Scene: A desert tortoise falls into the koi pond. Some koi fish watch the tortoise sink.

Koi #1: Do we eat it?
Koi #2: It’s an awfully big pellet…
Koi #3: Is it moving?
Koi #1: Does our food normally move?
Koi #3: I think it’s sinking.
Koi #2: Our food doesn’t normally sink.
Koi #1: Should we eat it anyway?
Koi #3: I don’t know. Is it time for food?
Koi #1: I’m not sure. I didn’t see the girl who normally gives us our food.
Koi #2: Do you think it’s a trick?
Koi #1: Maybe it’s a cat!
Koi #3: Should we swim away?

Koi #1: Maybe it’s really a big pellet.
Koi #3: Our pellets float.
Koi #1: It’s so big that it sinks.
Koi #2: I still think it’s a trap.
Koi #1: I’m so confused.
