Forget It, Jake. It's 'Shark Week'

I like sharks. I like 'em quite some little bit. (More than frogs, even.)

I like lookin' at 'em.

I like talkin' about 'em.

I like thinkin' about 'em.

So even though I have a major love-hate thing going on with Discovery Channel's "Shark Week," I'll be glued to the TV for the better portion of my evenings for the next seven days, if only to reaffirm for the umpteenth time that:

A.) Sharks are only out to bite me if they think I'm a seal.

B.) "Jaws" started a shark fearing frenzy that has helped inspire the decimation of the ocean's shark population in the four decades since.

C.) I definitely shouldn't order shark-fin soup no matter how cool it might seem to eat an apex predator that I'm a'feared of on account'a the possibility that it could eat me when I'm SUP'ing.

In honor of "Shark Week," below is a song I've selected for two reasons: Because it's good. And because it's got sharks in it. (Which is, like, redundant.) It's by the band LA Font, and it's titled, unironically, "Sharks."
