KUWAIT (KDKA) – A shop in Kuwait has been shut down over fishy practices.
Authorities say the market was guilty of putting googly eyes on fish to make them look fresh.
A picture making the rounds on social media tells the tale. One of the googly eyes slipped off, which revealed a more natural yellow eye underneath.
Never judge the freshness of fish by the googliness of their eyes. https://t.co/hW50lwpwCz

According to a BBC report, rival fish sellers responded to the incident by advertising their fresh fish “without cosmetics.”
