The Cardiff Shark

Apparently, we're not even safe on land. I knew it! I just knew it!

In what's being dubbed as the best spoof on the 3-year surfing statue in Cardiff-by-the-Sea yet, practical jokers surrounded the controversial monument with a paper mache shark. And while the surfer IS life sized, I certainly hope the shark is not. Otherwise we have much MUCH bigger problems.

And then, there's that attacking through the cement thing. Yeah, that too.

During a week when I needed a laugh, this was it. Awesome.

I won't - however - be watching "Shark Week" on Discovery Channel. Some things should be left to the imagination, I think. Then again, knowing me - my imagination can often be worse than the real thing.

Because, as demonstrated above, they can attack through concrete. As my friend Dave wrote on my FaceBook wall a while back, "If you're attacked by a shark while running along the beach, you've just got to tip your hat and say 'Well played, sir!'"

Well played, indeed.

BRAVO to the creators of Bruce going after the Cardiff Kook!
