“It kind of hurt my feelings.” reports the shark. “I bit down and felt hard, tasteless plastic. When the two female humans fell in the water, I knew I had been punked.”

Usually humans are easy to identify with their thin useless fins, bulbous heads and funky smell, but these two were riding in seal decoys.

Shark community leaders are concerned that the human media will have a field day with this case of mistaken identity and warn fellow sharks to be on the look out for news helicopters and rednecks in fishing boats.
