More shark, less snark

Shark Virgin Birth! Praise Jawsus! (punchline stolen from Halcyon) Meanwhile, in Dubai, they're so rich they can focus their attention on Sammy the Shark, and a museum in Hawaii is trying to dispel fears raised by recent shark sightings with an exhibition titled "Megalodon: Largest Shark That Ever Lived". And if you always wanted a shark of your own, contact Big Al. Just remember the words of Alby Singer.

Shark Jesus, huh? Yeah, I think we can find space for him in the aquatic apocalypse pantheon.

I did not know a shark baby was called a "pup." Thank you for adding to my secret cache of Jeopardy answers.

"How are little sharkies made?"
That what little Marky said.
His mother did not know what to say
After the virgin birth today.
She heard once of a komodo dragon
Who managed offspring without shaggin,'
And then it's said that the birth of bees is
Parthenogenesis, just like Jesus;
And you know the water flea
Has virgin births, just like the bee.
This raises questions theological,
But Marky's mother, ever logical,
Suggested to her little Mark
To pray to God, insect, and shark.

Why is it I suspect there is some aquarium keeper who's not talking?

It will only be a Jesus shark if it raises itself from its stillborn state.
