Shark Chases Kayaker, Becomes Internet Meme

Last weekend, a kayaker off a Cape Cod beach had a very close encounter with nature, namely being persued by a great white shark. According to this CBC report, "I saw the fin out of the water ... I looked down and saw the body and realized that part of the shark was underneath me, and I just proceeded to paddle," Walter Szulc Jr. said Monday, adding it all happened very fast and his response "was just instinct — paddle and head out of there."
Shark sightings are on the increase on the Cape due to an increase in the local seal population.
Jeez. You just can't look at that picture without humming the theme from Jaws, can you?
