Jaws for thought

"On a scale of one to ten," the good people at The Project ask of random members of the public, "how would you rate the shark"? In the process they neglect to say what the scale  measures exactly, whether one is 'bad' and ten is 'good', and five is 'pink frilly knickers', or just about anything really. On a scale of one to ten, why would they bother? Given a choice of a) for yes, b) for no, and c) for indifferent, what is the name of the person who came up with this idea? And if it came to a fight between Dave Hughes and Carrie Bickmore, how many fingers am I holding up? These, and other crucial questions, will be answered in upcoming episodes of The Project.

Anyway, it's National Shark Week, in which we all gather together to celebrate the nation. Or sharks. Or weeks. Or something like that. Anyway, here's my contribution:


Hark! Hark! The shark! In water swims
Midst lots and lots of bloodied limbs.

I expect it'll be released as a five act opera shortly.

UPDATE! - Also for our bemusement, Carrie Bickmore claims in that linked item that the greatest fear of people is being attacked by a shark. I have to say that shark attack is not something that I have ever worried about, ever.
