10 things I hate about sharks

I believe I can fly! Fossil Inioppterygii - Flying Shark

  1. Although vertebrates, sharks have cartilaginous skeletons. Why can’t they make up their minds?
  2. Sharks don’t fly anymore. Seriously, there used to be flying sharks. Flying Sharks. You can’t make this stuff up.
  3. Shark fins have no flavor. None. I mean what’s the point?
  4. Dermatologists get confused. Teeth for skin? What’s up with that?
  5. Sharks aren’t mollusks. Enough said.
  6. “Shark Tale” was an awful movie.
  7. Sharks almost never attack people. What are they waiting for?
  8. Sharks are terrible drivers.
  9. Jaws 2, The Last Jaws, Jaws 3-D, Jaws 4: The Revenge, Jaws 5: Cruel Jaws.
  10. Males have two penises. Each.
