Yes, it's that time of year where we all spam Twitter with "OMG IT'S A SHARK" tweets with hashtags of #SharkWeek and #SharkWeek2012.
Nerds will fight over the most badass sharks, whether Killer Whales are tougher (Why hasn't a 'Shamu vs Jaws' movie been made yet?? SyFy, I'm looking at YOU...) and other things that, well, really don't matter.
Now here's the part where I alienate my readers. I do this from time to time, but mostly when I talk religion or politics. Now, I do it with sharks.
I'm not really a fan of sharks, and I don't watch Shark Week.
Yep, the secret it out. I often look for Shark Week alternatives whenever I can.
Shaq Week. Could Shaquille O'Neal, in his black-irish awesomeness, take down a shark?
Probably not, but I bet he could dunk on one. Maybe even outrap it.
And, I mean, come on. Shazam? SO much better than any shark movie out ther-- wait. Nevermind.
So, thanks to Team Coco, I am offering some other alternatives to Shark Week (just in case you're not a fan of the Shaq Attack...)
How about, in honor of Game of Thrones, we do 'Stark Week?'
Oh wait, we do that every week don't we?
How about bark week, where we celebrate wood in all its woody glory?
Lastly, I'm a big SciFi nerd. I love me some Star Trek. What about...
What about you? Are you a fan of Shark Week? If not, what alternatives would you suggest?
