    Drunk Man Catches Shark With His Bare Hands

    Who knew they had rednecks in Australia?

    I'm done some right damn silly things with the aid of drink, but haven't tried this (yet...sounds fun). Anyone have drunk stories to share which top this one?

    Drunk Man Catches Shark With His Bare Hands

    A man who caught a four-foot shark with his bare hands off an Australian beach said on Friday he only tried to do so because he'd had a few vodkas to drink.

    Louth Bay, Australia -- A man who caught a four-foot shark with his bare hands off an Australian beach said on Friday he only tried to do so because he'd had a few vodkas to drink.

    Bricklayer Phillip Kerkhof was fishing for squid with a few friends off a jetty at Louth Bay, a town on South Australia state's Eyre Peninsula, on Monday night when he spotted the bronze whaler shark swimming in the shallows, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

    Kerkhof said he sneaked up behind the shark before grabbing hold of it, and then wrestled with it before eventually managing to get it up onto a nearby jetty.

    "The only reason I sort of did it is because I had a few too many vodkas," Kerkhof said.

    "And next minute, I'm in the water with him and he's just going, going beserk trying to get away from me," Kerkhof explained.

    As he heaved it onto the jetty, the shark bit a hole in Kerkhof's jeans but all he suffered was a slight scratch.

    Kerkhof said he'd already had two meals from the shark and planned to use the rest in a weekend cookout for friends in the town, which lies 870 miles west of Sydney.

    His wife Christine said the meat had been "very tender".

    Many species of sharks are common in Australian waters, and there are an average of 15 shark attacks per year in the country. Roughly one person a year is killed by a shark.

    Last month, an abalone (shellfish) diver escaped after being almost swallowed head first by a huge shark off the New South Wales state coast.

    Shark's tasty, but I generally catch mine on a line - or in the grocery store. I think I'll leave the bare handed wrestling to the drunk guys. But who else can see a new sport developing from this?

    Never fear, fellow caring LEO's... I have already contacted PETA about this, and they are forming a special "Anti Inhumane Drunk Shark-Catching Uniform Monitoring" Program, or "AIDS-CUM" for short. With the help of AIDS-CUM, PETA's everywhere will be made aware of this disgusting cruelty suffered at the hands of these detestable drunk Aussies... WE MUST STOP THIS BEFORE IT BECOMES INFECTIOUS!!

    Should any of you, my fellow animal-lovers, see anyone perform such a heinous act as this in the future, PLEASE get AIDS-CUM IMMEDIATELY!!

    I thought that everyone has noodled for sharks. BTW a bronze whaler is called a dusky shark here in the US.
