It’s that time of year again. That one time of year you need to look up what channel the Discovery Channel is. The only time you might need to pick up some adult diapers. The week you clear your schedule each night to relive that time you saw Jaws when you were way too young. The time you curse yourself for going in the ocean this vacation, and make a mental note to never go back in again. Obviously I can only be talking about one thing. It’s Shark Week bitches. More

Ah, Shark Week– that magical time of year devoted entirely to things that will eat you if you get too close. Alas, Shark Week is always over far too soon; but never fear! Here are 10 more sharks of the fictional variety to hold you over until next year’s sharkstravaganza. Just be careful around large bodies of water– you never know what might be lurking there.
This week is the 24th annual Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Jeff Kurr has worked for the network for two decades putting together some of Shark Week’s most popular programming; this year, his special Great White Invasion kicks off the week last night. I met Jeff at a restaurant in midtown Manhattan. He showed up wearing a gold necklace with a shark tooth pendant (more on that later) and a giant bandage on his hand from where a precancerous mole had been removed. (When you spend so much time on boats, it’s important to know the signs of skin cancer.) Jeff talked to Crushable about why you should be careful about eating fish tacos in Mexico and how he wants to solve the mystery of shark sex. More
Last night the new movie Shark Night 3D premiered in L.A. It was pretty boring, but luckily a giant inflatable shark showed up and made the whole party a thousand times more interesting. Shark Movie stars Sara Paxton and Dustin Milligan posed for photos with the shark, but star Katharine McPhee did not, so I am posting pictures of them and not of her. More
Do you know that if you paid money to fly yourself to Australia, you could pay even more money to go swim in a giant, pretty-safe-we’re-sure plexibox next to some giant alligators? Hate to sound like Bobby Buzzkill over here, but this story kind of reminds us of this old Mitchell & Webb sketch. More
