Shivers – Shark Week

09 Jul

Oh shivers!  This week it has been Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.  We have watched a lot of the shows.  Shows that highlighted when sharks attack.  Shows that highlight guys/gals going down in the ocean in shark cages feeding sharks by hand.  Shows that highlighted HUGE sharks.  Shows that highlight sharks that bit people and showed the bites – shivers.

Then if that wasn’t bad enough, mom got a wild hair over the long weekend and decided to watch ALL of the Jaws movies.  Really mom?  Not just the original Jaws with “We’re going to need a bigger boat”, but all of them – Jaws 2, Jaws 3 and then Jaws Revenge.  Shakes piggy head.  Snorts – but us anipals stood by her side and watched with her.  Double evil snorts – I even called Houdini Shark Bait.  Now *that* was funny.

After this week of watching all of these shows, I had a dream about surfing.  It was a nightmare!   There is no way this little oinker is going anywhere near the beach.  Heck, I may even rethink getting in my piggy pool or the bathtub for that matter!

Have you watched any of these shows on television?  Any favorites? Any experiences of seeing sharks in real life?  Have you seen them at the beach?

Mom and dad said they saw one at Tybee Island, Georgia a couple of  years ago.  Shivers – I’m glad it was them and not me.  I don’t wanna be shark bait.

    I remembered how we kids chased each other in the pool singing the Jaws theme and actually freaking out…

    my mom was a fan of the shark movies and she loved Roy Schneider…and now she offered my dad a “seafood day” with all movies including tasty food.. he said UGH!… but hey, I’m in… food in my bowl and food in tv… that’s a double deal…. thanks for a fabulous idea, bro!… bet after all that movies she will avoid the bathroom and anything with water for weeks :o)

      Snorts. I know what you mean brother. I’m avoiding the bathtub for a while – and even my piggy pool outside. You just never know what might happen, right? XOXO – Bacon

    I still get shivers and gasp whenever I hear the theme from the movie Jaws…to this day! Ok, yeah, I’m basically a scaredy cat when it comes to ocean critters. 😉

      After watching all of these shows, I am too my friend. I gotta take a bath tonight and I’m not looking forward to it. What if Jaws comes through the faucet? Will you save me? XOXO – Bacon

    Mom and I love Shark Week. We watched a few of the shows, and Mom set the DVR to catch a few more that sounded good. She says a shark would eat me in ONE BITE. Beach? No thank you…

    Love and licks,

      I feel you. Shark week scares the bejesus out of me and the other anipals here at the Hotel Thompson. Sometimes I even watch with one hoof over one eye. And I think they could make a snack out of me too – gulps. XOXO – Bacon
