Oh the irony of nature…
Hopefully this information counters the asinine belief that sharkfin soup is:
B. Works like Viagra… only better.
Maybe we should gene splice this toxin into Tiger Penises and Rhinoceros horns as well.
I can’t wait to see the class action lawsuit commercials for this! “Have you or your loved ones developed Alzheimer’s after eating shark cartilage? Call Sam!”
Well played sharks!
But, But, My holistic health food store didn’t tell me that! I’d better try some of the medicinal raspberries to cure the alzhiemers disease that I’m sure to get next.
PattonReyna is actually the pseudonym for “dishwasher.” A rather computer-saavy dishwasher. And if they’re from New York, is’s “dishwasha.”
Adam Dempsey…GOOD one!
Wait! But it’s natural!
Huh. Shark used to be cheap meat in the early ’80s, Pop used to marinade it in soy sauce. I kinda liked it. I guess you’re old when everything you like will cause you harm.
So in addition to creating 20 foot long supersharks which destroyed an entire marine science station, those Deep Blue Sea people were actually CAUSING alzheimers rather than curing it. Stupid scientists.
Well, there goes my Saffron Burrows joke.
Cant get the jaws theme out of my head now.
Side effect of all the frickin’ lasers they have on their heads.
Sharks: evolved to kill, no matter what.
