I think Sharks, the one with the big nose, are cute. Too bad they sometimes bite people. Every time I see a shark fin or "feel like they're around", the soundtrack of JAWS keeps playing again and again Keep playing that sound track and that might help people feel better about interrupting their water adventures for the day.
