I’d go as far as to call them “cuddly” even.

That is, at least when they are not ruthlessly killing everything they eat.

Y’know the thing about a shark, he’s got… amazing eyes, large beautiful eyes, like a margaret keane painting eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be livin’… until he kisses ya. And those big beautiful eyes roll over like a friendly puppy dog, and then… oh, then you hear that wonderful high-pitch sound of happiness - like a British synthesizer band from the 80’s, the ocean turns psychedelic, and spite of all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, they all come in and they…just hug you to pieces.

are these cage diving cretins using burley to attract sharks so they can make money…you’re ok if you’re in the cage or on a nice boat, but not so great for people swimming and surfing in the area.

Duh, the guy and the shark were in the ocean. Of course his pants were wet! Sheesh.
