In both stories, they included wish granting fish, an important moral that is learned, and both of the main characters feared something. In “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” there was “a deep-sea goldfish” that was owned by Sergei, which was able to grant three wishes, and Sergei had used those wishes for unselfish reasons. The first wish was “...used up when they discovered a cancer in his sister.” The second wish “Sergei used up five years ago, on Sveta's boy...it wasn't for Sveta that he'd done it, that he'd wished his wish purely for the boy.” The final wish was then used to save the boy that he had killed on accident. His wishes were used for good purposes and did what was right, even if it cost him and even if he feared he was going to lose his magical goldfish. Unlike “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?”, in the story “The Fisherman and His Wife” the wishes from the “enchanted prince” flounder was used for greed and power.

Just to be safe, the little fish decides to tell the reader where he is going to hide.

Though he did express his feelings towards this event, it presumably wasn't the perception Gourmet Magazine was expecting. Blinded by the heavy amounts of sarcasm, they published it anyways. Consider the Lobster dives into the disreputable actions of people cooking and consuming lobster. Anyone who reads David Foster Wallace’s Consider the Lobster will recognize his display of emotional appeal, sarcastic tone, and irony that highlights a controversy of American beliefs of the ethicality of eating lobster.
18 The logic of this (preference suffering) relation may be easi-est to see in the negative case.” (Wallace 64) he expresses opinions of his imagery and personification of these creatures. His “expression of preference” in regards to the lobsters “expression of preference” is personifying the lobster to a being in which he is trying to protect. At this rate lobsters will be standing on two legs and holding strike signs. He is trying to prove his argument in a matter of appealing to our emotions and trying to envelope the same feelings he has towards these creatures. What cows, chicken, pork, offer to society is on a whole other level than what lobsters give to us and with the MLF it’s a one a year
