Je suis un bébé requin

I wanted to take a quick swim at the beach this morning but the rainy weather wasn't in my favor. Instead, I spent my Sunday AM sipping coffee and catching up on my google reader. Then I happily stumbled upon this fuckery:
source: crappy taxidermy
It immediately reminded me of this painting that left an impression on me from my American Art History course in college: John Singleton Copley; Watson and the Shark, 1778
A quick search then lead to this 3D insanity:
anaglyph version by Jim Long

And this adorableness:

Je suis un bébé requin

Au ventre blanc aux dents nacrées
Dans les eaux chaudes
Je t’entraînerai
Et sans que tu le sache
Avec amour avec douceur
Moi vois-tu bébé requin
Je veux te dévorer le cœur

[ ♫ ]

I’m a baby shark,
White-bellied and pearly-toothed,
Into the warm waters I’ll take you
And without you noticing, lovingly and smoothly,
I, pretty baby shark,
Will eat up your heart.

(an oh so precious blog with tons of shark posts)

I hope you guys have a great Sunday. Unfortunately there's no ocean or cute french singing sharks on my itinerary today. I'm stepping away from the internet and it's kungfu grip on my attention span before this whole rainy day is lost.

That poor stuffed shark immortalized looking so ugly. I don't think I want to see that scary painting in 3-D. But that video is so cute! I love the dancing dudes and the cute little blonde "shark". And "fuckery" is such a cool word.
