Eau Claire ‘fish family’ becomes Internet sensation

EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) – Talk about a Kodak moment. A picture of brothers new to Eau Claire is making its way around the World Wide Web – for a fishy reason.

You’ve heard of sticking your foot in your mouth, but what about a fish?

Well, one little Eau Claire boy sure knows how to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

The boy’s mother, Marika Daniels, told WQOW TV they recently moved to Eau Claire from Brookings, South Dakota.

During the family’s final weeks in South Dakota, they stopped at the children’s museum, which has a fishing pond for the kiddos.

Daniels said as she went to take a picture of the proud fisherman she never even realized her youngest, Landon, 18 months, had put the fish in his mouth because she was trying to get Levi, 4, and Logan 3, to look at the camera.

She said it wasn’t until she was looking back at the picture that she realized Landon’s humorous act.

The Internet did notice, however, and the picture was turned into a meme – “Every family has that one kid.”

Daniels believes the meme has more than 500,000 shares on Facebook.
