Anthony Jeselnik shared a story about his pet turtle on his Netflix special.
When I was a little kid, I had a pet turtle. Tiny little turtle. Kept him in an aquarium. One summer I went away to camp. While I was gone at camp the turtle died. When I got home, my dad lied to me. He said, “Anthony, your turtle is alive and well. It just went to go live with your mother.” I believed that until a couple days later. I was digging around in the backyard … and found my mom’s body. Worst day of my life. I loved that turtle.
