Smells Fishy: Kuwait store caught sticking googly eyes on seafood

Confirmed: Googly eyes do not make dead fish look more alive.

And now, a store in Bayan, Kuwait has been shuttered by the Department of Commerce for affixing fake eyes to make their market fish “look fresh.”

That according to local online newspaper Bayankw.net.

The unmasking is making waves.

Because the interweb loves a good tall tale.

This was totally believable.
