WW #46 - In case of shark attack...

DIVER TIP: Never enter the water without one of these Hawaiian Shark Sticks!

"If attacked by shark or moray eel, hold stick vertically and insert into animal's mouth to prevent closing of jaw... If the animal should bite you, insert stick in animal's eye and push. DO NOT BLEED! This will only excite the shark or eel..."

  6. Too funny! At first I thought it was a real item. Gullible, I guess!

    My Wordless Wednesday Post is up and I am again looking for an answer to a puzzle. Check it out and see if you can help figure out what it is. Comment and leave a Mr Linky to your site.

  9. Too funny! We spent the last week in the states glued to the TV each evening at the hotel watching shark week. I didn't see this thing mentioned even once. Maybe they will fix the oversight next year.

  14. Great find that is pretty funny. I will make sure to always carry one just incase the sharks are kind enough to laugh along with me!

    Happy WW

  16. Somehow I don't think I'll ever be seeing if it works!

  17. Welllll, I think I'll stay on the beach. But, I like the souvenir! :D

  18. I've heard stories about this stick before. I hope it works and also that I will never have to use it :o)

    ReplyDelete
  19. From the "Natural Selection Shop" - that's great!

    If you're dumb enough to use this item, then its just proof that your not fit enough for survival.

    I love it!

  20. (I hope the sarcastic misspelling comes through!)

    (It seemed like a good idea, but looking at my post, it just looks like I'm a candidate for shark food.)

  21. People always come up with such interesting and simple items to over-charge tourists for.

  22. Well, Bobbie you sure made me laugh! Can you imagine trying to stick that thing in the shark's mouth the way it's illustrated on the package? And also sticking the shark in the eye but making sure sure not to make him bleed? Ha! I'd just be screaming silently underwater if I came across a shark...maybe not nursing sharks though... I've been in the water with them already. :)
    Say hi to Jerry!

  23. That's priceless. I have to send this link to a friend of mine who's an open water diving instructor. She'll howl. And she could use a few laughs right now.

    Thanks!

  24. I think I would try and make friends with him rather than giving him a sharp stick in the eye.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha! I didn't see that item at the aquarium when we went a few months ago! We need to check back, that is definitely something to have in case of a shark emergency, especially since we are at Shark's Cove every weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't know why, but I have the impression that the stick might not be 100% effective... ;-)

    That was very funny. Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Too funny! I don't want to be close enough to shove a stick in his mouth.

    Thanks for visiting my quilt barn post!

    ReplyDelete
  28. heheh...that's a good one. I will remember that the next time I'm in the waters!! Thanks for the laugh..I so needed it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi Bobbie, I think that stick might work. But wouldn't we be tempted to run if one came at us with mouth open that large!
    I hope your WW was happy, thank you for the visit and nice comment, mine was the lady in the bar window and the many bicycles and the one that you liked. :-)

  30. This product NOT unconditionally guaranteed

    I wonder how many people lodged a complaint to get that put on the package?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great shot. You had me going at first.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes I need that shark stick also to push the boat away from the dock perhaps....funny post there blue...cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, now, there we go. A stick to handily put in the mouth of a shark (or eel). I'm thinking not so much. Chances of me being that close to a shark are nil. Pretty darned funny, though!!

    And I'm on the same track as Dennis - "or worse, a banana?" ROTFL!!

  34. Hi everybody. Thanks for visiting. Looks like everybody got the joke. ;-}

  35. Ok, so I know that this is probably not the correct post to ask you about this, but oh well. I want to purchase a set of Merrells. Now, I personally wanted some ankle support, but the mid height ones seem to go really high and limit your movement. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi ScienceGuy - Actually, we're not familiar with Merrells, but generally speaking -- ankle support usually is a good thing. Maybe you need to consult with someone who actually uses Merrells themselves. ;-}

  38. Well, Kathy -- we can't be serious all the time. :-D

  39. I had to giggle when I read this. I'm from Hawai'i and never did spend an overextended amount of time in the ocean because of sharks-well,that and I'm not a very good swimmer.

  40. Hi Aloha Monkey - Glad to know it gave you a chuckle. If you're fearful of sharks, maybe you should get one of those shark sticks! ;-}

  41. Thanks for sharing such a nice advice.Shark is a very dangrous.We should be beware of fatal shark attacks. You can find sharks in New Smyrna Beach in Florida, Oahu beach, hawaii beach. Though floating shark are available on some beach,but it is of little help.
