The sharks are working up an appetite in the Gulf of Mexico -- but the real feeding frenzy is back on shore.

Maybe they think that we should celebrate Shark Week year-roiund? I'd be up for that...

I {heart} Shark Week... Sad that it's over....

Here's an interview with a couple which was unwittingly jet-skiing and swimming among the sharks. They're now semi-famous.

Well, Jay, it's like the song goes: "Shark Week comes but once a year."

Tourists are screaming
The sad, sad news
Oh, what a shark week
to have limbs to lose

My leg is gone
I've no defense
To save my ass
From these Hammerheads

The Times will be writing
About "Jaws" tonight
Right through the marrow
these damned sharks will bite

Please come home from Daytona
Please come home from Daytona
If not in one piece
Then at least alive

Friends and relations
Send salutations
So shocked but curious of their fears

For this is Shark Week
Shark Week, my dear
The time of year they eat the ones you love

So won't you tell me
You'll never more roam
Near any beaches
Washing up in bloody foam

There'll be no more sorrow
No grief on the sand
Because it's Shark Week
And your ass is is staying on land.

It's just a pack of dingoes with scuba gear.

Everyone knows sharks are those cute furry little animals that spend all day running round and round on those wheels in little cage and that they wouldn't harm a fly.
