Merwin: Shark Candy
By John Merwin & Joe Cermele
This is just incredible. Here's a video of an encounter between some kayak fishermen and a very large great white shark off the coast of Australia. It was originally posted by BBC News on Sunday. As a kayak angler myself--sometimes in saltwater--it just scares the bejesus out of me.
It also reminds me of a very sick and very old joke. Why do sharks like kayakers? Because they're crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Funny, I suppose, unless you're a kayaker like these guys!
