Surprisingly, a new study says you’re not alone, but you’re also not being all together prudent. No matter how cute and cuddly they appear, Do Not Grab A Shark.
Grab Sharks, Get Bit
People are grabbing sharks more and more. Is this simply a passing fad, or is it an increasing trend for the casual beach goer? Guy Sharky, head of the Ocean Life Is Cuddly action group, had this to say about the widespread and growing problem.
“Yes, sharks are insanely beautiful. They’re unbelievably adorable. We all know the power of the shark. They’re irresistible to reaching down and grabbing them. Most people with real willpower in all other areas find themselves powerless to not grab, hug or cuddle a shark. But if you do, know this; you may get your dumb ass bit. Yes, believe it or not, a shark will bite those who grab them. You may find your hand coming back to you a bloody stump. Wanna be known as stumpy the rest of your life? This is the shocking data we’re finding from a new, breakthrough study.”
