Shark Week…The cure to what would otherwise be just another tepid week on Discovery Channel!
Warning: Shark Week elicits strong emotions. Side effects may include shirking all of one’s adult responsibilities, an inexplicable urge to streak at the soonest pro sports game, and the munchies.
According to Wikipedia, “Shark Week was invented to help the average person have a greater respect for Sharks as more than killing machines.” This annual festivity has come a long way since 1987, by establishing itself as a crucial player in the innovation of drinking games and fresh excuses not to go to work.
This year’s Shark Week takes on a fresh twist, with a contest that asks “How Do YOU Celebrate Shark Week?” The 30- second video clips will compete for votes on Squabbler.com, a site by Midd alums Mike Bender ’97 and Matt Bijur ’97. The best will be aired by Discovery Channel.
