First January Jones and now Jessica Alba, will no Hollywood bombshell disavow sharks? For her part, Alba was recently involved in an incident in Oklahoma City where scary and terrible posters of great white sharks where plastered all over town.
In a sign of hope, Alba has apologized for her involvement:
“I got involved in something I should have had no part of. I realize that I should have used better judgment and I regret not thinking things through before I made a spontaneous and ill-advised decision to let myself get involved with the people behind this campaign. I sincerely apologize to the citizens of Oklahoma City and to the United Way for my involvement in this incident.”
I’ll let you decide if she’s gone far enough.
This 30-ft long shark appears to be a vegetarian, but just to be safe, I’ve crossed Cornwall off the ‘Places I’d go on vacation’ list. Also on this list: Every city mentioned in this article and San Jose, whose hockey team needs a new.
(As mentioned yesterday, this is Shark Week on Unlikely Words. It will last until the Discovery Channel asks us to change the name or the end of the week.)
“In experiments carried out in the US some varieties of shark allowed themselves to be picked from the water and cuddled.” It takes all kinds of people, it’s true, but it shouldn’t take the type of people that want to cuddle sharks. In this article they think they’ve found some sharks that can be trained. I don’t know how often I have to say this, but please, let’s NOT train sharks. Didn’t any of you see Deep Blue Sea?
(Am I going to get sued if I call this week Shark Week? I’ll let you know! Stop in everyday for tons of derisive sharksnark culminating at the end of the week with a 2 part interview with a shark expert.)
