There are so many uses for "Googly eyes," those plastic stick-on things people use for arts and crafts, but this is the best. 

A supermarket in Kuwait got shut down the other day after someone caught them sticking googly eyes on DEAD FISH in their seafood section to make them look fresher, BCC reports

Someone posted two photos of it . . . one of a fish with a googly eye covering its real eye, and one where it fell off. 

And it DOES kind of work, because they sort of look like fish eyes anyway.

It's not clear if the store was shut down for scamming people, or if it was a food safety thing. 

By the way, there's actually a term now for sticking them on random objects.  It's called ”eyebombing!”
