Well, I know where we're *not* going on holiday this year

Feared "deadly shark" spotted off Cornwall
A species of shark thought to be to blame for hundreds of attacks on humans has been reported off the coast of Cornwall.
One sighting of an oceanic whitetip shark was made by a fisherman who said his wooden boat was rammed as he fished for mackerel.
The harbour master's office in St Ives confirmed that a second person on a separate boat had also reported seeing one of the sharks a mile off shore.
The species is blamed for many attacks on humans and brought terror to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh last year when a 'rogue' whitetip reportedly killed a German woman .
A spokesman for the harbour master in St Ives said they were not "100%" sure if the sharks spotted were oceanic whitetips and stressed that people should not blow the reports "out of all proportion".
The pelagic - or ocean-going - species is usually found far further south in deeper waters away from the coast, with Portugal being the usual northern-most reach of its habitat.

Merde and double merde with a good helping of merde on the side!!!! This is my worst nightmare come true. I leave you with my favourite hymn by Monty Python that I sing to myself to calm my nerves in times of overwelming shark terrors. Well I say hymn.....

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.
Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom.
He made their horrid wings.

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid--
Who made the spikey urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!

All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.

  2. it always amazes me how you know a huge volume of song lyrics...........and how you can learn them with only one or two listens. Your father's brain genes at work.
