The highlight (for me) of the always-dull Spring Festival Gala Show on Chinese New Year's Eve - the most watched annual TV show in the world - was a Chinese magician who made six goldfish swim in synchronised patterns. But there's been a bit of controversy since, with animal rights groups assuming he must have force-fed the fish with magnets and controlled them from underneath. The magician has hit back, saying that any magnets in the fish would have simply pulled them all together into a big fishy ball (I'd pay to see that)! Well, however he did it, it's rare to see a unique magic trick these days, so good on him for thinking it up. And if you're going to abuse animals for entertainment, he chose the right country to debut his performance!
