Nuclear family; nuclear fishin'...

Mrs Graph called me into the garden this morning. She was astonished (as was I) to find that the goldfish we have had in our garden pond for three summers - there are four of them; three orange and one mottled black - have produced offspring. Very small as yet, but nonetheless very firmly in existence and jetting about looking for fish food.

Mrs Graph's sister and her daughter were also present, and as excited as Mrs Graph to discover the two wee newcomers. "We are parents!" exclaimed the delighted Mrs Graph.

"Maybe there are more", suggested sister.

"Oh, I think two's enough for anybody", said Mrs Graph.
