Summertime Fun is Couples Time Fun (Part 9)

Ahhh, summer.  The word conjures up long, hot, lazy days of fun in the sun.  And what better way to enjoy with that special someone.

Yep, tennis, golf, or just hanging out at the beach..... Wait, this has been the summer of the shark! On SyFy they've been running all of their classics for Shark Week.  Classics like Sharktopus, Gint Shark, Swamp Shark, Ghost Shark, Mega Shark, Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, Mega Shark vs Mecha get the idea (1).

And if I've learned anything by watching hours of these flicks, is that they always start out with a group of unruly teenagers playing around at the beach.  It gets ugly from there - fast.  In fact, it appears that the guy has already been victimized by a flying shark attack to the head! (2)

Down on the boardwalk, out by the sea.....What a perfect way to end a day of fun by the beach than by a visit to the boardwalk.  And in those funky clothes no less.  No way the sharks will find you here.  Well, except that those sharks can fly.....

Okay, enough of the sharks, I promise.  Really, I do.

After a tough day at the beach or the boardwalk, what better way to relax than with a fruity cocktail. And in this case, it's really fruity - like all fruit, which kinda goes with the guy's shirt somehow.  Still he's doing something right.  Because once you get the girl laughing, well, you got the girl.

Looks like Karen attracted a crowd.  And, hey, isn't that guy on the left the same one that was smoozing Kay?

Okay, this is getting ridiculous.  Now he's with Colleen?  Man he gets around.  I think we found the REAL shark of this story.  Changing into his motor cross muscle shirt, he also bats both ways... lets not go there! (3)

Now with Kathy! What's that guy's secret?  He's stolen the thunder of Shark Week and made it his own (even in flannel shirts.)

What kind of man reads JCPenney's Summer catalog?  His coy grin perfectly matches his fashionable tunic shirt conveying a laid back 'tude that belies the girl-crushing predator beneath.  He is the Shark and the Nado of summer -  circling the open water and rounding up all the lovely fishes of the sea!


(1) Yes, those are the titles of actual movies.  And I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I've seen them all!

(3) Be sure to check out the small pic of Kathy in the upper right.  Now, how many times in those shark movies did things take a horrible turn for the worse when all the teenagers board the party boat?  Usually right after this, a lot of fake blood ends up in the water. The horror, the horror.


  1. Ah, the 70s, when we only had Jaws to terrify us. And Sharknado Week ended with a new movie about mutant tarantulas with a few people from Police Academy to protect us from them. And there will be a 4th Sharknado next year.

    1. After watching the ending for Sharknado 3 with The Hoff left on the moon and Tara birthing her child through a shark, my head was fried. I decided to save the lava tarantulas for another time!!
