New Jersey fisherman Steve Clark was fishing near 28-mile wreck, a World War II shipwreck off of Cape May, NJ on June 21 when a 16-foot Great White Shark swam up to his boat and ripped off the chum bag.

"He's taking our chum bag! He's taking our chum bag!", one of the boaters screams.

"You bastard!", another yells. "He ripped our chum bag right off."

"Was it worth it though," asks the most sensible passenger, who sounds a bit like Kristen Wiig and was obviously thinking of the YouTube cash that could be hauled in.

British Distance Swimmer Protected From Shark By Pod of Dolphins - VIDEO

Swimmer

A two-meter shark closely followed British distance swimmer Adam Walker during his 8 hour, 36 minute swim through the Cook Strait separating New Zealand’s north and south islands this week.

Luckily, a pod of nearby swimming dolphins surrounded him, and the shark took off, says Walker. The dolphins even swam close enough to Walker for them to brush up against his body.

Said Walker on land: "I’d like to think they were protecting me and guiding me home.  This swim will stay with me forever."

Walker is planning to be the first British swimmer to swim seven oceans. He is doing it to raise money for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.  In the past Walker has also successfully swum across the English Channel, the Molokai Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar, the Catalina Channel, and the Tsugaru Channel.

Three Minnesota teens set out to create something spectacular in the town of New Brighton, and the result is monstrous. Braving the frigid, negative-degree temperatures and mounds of snow, Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz spent 95 hours making a 10-foot tall snow shark, swimming its way through the boys' front yard. According to Business Insider the brothers previously crafted both a gigantic pufferfish and a large walrus out of snow, but neither compares to the size of the shark. 

Check out great videos of the brothers' progress and their finished product, AFTER THE JUMP...
