Fandango’s Provocative Question #146


For his provocative question this week Fandango asks

In your opinion, is it better to be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond? Or perhaps a big fish in a big pond? Why do you feel that way?

Brain overload. (It doesn’t take much. LOL)
Here’s the thought process:
Am I the fish?
No, this is about fish being fish. The question doesn’t ask, if I’d rather be a big or little fish? It says which is it better to be on a “fish scale”? Pun intended.
Okay… then being a big fish in a big pond is the best survival scenario.
More food, fewer problems from predators because there are more places to hide and a likely more available number of mating opportunities to make baby fishes (fry).

If this question was intended to be a metaphor for something else, my pond doesn’t run that deep or perhaps I’m too shallow. You decide. 🙂


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.
