share their past and lineage with you after you made your judgement and I have scrutinised the pole results.
Please rank each of them in sequence on the criteria of 1 being most undesirable and 14 being least undesirable (14 is the number of Koi involved). Elaboration and reasoning will be appreciated.
Your classification will also be of interest.
Please enlighten me; how do you measure a Koi, from nose to tip of tail or what?
In no particular order, here they are:
1 San as in Japanese or a womanís name.
2 Michael he is a hairdresser.
3 Stefanus never get out just hang around at home and will not keep still at a photo shoot.
4 Diana paints her lips for James.
5 Johannes I donít know his agenda but he was involved in the plumbing inspection with Mavis.
6 Alice in charge of maintenance. It may be a misconception that this classification originated from Malta refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltese_(dog)
7 Hendrik hangs around clubs and pubs.
8 Mavis since this photo was taken she damage her tailfin while inspecting the plumbing with Johannes
9 James he has a crush on Diana and I suspect they might have something going.
10 Sally classification Doitsu Weimaraner learn more of this Koi here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weimaraner
11 Maria hangs out with Beryl in coffee shops.
12 Matilda chief gastronomy connoisseur.
13 Beryl the other coffee shop patron.
14 Slipper very fierce and will be the executioner if need be.
Now people please get to it! Exercise your democratic right to vote.
Please act swiftly as I am facing an extended imprisonment in the SAKKS gaol!
This is serious stuff as you have a say in the future of a selection of Koi.
