In a recent viral TikTok, an Indonesian woman can be seen cooking her husband’s expensive pet fish to protest against his laziness.
A wife’s frustration: In the video posted on Oct. 8, TikTok user Mia Kurniawan (@miakurniawan01) is seen scaling and seasoning the arowana fish, which can go for as much as $300,000, before deep-frying it to teach her husband a lesson.
According to AsiaOne, Kurniawan wrote in an accompanying text, “My husband kept promising to clean the aquarium after I told him to. I thought it would be delicious if I fried it.”
“Already cooked and ready to eat,” she declares, showing the cooked fish. She ends the video by making a heart gesture with her thumb and index finger.
In her following TikTok videos created in response to comments from netizens, Kurniawan’s husband forgave her and is looking to buy a new pet arowana.
Typically, I'm not a huge fan of fish tanks. They stink like hell and there's no way you can get the enjoyment out of it that equals the amount of work. I mean, I could see having a Duece Bigalow type of fish tank with sharks and all that shit in it because then you would be rich enough to pay someone else to maintain it. That would be a good little side hustle, right? There's all those Poop 911 places that come and pick your dog and your shit up from the yard, why not have a mobile fish cleaning service?
Anyway, I was kinda not impressed with this story when I saw the headline. Woman cooks pet fish. Big deal. It's protein. Fry it up. HOWEVER comma pause for effect, that fish is god damn beautiful. Look at the way its scales shined. I bet when the light hits the scales they twinkled and glistened like no other fish in the sea. You fry Larry and I don't give a fuck. That fish was a work of damn art and should have been valued as such.
That being said, the most surprising aspect of this story is that the husband forgave the wife. It's not just that she friend up your pet and made you eat it, it's that she also dumped 300k down the ole drain and flushed it like a normal person would with a pet fish. How do you move on from a 300k loss? Money is the root of so many marital issues. You toss a dead loved one on top of the losses sheet and you'd be mad for months. At least I would. I'll never eat Baby Dale Woohoo and that's a fucking promise.
