Normally by now the summer news cycle would be knee deep into what President Obama once termed the “silly season.”Last year at this time the media was consumed with the Ground Zero mosque.  The year before that it was the beer summit, and death panels, etc., etc.

Meaning, among other things, it’s been a while since the world has been able to devote itself fully to the original August silly story: Shark Week.

This year however the news is entirely glum.  And it doesn’t appear to be letting up anytime soon.

So!  Why not take a break from the plunging Dow and the meager Jobs Reports and look at some videos of sharks.  They won’t disappoint.

This is what it looks like when a shark EATS a whale.

Sharks can jump VERY high. Poor seals.

Good thing it was only a decoy?

Flipping in the air!

Do not go kayaking with sharks.

When a shark bites your leg, bite his nose.
