Why Aren't We Talking About Shark Attacks?

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Why Aren't We Talking About Shark Attacks?

Postby Prof. Wagstaff » Wed Jun 29, 2005 12:10 pm

What can Americans do to curb the recent "wave" (that's funny on so many levels) of shark attacks?
Shouldn't we be outraged?
Shouldn't we be allocating funds to stop this dreaded killer?
What if it had been your kid?
Shouldn't we take this fight to the sharks, instead of waiting offshore for their inevitable attacks?
Did you know that most liberals are shark-lovers? They actually want to protect these swimming evils!
Why are the news networks devoting less than most of their newscasts to these horrific events?
When will the Federal Government provide us with a clear-cut shark policy, detailing both what to do in case of a shark attack (should I keep some duct tape in my swimming trunks, just in case?) and what plans they have for a swift victory over these fishy fiends?

THE SHARKS HAVE MADE THEIR INTENTIONS CLEAR! WE MUST DEFEND OURSELVES!

Is there any way the sharks can eat some Republicans in government and godbangers?

That would make me more interested in the story.

Sorry, but the sharks just don't have the type of oil we need. . . they are kind of like N. Korea . . .

How can you even compare the two?
The sharks are biting off innocent people's limbs and then broadcasting it for the world to see!

I suppose you're one of those "Blame America Firsters" who thinks we have it coming for polluting the oceans, disturbing their homes with our boat traffic and cutting off their fins for soup. It's not the same. They are attacking our children. They should be treated as enemy combatants and shipped to Sea World-Cuba.

I am a shark, and I think children are yummy. Especially with a nice red wine.

I think these shark "attacks" seem a little fishy to me. Is it really just a coincident that the children were [italic][bold]in the water[/bold][/italic] when the "attack" occured? Why haven't there been any shark attacks on shore if they are really a threat? How do we know that the kids didn't just slip into the shark's mouth? Or maybe they were pushed by parents who need to distract the family away from their poor handling of the household's economy? We don't even know if there really are teeth of mass destruction--what if these are dolphins (cia operatives) posing as sharks?

It just goes to show that we can't protect our borders. Maybe we can get some of those goons that went down to Arizona to vacation in Florida.

Prof. Wagstaff wrote:Shouldn't we be outraged?


We are! We assumed we were at the top of the food chain. We're Americans, goddamn it!

Prof. Wagstaff wrote:Shouldn't we be allocating funds to stop this dreaded killer?


Isn't Tom Delay set to head back to the private sector? Isn't his background in pest control?

Prof. Wagstaff wrote:What if it had been your kid?!


I'd sue Jeb Bush.

Prof. Wagstaff wrote:Shouldn't we take this fight to the sharks, instead of waiting offshore for their inevitable attacks?


Do armored humvees float?

I always knew they hated America. I bet the guy in the shark suit in Jaws was French.

Prof. Wagstaff wrote:Why are the news networks devoting less than most of their newscasts to these horrific events?


Because they hate America. Can you say "liberal media?"

As soon as they are done with the post-Saddam-toppling plan for Iraq....

Is it still legal to own a harpoon? It's only a matter of time before they show up in Lake Mendota...

I like it.

I heard the CIA is saving landsharks specifically to unleash on the ghettos.

Well, that just sounds like nutty conspiracy talk...

Not if those damn liberal environmentalist lefty nutjobs get their way!
