just got this in an email.
I think it's fake. what do you think?






YOU HAVE TO READ THIS FIRST BEFORE LOOKING AT
PICTURE.

Family on vacation in Australia for a week and a half when husband, wife 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 picture of his mum and dad in all their gear so he got the under water camera ready to go. When it came to taking the picture the dad realized that the son looked like he was panicking as he took it and gave the 'OK' hand sign to see if he was all right.

The son took the picture 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 panicking. When the parents asked why, he said 't her e was a shark behind you' The dad thought he was joking but the skipper of the boat said it was true but they wouldn't believe him. As soon as they got back to the hotel they loaded the picture onto the laptop and this is what they saw.

They're not all what they seem to be. All you have to do is turn around and poke it in the eye and it will leave.

Ha! Your habitat is being destroyed and your kind diminished by poachers. You are doomed! DOOOOOOOOMED!

Actually, I was adopted at an early age by a Missouri family. Their habitat's not doing so great, either, but it's more of a subprime loan thing. I swear, the world is one big hyena-ridden banana peel these days.

So it's reasonable to say that the shark gets within 5 feet of them just to smile big for the picture. Then what? He stealthily goes in reverse?? Or did he first tape a "BITE ME" sign on the back of one of 'em?

That was what I was thinking... the story isn't even believable, much less the picture.

come on, if you're going to show that picture with that story at least make in somewhat believable. That shark looks like it could kick Jaws's ass

The tricky part is reaching around the teeth to reach the eyes.
