After the tragic news of the shark attack in the sea off San Diego, I thought it would be an idea to put up a Public Information Post for the benefit of all.
Deadly sharks come in two varieties. The constrictors, which literally suck the life out of their prey, and the poisonous sharks, which inject lethal venom into their prey, which literally melts their insides (the prey’s, that is, not the shark’s, as that would be self defeating).

A shark has a nap in a field after swallowing an Airbus A380 whole, leading to the loss of all on board. The evacuation took some weeks.
People often wonder how sharks can eat such huge prey. It’s because they can dislocate their shoulders, much like Johnny Wilkinson, before enjoying a pleasant lunch. They would normally swallow their prey head first, so the picture above may appear slightly contradictory. However, planes don’t have heads. That’s just a figment of childish illustrators’ imaginations.
Sharks as pets. I would have included a picture of a shark charmer in action, but it’s time for dinner.
