SHARK BITE VICTIM TO SURF AGAIN (1st Runner Up for Daily Dumbass Award)

How does that old saying go...?

The definition of insanity is, “Doing the same thing over and over again expecting the outcome to change.” Apparently Megan Halava is has not discovered this yet, because she vows to return to surfing!

Hey, it's your hide fish-food. Do what you want. I'd suggest chumming the water first so it's over with as quickly as possible. No sense prolonging the inevitable.

(CBS) Just a day after being attacked by a giant shark while surfing off northern California, Megan Halavais said she has every intention of going back to surfing.
She described her ordeal thus:
"I looked back and it was like, huge, straight out of 'Jaws.' (It) came up from behind me, (then,) chomp! "I just turned right away, and I was like, 'Shark!' It was huge. It was like twice the size of me. Huge fin, like, the fin was as tall as me."
Said rescuer David Bryant: "We were charging in slapping the water and screaming at the shark: 'Hey, no, no, no,..."

Bad shark! Bad shark! Heel! Sit! Stay! Lord, they have eyes, but they will not see - note the sign below at the beach where Megan "Fish-Food" Halava was surfing. Again, I'm rooting for the sharks.

Ah, yes, rooting for the death of people you don't like. Very nice. I think you have managed to demonstrate clearly who the dumbass is in this case.

For your readers who may share your lack of insight, the sign was obviously not there *before* the attack.

Strangely, even though you are both clearly an idiot and lacking any sort of natural human kindness, I *don't* hope that you will be randomly attacked and have half your leg hacked off. Imagine that! Even those who demonstrate their own lack of character deserve to live their lives without being attacked. Novel concept, no?

You must be a leftist. No sense of humor.

Best wishes.

Nope, not leftist. Just don't think making fun of people's suffering is very funny. You actually can care about your fellow man without being on the left. It's called being civil. It's why people who believe in small government think it can work: because they believe that people are generally kind and generous and can look out for each other without the interference of the state.

A sense of humor is a funny thing. If anonymously posting repeated jabs at people recovering from an injury is your idea of fun, have at it. Hope it makes you feel better.

Hmmm, you certainly take everything literally like a leftist. None the less, I'll spell it out for you anyway:

tongue-in-cheek (tngn-chk)adj.
Meant or expressed ironically or facetiously. "a bantering tone"; "facetious remarks"; "tongue-in-cheek advice" [syn: bantering, facetious] adv 1: in a bantering fashion; "he spoke to her banteringly" [syn: banteringly] 2: not seriously; "I meant it facetiously" [syn: facetiously, jokingly]
