Luckily, Abu Bakar was fishing with a friend who rushed him to the closest hospital, where it took six hours worth of surgery to get his intestines back in working order. See, shark teeth are razor sharp and make clean, precision cuts. I've heard that the pain from a shark bite doesn't set in right away. But a swordfish bill, I can tell you from holding one, is pretty blunt, very rough and very splintery. So I'd take a clean slice over a jab with an old wooden spoon any day.
