Headline was trying too hard... let's pick a joke and stick with it, folks!!

Great headline, smitty.
2007-02-08 09:35:26 PM  
I, for one, enjoyed the literary reference.

Natalie Wood sure was hot back then.

God bless Officer Krupke.
2007-02-08 09:35:28 PM  
Maybe officer Krupski can shoo them away.
2007-02-08 09:36:44 PM

Oh gawd, now the news channels will be running 3 hours of shark news a day, 12 hours of Anna Nicole Smith and 4 hours of batshiat crazy female astronauts.

I'd hit it.

/Not the shark.

For a while now, I've kind of wanted to get a whole bunch of people together and make a Sharks vrs. Jets style danceoff, but set to Mountain a-Gogo Two from Naruto, and with pirates vrs. ninja.

The sad part is, at a San Francisco college, if I had the neccessary guts, choreography skill, and cameras etc., I could probably find people willing to do it.

Oh my, lets all freek out and run into the water in hysteria, then flop around like wounded fish, then label all sharks as rabid killers.
2007-02-08 09:49:49 PM  
Shark story without ASCII? I call shenanigans...

FTFA: Lifeguards say the shark invasion happens a few times a year, often in March.

The sharks pass by every spring while migrating to their summer homes up North.

So, this happens every year, and lifeguards warn swimmers about it every year>, no one gets attacked, and this two-bit article gets greenlit? I'm with ya, Crunchy Frog.

How'd all those sharks get tipped off that Anna Nicole Smith was being buried at sea?

Maybe her lawyer told them...

Are they looking for shrimp?
2007-02-08 10:07:56 PM  
Fresh dead meat in Florida today, they are just going to buffet.

OOhhhhhh my GOoooooddddd, SHarks????? In the Ocean????

There have been "hundreds" of sharks off of Florida for the past 2 million years.

Don't like?
Don't go....

/Fat ass bastards....

yeap...spring break is almost upon ringing the dinner bell for the sharks

Who's up for some surf and turf?

I saw a perfect Fark shark story about 10 years ago on Hollywood Beach. Some guy comes scampering out of the water with a 2-3 ft nurse shark clamped onto his leg. The guy is understandably screaming bloody murder, and bleeding like a stuck pig.

One of Broward County's finest takes charge of the situation. He unholsters his glock and drills three shots into this thing. No luck: The shark's invoking his 9/10's possession rule. The cop keeps blasting away at this thing until half the crowd is horrified, and the other half is laughing their collective asses off.

He had to give it up cause he looked like an idiot. He and some folks got a tire iron and pried the fish from the guy's leg. That guy lost a chunk of his calf that day.

joenobody - pretty tasteless, even for fark.
Come on, she was just a workin' girl, tryin' to get ahead.

I never thought it was safe to go into the water.

dziban: Check out this weird pic I came up with.

Thanks for the next batch of nightmares.
2007-02-08 10:27:52 PM  
I have to admit shooting the shark the first few times isn't a bad idea. I'd kill it and then use my nightstick to pry it off if I was a cop. You don't want that sucker snapping about as you are prying it off.
2007-02-08 10:32:31 PM  
For fark's sake.

The last time they did this retarded-ass story was the summer of 2001. I actually heard some witless talking head breathlessly exclaim: "It's almost as if they're massing - for some kind of attack!!" I spent about 15 minutes considering whether suicide or homocide was the better option.

That summer, any shark, anywhere in the world, was worthy of a worldwide panic. Then 9/11 happened. I thought: at least this is the end of the retarded shark stories.

Everything old is new again, I guess.

But biatch, it, still ain't news.
2007-02-08 10:33:47 PM  
Thanks for the headline.
I feel much more teh gheyer for it.

Unfortunately for me West Side Story was one of my mom's favorites so I got overexposed to teh ghey.

You yell "Barracuda" and everybody says, "huh, what?" You yell "Shark", and we've got a panic on our hands on the 4th of July

Since when is WEST SIDE STORY literary? Or literature?
