Hipster cruelty

I am very fond of bookends, but I'm only mildly tempted by these "Glass Half Bookends" from Urban Outfitters:

They look cool, and they're supposed to double as vases (although putting flowers in 'em might stain your books), but they're $58, and I'm concerned that the above image might encourage some dimwitted UO customer to actually use them as an aquarium. NOTE TO DIMWITTED UO CUSTOMERS: That is a terrible way to keep goldfish.

Harkens back to the days of goldfish platform shoes, in which people wore tall shoes that contained living goldfish. Fashion before compassion.

I had to hold myself back from publishing a whole list of all the reasons that's bad for your fish. I HATE it when people use pets as accessories...
