(Cape Cod Times)   After last summer's several shark sightings and even a few close encounters on Cape Cod, one town invokes the "No such thing as bad press" theory in the design of this year's beach permit   (capecodonline.com) divider line 11

Y'all know me. Know how I entertain meself.  I'll post on Fark for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad trolls. Not like going down to Reddit and trolling bronies. These Farkers, swallow you whole. Little complainin', little reportin', out you go. And we gotta do it quick,get on the first page of comments, get all those Jaws references in. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my sanity a lot more than spentmiles or Pocket Ninja, chief. I'll post it for free, but I'll troll, and troll hard, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to be a TotalFarker, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on FarkLite the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many trolls on this website. 1 Subscription for TotalFark by myself. For that you get the post, a pic, the whole damn thing.

FullMetalPanda: From the article..

This summer's town beach sticker will feature a smiling, friendly-looking shark, thanks to the unanimous approval of the town beach commission.

But Kelly Clark, director of the town's recreation and beach department, worries that it gives the impression that the town isn't taking sharks seriously.
When Clark expressed her opinion about the stickers at a Feb. 26 selectmen's meeting, two board members also said they were worried about the repercussions from the public of using the smiling shark, according to a live stream of the meeting. But by the end of the discussion, the board basically told Clark to lighten up.

Sounds like if the shark was grumpy they'd be Ok with it.

In lieu of a SlowClap.gif, I present:

"Didn't see the first Farker for about a half-hour. Tat'dGreaser. 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, Farkers 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 Farker 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 Farker 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 snarks 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 Farkers come in and... they rip you to pieces."
