A fable about perception and the emptiness of fame which suggests that at-homeness in oneself is the true reward. Blob the fish is excited. He feels it's finally his year to win the big competition after which he will finally become the ugliest animal in the world. But the popularity and fame that accompany Blob's win soon go to his head. And the loneliness of his new title goes to his heart. And of course fame never lasts forever.
