Really? I won't click unless I know what the article is about.

I'm gonna bet 40below actually did submit this one and was just click-trolling, whoring for additional posts and headline votes.

I don't get it.

Would someone enlighten me?

NSW Fisheries staff were also helping water police look for the shark on the harbour this morning, he said.

Why, exactly? They'll probably kill this thing even though it was in its own habitat just trying to defend itself.

It was probably just a test-bite, finding out if the object in question was a edible and tasty.

40below is really on a troll tonight.

so much win...the headline and the skoora kith reference

/// And as he bore down on me, he paused as if to say, "What can I do? I'm a shark. I eat." And then he cut me in half, cut me right in half - my wife measured me, I'm exactly half my former length. But as he swam away with my lower extremeties dangling from his jaw, I swear to god he was crying.

Wonderful headline, A+++++++, would ASCII for more.
 
2009-02-11 06:20:44 AM  
Great headline subby.

Bonus FTA: "the person was reportedly attacked near HMAS Darwin in Woolloomooloo Bay."

I guess it's only appropriate to be trolling in fish threads. Still, the only way I see the dude's handiwork is when you guys quote him. Quit that.

Turned the tv on the other day
there she was in a full length gown
with a wave of her pretty hand
illuminated letters turned around
what they spelled was a mystery
what it meant I could not comprehend
should I buy a vowel and lose my lead
when will this madness ever end

Mr Dengate did know what the shark's next movements would be


sigh

In response, no doubt, to someone asking him if he did know.

gopher321: How is Skoora taking it?


Not very well.

Skoora, Skoora. Skoora, the gentle shark.
Skoora, Skoora. He's a killer with a broken heart.
Don't blame him! He blames himself.
Don't hate him! He hates himself.
Skoora, Skoora. Skoora the gentle shark.
