Shark El-Sheikh

by wjw on December 20, 2010

The Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh was being terrorized by a shark that had killed one swimmer and injured three more.

Then the man-eater was killed mano-a-mano by Dragan Stevic, a drunken Serb tourist.   The only problem being, he was too drunk to remember doing it.

Milovan Ubirapa, one of Stevic’s friend who witnessed the incident explained that Dragan had decided to go to the beach for a swim after a long night of drinking. As Dragan and his friends approached the beach, he saw a fairly high positioned jumping board utilized earlier in the day by divers.

“Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer and simply ran to jump. There was no time for me to react or to try to stop him, he just went for it” says Milovan.

“Dragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didn’t make as much splash as we thought he would”, explained Milovan.

The reason could be because Dragan Stevic ended up jumping straight on the shark which was lurking near the beach, probably looking for its next victim. Dragan had nailed it right in the head, killing it instantly . . . At the moment, the fearless hero is in a hospital recovering from alcohol poisoning.

I’m waiting for the first joke about “jumping the shark.” I’ve got the Laugh-o-Meter right here . . .

An urban legend, but an amusing one.

Well, just because it was published in a Serbian tabloid doesn’t mean it isn’t true! (in some sense . . . somehow . . . )

Did I ever tell you about that time I wrestled a gorilla whilst on my way home from the pub?
