If You Go Down To The Beach Today…

Here’s another item that may be true, or may be a hoax. Can you work out which?


Sink your teeth into this email and picture…

My mates cousin has been on holiday in Australia for a week and a half when him, his missus and their 15 year old son decided to go scuba diving. The husband is in the navy and has had some scuba experience.

His son wanted a pic of his mum and dad in all their gear so got the under water camera on the go. When it came to taking the pic the dad realized that the son look like he was panicking as he took it and gave the “OK” hand sign to see if he was alright.

The son took the pic and swam to the surface and back to the boat as quick as he could so the mum and dad followed to see if he was OK. When they got back to him he was scrambling onto the boat and absolutely packing it.

When the parents asked why he said “there was a shark behind you” and the dad thought he was joking but the skipper of the boat said it was true and that they wouldn’t believe him even if he told them what it was. As soon as they got back to the hotel they put the pic onto the laptop and this is what they saw.

(Try and tell me you wouldn’t have emptied your entire digestive system right at the point you saw it)

You’ve read the email and seen the photograph so now tell me…

  1. Well it is not really fair for me to guess on this one, as I was the boy in the story who snapped this picture!! I really didn’t think my parents were going to make it out alive!!

    If you want me to send you the original jpeg, just send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope and $25.00 USD to my P.O. Box in Los Angeles.

    Also, I will need a copy of your Drivers License and/or any other ID proving your age (21 and older only as this is extremely sensitive material and only suitable for an adult audience)!

    Just Kidding.


  2. No I didn’t get the reply.

  3. Did you get the mail I sent y’day?
