故事描述一個滿腹好奇的少女來到水族館參觀,卻遇到一位不斷抱怨的導覽員。導覽員像個自走砲,回憶水族館恢宏的過往、嘲笑海洋生物的尷尬與困窘,既咒罵館長、又感嘆遊客不畏懼鯊魚。他絲毫不願意認真導覽。這座過往是皇宮的水族館,如今只剩下一隻當年的鯊魚,因此導覽員直白地告訴少女這裡並沒有什麼好參觀。

The story tells of a lady who went to the aquarium full of curiosity, only to meet a tour guide who was continually complaining. The tour guide just barreled on like a freight train, reminiscing about the aquarium’s glory days, making fun of how awkward and embarrassing the sea life is, then cursing the head of the aquarium and lamenting that the tourists weren’t afraid of the shark. The tour guide seemed to be completely uninterested in seriously guiding tours. At one time, this had been the royal palace aquarium; now, there was only a single shark. That’s why the tour guide straight out told the lady there was nothing good to see here.
