Fake Hurricane Sandy shark photo migrates to Chinese web

A Weibo user identified “the U.S. hurricane” as the source of the "shark swimming in New Jersey streets" photo, which has been proven to be fake (we could totally tell by the pixels). He added of the shark, “In China, it would’ve been cooked already.” More at WaPo.


  1. Fake Hurricane Sandy shark photo

    Curse you Sandy!  First massive destruction, then fraudulent photoshopping! 

    Will you stop at nothing? 

    What’s next, Rick Rolling?
