'Shark Carcass'

will be the new name of my band. Either that or 'BeebleBrox'

or 'Puss Ass Stink Willows' or 'DNA Fructose Cocktail'.

Hope about 'Shark Balls' or 'Shark CockShockers'

Shark CockShockers! That rocks!

Thanks man!

Hey, if that's the biggest news here then it ain't so bad to live in Austria. I'd much rather hear about practical jokes making national (international) news than say... Governmental screw-ups, or school shootings any day.

Yeah.California .March 3rd, 2007, three and a half
Minutes past midnight, Brittney Spears slammed into a salon around two or three. She ordered a haircut because she thought she was the bomb.....the pop princess bomb. She was going across the pacific coast highway, towards Hollywood. Barber wanted damn near eleven dollars to cut her sides. Her hair was lashed so tight to her skull she couldn't put a single one loose. Not one. And there was no scissors. None.She managed to shave her head in twelveminutes. Yes, that's all she took.We didn't see the first paparazzi till
we'd been in the salon about an hour.
thirteen of them near enough. In a
blue car. You measure that by judgin'
the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't
know... of course the barber knew...I
guess some officers knew... was the
Hair cutting mission had been so secret, no
advanced signals was sent. What Brittany
didn't know was that they wouldn't
even list us as overdue for a week.
Well, I didn't know that -- I wasn't
A PR person -- just as well perhaps.
So some of us were embarresed already --
in the salon -- just hangin' limp in
our seats. And Brittany's scalp already
bleedin'. And the three hundred or
so hairs on the bottom of the salon.
As the light went, the Paparazzi came
crusin'. We formed tight groups --
somewhat like squares in an old battle --
You know what I mean -- so that when
one come close, the man nearest would
yell and shout and pound the window
and sometimes it worked and the photographer
turned away, but other times that
paparazzi would seem to look right at a
man -- right into his eyes -- and in
spite of all shoutin' and poundin'
you'd hear that terrible high
screamin' and the flash would go
off, then churn up as they photograped
him. Then we'd reform our little
squares. By the first dawn the photographers
had taken more than a hundred pictures. Hard
for me to count but more than a
hundred. I don't know how manyphotographers.
Maybe a thousand. I do know they
averaged sixty pictures an hour. All kinds --
blues, makos, tigers. All kinds.
In the middle of the second day,
some of us started to go crazy from
the media. One fella cried out he
saw a news crew, another claimed he saw
a photographer, some started to drink
whiskey and choked on it, and some
left our little groups -- our little
squares -- and ran off alone lookin'
for paparazzi and the photographers always
took pictures of them them right away. It was the young fellas that did that --
the older ones stayed where they
was. That second day Oh my. On Thursday
morning I bumped up against a friend
of mine -- Herbie Robinson from
Reuters -- a good mate -- it
seemed he was asleep but when I
reached over to waken him, he bobbed
up and took my picture and I saw his camera upend
because he'd already used half his film and was trying to get some from the bag on his
waist. Well Chief, so it
went on - 'copters high overhead but
nobody noticin' us. Yes -film crews,photographers
, and all this goin' crazy and
dyin' of thirst. Noon the fifth day,
Mr. Hooper, on Ventura we swung
around and came in low. Yes. He did
that. Yes, that paparazzi saw us. And
early evenin', a big fat Pr come
down out of nowhere and began the
cleanup. That was when I was most
frightened of all -- while I was
waitin' for my turn for an Interview. Just two and a
half hours short of five days and
five nights when they got Brittnay and
took upstate . Eleven hundred hairs off head . Yeah.two thousand and seven . March the
Anyway,some people thought she was still the bomb.

Farking Under The Influence = bad. And if you previewed that and still hit the add button, that's a stabbing.

Google up Bull Sharks. They are large, known to kill humans and are one of few fish that can do fine in salt or fresh water. They have been found in the Mississippi River as far north as Illinois.

A few years ago some pranksters put live pirahnas in an outlet creek in Island Park, ID. They ate a few cows, kept people from wading through the water, then winter killed them. Now that's comedy. The Austrian guy was pretty funny, too.

Alive or dead, they're just water breathing death tubes.

Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll drag this bird out of the river for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycocks. This shark, weighs a ton. No shakin', no tenderizin', but still really heavy. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. It probably smells like hell by now.
