As if one would WANT to provoke a shark attack?
In case you were wondering, instead of the word squalo, some Italians use the expression pesci di cane, or pesci cane for shark. Pesci cane translastes to dog fish. Now, you may ask, "Yo, Oldbitey, where are you goin’ wit dis?" Bear with me and you’ll see because I was curious enough to have a look at what was keeping Katie-Sue occupied. You might be too.
If you’re not game to check out the link, what you’re missing are documented reports of peoplewho met their fate thanks to a really big fish with really big teeth. Really. Big. Teeth.
Some reports are more gruesome than others. There were words and phrases like, pieces, and washed up on the shore, and eaten feet first.
I could not stop reading.
After a few minutes of morbid, can’t-look-away-from-the-train-wreck-osity of it all, the fish-eating-man stories led me back to my earlier fear of the day; the Bull Terrier eating Rat Terrier terror (See yesterday’s blog post for details, Kids!). As I brushed my teeth and washed my face, I vacillated between picturing Jaws and Bull Terriers, Sharks that turned into Bull Terriers, and
Elvin Elvie, my neighbour’s muscled-up Bull Terrier, as a Bull shark zipping after a scrawny snack in the form of my widdle dawg, Budman. I went to bed convinced of nightmares to come.
