THERE ARE A COUPLE SPECIAL WEEKS during the year that people usually look forward to like spring break week or a week’s vacation from work, but none of those hold a candle to the most beloved week in all the land: Shark Week.
Five days of predatory, toothy killing machine, shark awesomeness. We don’t know what it is about sharks that’s so damn intriguing that it deserves its own week. If someone pitched this idea to us and we had to choose between that one fish that has a Christmas light hanging from their forehead or a shark to give a whole week to, clearly anyone in their right mind would say the fish with the Christmas lights forehead because, hello. He has a fucking LIGHT BULB! ON HIS FOREHEAD!!!! How can a boring ole shark possibly compete with that?!
And that’s why we should all be thankful that we don’t work for the Discovery Channel.
Here’s five awesome shark videos to pump us up for Shark Week!
