Shark Week

28 Jun

Guess what started Sunday night my friends.  You guessed it – Shark Week!  It started Sunday on the Discovery Channel.  We at the Hotel Thompson look forward to this every single year.  It’s so much fun to see sharks – on television of course.  Now when mom/dad go to the beach, they will think twice about putting their piggies in the ocean.

And never fear, Discovery Channel has promised not to make the mistake they did back in 2013 when they ticked everyone off during Shark Week.  Do you remember what they did?  They showed  “Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives”.  Everyone watched it including us here and then learned that was two hours we couldn’t get back.  The show was about the possibility  that the giant megalodon shark was still alive. After the show, it was revealed that the “scientists” in the show were really actors and the events in the documentary were scripted.  The Discovery Channel got so much backlash for that it wasn’t even funny.  And then can you believed that even after all that bad publicity, the Discovery Channel showed the sequel in 2014, “Megalodon: The New Evidence.”  Of course, by then we were all like, “Really Discovery Channel?”

We *almost* didn’t watch last year because of their stupid melodrama but for some reasons the sharks kept calling our names.

Even Houdini is getting into Shark Week this year.  Mom put his costume on and he was running around the Hotel Thompson.  I kept calling him Shark Bait – it was really funny to watch.

So my friends – will you be watching Shark Week?

    we sadly haven’t such cool events, but I think that Megalodon still exists… he is just to smart to dance around in front of divers, fishermen and other jumping jacks who disturb the peace of the sea…. Please keep me informed brother when they have super spectacular shark-news… we want to visit the beach next time… so just in case :o)

      You gotcha brother. I’m glued to my television during Shark Week. We just love it! Me and dad have been camped out all day together watching. I think dad’s even jumped once or was it five times. I lost count after the big JAWS got on the screen and I covered my eyes. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      aww – that would definitely be mom in charge. You should see the little guy’s clothes dresser. He might need another one soon. All I can say is thank goodness it’s him and not me – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      I know! It’s like our moms have two bodies but one mind – it’s unbelievable. I think both of our dads were astonished by that, you think? -Houdini

    I love your sweet outfit Houdini. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE BEACH! Like you and your family, I prefer my sharks on the screen and not swimming near me! If you see one in the water be like aussie Mick Flanning and “punch him in the back” and swim away! Here is my contribution for shark week.

    We’d love to watch Shark Week, but only the real stuff, not those corny Megalodon things. 🐋
