Sick vandalism. That is a deliberate mutilation of a public service message. Now I want those little paint-happy bastards caught and hung up by their Buster Browns!

I'm more worried about bull sharks. They are VERY aggressive and are in the waist deep water that I usually wadefish in....like this one.

Really?

Great white sharks?

Really?

BS.

Unless you can prove that they were of exceptional size, they're not "great." The species Carcharodon carcharias is the "white shark;" there is no such species as the "great white shark."

Are you referring to the shark, or the two guys who caught it?

This is why I always swim with a hachet clenched in my teeth. One of those bastards tries to bite me and I'll chop off its fin.

After the mess they created in Rhode Island you would think they'd be banned from appearing anywhere in New England.

Yeah.... fark that. I will never go swimming in the ocean. My place on the food chain drops significantly, and unless I have some goddamn mermaids with goddamn tridents killing off goddamn great whites or whatever the fark else wants to eat me, I'm staying on terra firma. If a shark wants to eat me, it can come get me on my own turf.

For those going to Cape Cod, this isn't just "hey, I'll just farking stay out of the ocean, or stay where water is only up to my goddamn waist". Fark you. They will come and farking eat you. And these farkers are estimated to be up to 20ft long.

Yeah, that's right, it's a goddamn shark in a goddamn POND. WTF???? Fark that.

Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into her side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte. We'd just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes.

Didn't see the first shark for about a half-hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that in the water, Chief? You can tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know, was that our bomb mission was so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin' by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the infantry squares in the old calendars like the Battle of Waterloo and the idea was the shark come to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and sometimes that shark he go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away.

Sometimes that shark looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all your poundin' and your hollerin' those sharks come in and... they rip you to pieces.

You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks there were, maybe a thousand. I do know how many men, they averaged six an hour. Thursday mornin', Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boson's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water, he was like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist.

At noon on the fifth day, a Lockheed Ventura swung in low and he spotted us, a young pilot, lot younger than Mr. Hooper here, anyway he spotted us and a few hours later a big ol' fat PBY come down and started to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened. Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went into the water. 316 men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.

Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

That shark went up a decent sized estuary and was actually in an area not really populated by humans.

Dont' want to get bitten? Don't swim with the seals.

mb if they'd stop overfishing, the sharks wouldn't have to move into new areas in search of food.

Says who? Its a common name, not a scientific name. There's no central authority on common names, its just names people use to identify the shark. Since a large number of people call them Great Whites, it becomes a legit common name just through use.
