Go ahead and cross off ‘fishing off the front porch’ from the list of enjoyable summertime activities. If you’re impatient, skip to about :38.

Heck, we may as well round out the shark beat with a report of a baby shark for sale on the subway today, and a crazy picture of a shark stalking a kayak off the coast of Cape Cod this past weekend.

“So here’s some advice I wish I would have got when I was your age… Live every week like it’s shark week.” - Tracy Jordan

In its 24th year, the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week is really coming into its own on the internet. At least on the meme-filled internet of Tumblr/Twitter/Reddit etc. Add in the clever guerrilla marketing of having sharks appear off the coast of Cape Cod and NJ this past week, and you’ve got the makings of a media phenomenon I can hardly bear.
