Shark Bites Lawyer

No joke!  It’s what Corky St. Clair would call “ironical.” 

In all seriousness, I’m glad the guy is OK and will not lose his leg—getting eaten by an animal has to be the worst way to go, in my opinion.   I’m betting that this father of four, not to mention his wife and kids, are feeling pretty grateful right now that the shark didn’t like the taste of what he bit into (sharks can only taste something by biting it, and they don’t particularly like the taste of humans, but that investigatory bite is often enough to kill!).

I have to give the victim props for his take on the event:  “It’s their environment. We’re visitors to it. . .All we can do is try not to look like food.”  Right on, man! 

It burns me up when people get angry at animals for being animals, especially when their already-limited habitats are encroached upon.  The way I see it, if you want to bottle-ass around in the woods or ocean then go right ahead and do so.  But don’t get all mad when the laws of nature don’t suspend themselves for your little vacation.

  1. Good points and good for him. I’m glad he won’t be suing the shark.

  2. Neil,

    Don’t give him ideas, please.
