“In a scene reminiscent of the film Jaws, home video taken at Seaside Park Beach in the US state of New Jersey shows a shark causing a furor by coming ashore briefly before turning away and returning to open seas.”

Me: I love how the screaming gets loudest when he beaches himself. Like that’s the time to worry!

Scott: Heh.
You never know. He might decide to grow legs.
He could.
He’s a shark.

  1. “just behind the reef
    are the big white teeth
    of the sharks that can swim on the land!”

  2. My husband just finished reading Close to Shore about the New Jersey shark attacks in the early 1900s which are what inspired the author of JAWS. So, it sounds remarkably like conversations we’ve had before he goes to work, too.

  3. Land shark! EEEEEEEEEE! *glomp*

  4. This won’t make as much sense now as it did when it came to me…but on a winter’s evening in the mountains last year after hours of talk and firelight, a tiny bit of whiskey and a discussion (whose subject I can’t remember now), I made the pronouncement that “It all comes down to sharks.”

    It seemed wonderfully wise at the time, and was met with much appreciation…but in the clear light of day, I am not so sure that *everything* comes down to sharks. What do you think?
